Tutorial: Adjusting Your Video's Duration Using the Time Tuner in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015

With the new Time Tuner feature in Premiere Pro, Adobe now makes it easy to adjust the length of a video to fit a specific requirement by adding or removing frames at scene changes, audio passages, and during periods of low visual activity.

Here’s a short tutorial on using the new Time Tuner feature in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015. This new feature could come in handy if you’re editing programs and videos that need altered durations or total record times for different audiences. With the new Time Tuner feature in Premiere Pro, Adobe now makes it easy to adjust the length of a video to fit a specific requirement by adding or removing frames at scene changes, audio passages, and during periods of low visual activity.

In a nutshell, you can alter the duration of a video by increasing or decreasing it by 10 percent. This could be helpful when you're on a deadline or if you want to automate your process a bit. In the example in the video below, I’m going to take a 16-second clip that a client wanted to use for their Instagram channel and use the time tuner feature to deliver a 15-second video that meets that channel’s time limit.

As you’ll see in the tutorial video, you can do all of this without having to adjust the duration of your video in the timeline. With the video already placed into a sequence, you navigate to File > Export > Media. In the Export window, scroll down to the Effects area and locate the Time Tuner and enable the check box next to it.

Now you can fill in a value for the target duration or adjust the duration-change percentage value. You can then export your video and you will have a 15-second clip (or whatever you set as the target duration) where Premiere Pro has removed some frames to fit your desired duration. This feature could really help in those situations where you need to crank out a video that needs to be a bit shorter or longer than your edit.
