Here’s how to change the speed of a video clip in Screenflow, either speeding it up or slowing it down. If you hover the mouse over the end of the clip, and press the Option button (Mac), then you will see a clock icon. Holding Option, drag the end of the clip right or left, making it slower or faster. You will see a popup with the time and speed hover over the end of the clip. Pretty easy right!
I actually stumbled on this by accident. I hit some keys and it selected a part of my timeline and then I couldn’t get it ‘unselected’ or ‘deselected’ so I could export the whole video. Turns out its a simple keyboard shorcut.
My screen looked like this:
with a blue portion of the timeline ‘selected’ or ‘highlighted’. What I had done was accidentally press the keyboard shortcut
"I", the letter “i“. This selects part of the timeline, or creates a “Mark In Point”. You can also do this by clicking Mark -> Mark In Point.
Now, to get rid of this, simply type
"control+z", or select Mark -> Clear In & Out Points.
By the way, Screenflow is an awesome inexpensive video editor.

A very strange and annoying but happens when importing a screen recording into iMovie or Final Cut Pro X. After taking a screen recording using QuickTime, when I try to import it into iMovie or Final Cut Pro X, the entire clip is covered with this red tint.
There is an easy fix. Before importing the video into iMovie or Final Cut Pro, right click on the file and select “Encode Selected Video Files”. For me its under the “Services” menu.
Choose your preferred settings
Now wait a few seconds or minutes, depending on how long your video is. It will make a new version that can now be imported without any red tint or filter. So easy!

Very easy – simply press ‘B’ and the cursor will switch to a blade icon. Click on the clip where you want to split it, and done! Press ‘A’ to switch back to the normal cursor.
I couldn’t figure out how to get the blade cursor to show up in a screenshot – anyone know how to do that?
