Retrieves a specified frame from the source clip for each destination frame. This is meant to be used by animating the value of Get Frame to speed up, slow down, or reverse the input clip in an arbitrary way as desired. On AE, this effect should be applied directly to a clip because any prior effects on the same clip will be ignored.

In the Sapphire Time effects submenu.


Source:  The current layer.   The clip to be processed.


Get Frame:   Default: 0,  Range: 0 or greater.
The frame number of the source clip to access. This parameter should be animated to control the desired changes in motion. (If the Get Frame parameter is not animated it will just give a single still frame of that number for the entire clip.)

Interp Frames:   Check-box,  Default: off.
Selects the method to use for non-integer frame number references. If disabled, the nearest integer frame number is used with no interpolation. If enabled, it performs a weighted interpolation between the two nearest integer frame numbers and usually gives smoother results for slow motions.

Opacity:   Popup menu,  Default: Normal.
Determines the method used for dealing with opacity/transparency.
All Opaque:  Use this option to render slightly faster when the input image is fully opaque with no transparency (alpha=1).
Normal:  Process opacity normally.
As Premult:  Process as if the image is already in premultiplied form (colors have been scaled by opacity). This option also renders slightly faster than Normal mode, but the results will also be in premultiplied form, which is sometimes less correct.
