To use Track Stretching Mode:

1. Select an interval on the Timeline.

2. Enable Tracks stretching mode.
To do this, you can either select Tracks stretching mode from the Edit menu (or press Ctrl + T):

...or you can click the Stretching mode button on the Timeline:

3. The interval you've selected will now be marked with a yellow frame.

4. What you should do next depends on how you'd like to adjust the selected interval.

To change the length of a part of the interval, select a frame on the interval and drag it:

Keep in mind that this won’t change the overall length of the interval.


Type of interpolation on the adjusted interval will be changed to Fixed.

To exit Track Stretching Mode without making adjustments to the selected interval, simply click Left Mouse Button anywhere in the program window.
