It can be fascinating how much of a difference slowing down a video can make. The ‘slow motion’ effect is often used in movies for that very reason, and it can completely alter the feel of a video and provide greater emphasis on certain details if used properly.
Assuming you want to use that same effect on your own videos and reduce their speed to create your very own slow motion masterpiece, the only thing that you really need is Movavi Video Editor. It can be used as slow motion software by following these steps:
- Load the video into Movavi Video Editor by clicking ‘Add Media Files’ and selecting it.
- Open the ‘Tools’ tab and find the ‘Speed’ slider.
- Move the ‘Speed’ slider to the left to reduce the speed of your clip as much as you require (moving it to the right will increase the speed instead).
- Click ‘Export’ when you’re satisfied to save the video.
The one thing that you should bear in mind is that when you slow down the video the audio will be slowed down too – and you may not want that. Fortunately Movavi Video Editor can correct that quite easily and you can opt to mute the audio and re-add the original track at the normal speed, or add an entirely new audio file of your choosing.
Before you save your video you should also look at some other the other features in Movavi Video Editor to see whether you can use them to improve your video further. By using these features you could cut and combine video segments, enhance the video quality, fix common problems, add customizable text, apply special effects and filters, insert stylish animated transitions, and much more.
By experimenting with the features in Movavi Video Editor, learning how they work and combining them with one another – you could produce a truly impressive video. The best part is that because it is so easy to use it won’t take you long to master the software and be able to apply the full range of its features.
In fact the best thing for you to do would be to try it out for yourself. By starting to apply the features in Movavi Video Editor to create a slow motion video and subsequently edit and improve it, you’ll soon see just how straightforward the software is.
