How to Create a Slow Motion Effect

By Bart van der Molen

Modifying the playback speed of your footage is a great way to add some drama and creative flair to your video projects. You can set your video in slow motion to emphasize a movement, or set it to play at lightning speed and give your movie a comical air. You can also use this feature to achieve time-lapse and strobe effects on your videos and photos.

Learn how to create a slow motion effect in this tutorial by video editing expert Gripps. He’ll show you the three ways you can do this – using your cursor to stretch the clip out on the timeline, using the variable speed option by adding key frames and adjusting their speed, or by using the speed/time-lapse option to increase or decrease the playback speed on the entire clip. You’ll also get tips on how to adjust your project settings to smooth out the slow motion effect.
