in Vegas you can insert a velocity envelope and go to 300%-then if that's not fast enough render the clip to DV-AVI and bring it back to the timeline and insert a velocity envelope at 300% repeat as needed.
You can also go into the clip properties and change the playback rate. That with the velocity envelope will give you 400% speed increase.

Ctrl-drag left to 400%, insert velocity envelop for another 300%. So that is 12 times faster. Don't forget to trim 2/3th of after the envelop.
Save it as xx.veg, import the xx.veg and repeat. 144x is often fast enough.

In Excalibur, there's the Strobe tool that you could use to cut x frames keep y frames. Then you could use the gap/overlap tool to remove the gaps. I'm sure Ultimate S has something similar.

Depends on how fast you want it. If you want it 4 times faster, cut 3 frames and leave 1 (or would that be cut 4 frames and leave 1?) Bottom line is that you can cut any amount out using this method meaning you could speed things up 2000x if you wanted.

Yep, ctrl-drag gives you max. 4x faster and the velocity envelop is 3 times faster. Together is 12 times faster before rendering or nesting.
