I use Vegas and it has ramped slow up slow down or non ramped speed selection. The algorithm created intermediate frames to prevent the flashing caused by stretching them out. If you are going to use the ramped method you have to add a velocity envelope. Otherwise just grab the end of the clip hitting ctrl and the mouse button and drag the clip to make it longer. It will do a fairly decent job on the sound unless you stretch it too far. I cut a short piece of audio and patch them. I video racing so its easy to cover up something like that. You don’t want to try this on progressive footage. The results suck. You need interlaced footage for the algorithm to work properly then deinterlace the final video. If its going on the web in progressive you need to deinterlace. It ruins a decent video to see the interlace lines on a crt.
