Also known as {{Ramping}}.

A frenetic style of video editing where the action is partly [[{{Undercrank}} sped up]], partly at normal speed (or [[{{Overcrank}} even slower]]). For example, there could be an EstablishingShot of helicopter footage that is initially at double speed, then changes to normal speed as it approaches its destination. Or, in a historical battle sequence, an attacker's leap could be fast forwarded, then his sword swung in slow motion, then zipping through the stricken enemy's collapse, then showing the next blow in slow mo again, and so on.

* ''{{Achron}}'': A common tactic, since all players have the capability of modifying the rate they travel through time. This leads to players dropping into slow motion during pitch battles to better micromanage their forces, then jumping into fast forward after the battle is over to catch up to the present again.

* In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', Quicksilver's SuperSpeed scenes are shown this way; he sees everything in slow motion, but the movie will quickly alternate to the "standard perception" of time, which is much faster.
