Hello,

Yes, you can change the speed of segments in the timeline from 'Segment command.Speed..'of the context menu of the current sequence.

For best results when changing speed, I'd suggest rendering image sequences with your animation software, not video, for import into Lightworks, e.g. in PNG format.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

Let's assume you're working in twos with your animation and you want to play at 24 fps. Animate at 12 fps as singles, then import that as an image sequence into a 24 fps project.

Edit that into your timeline. It will be running at twice the speed that you need. Right click on the animation in the timeline, and from the drop down menu that appears, click on "Speed..". The "Change Segment Speed" menu will appear and have the default speed of 100%. Click on the downward arrow beside that value and choose 50%. Set the method to "Resize" and click the "Do It" button. It will now run at the correct rate, and your animation will be in twos.

That description applies if you're using the fixed user interface, which most beginners do. If you're using the flexible interface click on the "Advanced" button. You will then be able to directly set the speed. You will need to trim the end of the clip out to full length, because the flexible version can't (currently) automatically resize to compensate for the speed change.

PS: I have assumed that you are an experienced animator. If not, animating in twos (extremely common in cel animation) is when you repeat each frame twice. There are several advantages but the big one is that you only need 12 discrete images for each second of animation. Singles means that each frame is different, so you need 24. That is often used for high speed action in a project that otherwise uses twos. If you have watched cartoons on TV you will have seen a lot of twos animation.
