FCP 7-speed

I just installed final cut 7.0 and opened a project created in 6.6 but when changing the speed of a clip from 100% to 40,000 (timelaps) it says I can't increase the speed past 10k. In fcp 6.6 I have most of my timelapses speed set to 40,000 and I had no issues. Is there a setting I'm missing here?

thanks

Is your clip long enough for a 40k speed up Greg? I just grabbed an old DV PAL clip thats 14 seconds long and applied a 40k speed up to it ... the speed was capped at 36.1k and the duration dropped to 2 frames, anything faster and it would have been a still.

my clips for a timelaps are usually 3-4 minutes. I never had any issues on FCP 6 and 7 is saying there's a 10k max. I know FCP 7 has a new "change speed" feature so I may not be clicking on something.

Well bugger me, I just tried using the Speed dialog and got the same result ... still, weird as it may seem Greg, you can avoid this strange new limitation by bypassing the Speed dialog (Cmd J) and instead open your clip into the Viewer window ... now switch to the Motion tab and change the Speed using the Speed controls there. That works fine.
