I am able to change the speed of video clips using the hare/tortoise slider in iMovie 4 but the increase in speed is not drastic enough. How can I speed my clip up even more ?

I can't find any software on the web to do this, without forking out for Final Cut etc

Bingo.

In other words, iMovie has limitations. If you want more features and such, then you will have to upgrade your software.

This little tutorial mentions another software option for slowmo that might be able to do the opposite.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

if you download the SECOND latest iMovie (the iMovie that just came out, in my opinion, is a complete regression); you can get it for free on the apple website, i could be wrong. Im sure its on the net somewhere though you can speed up a clip, let it render, and then repeat the process until you reach your desired speed. it's a little make-shift, but does the trick. (that'll be as good as you can get without getting fc, etc)

Best,

I was thinking the same thing (about the export then import thing). If you are looking for a program that gives you unparallel performance in time-control, I recommend looking into Adobe AfterEffects. Yeah, it's a little spendy but the time-remapping tools and the included keying plugin "Keylight" (for green/blue screen effects) make this gem totally worth it. Check out VideoCopilot.net for some great free video tutorials. One of them deals specifically with time-remapping for that neat Matrix effect.
