# Is it possible to speed up/slow down the preview playback of an animation in the Timeline?

Using the Action Editor and in Pose Mode, I am editing the animation of my armature at 30 FPS. Maintaining that framerate, I would like a slower preview of my animation (like play at 50% normal speed) in the Timeline when I press Alt+A. Is this possible? How can I achieve this?

• I would argue that this is not a duplicate question. I saw that question before posting this and as I understand it, that question resolves the issue of playback at a lower framerate. I would like to know if it's possible to have a playback at a lower speed, as if time is slowed down. – brain56 Nov 19 '15 at 4:07

It expresses the animation speed as a ratio of original speed / new speed, where the speed is expressed in frames. So to reduce the speed 50%, you can use 50/100, 1/2, 100/200 or any other ratio which reduces to 1/2, i.e. 1 frame for every 2 frames.
• @AndréSantos No. You'll have to adjust the pitch accordingly (put in the time remapping values as old/new). If you want to change the tempo without affecting the pitch, then you'll have to do it in something like audacity. – gandalf3 May 7 '17 at 7:04
