Un’app rallentatore video: Slow Motion Video FX

With Snapchat, your options for slowing down the video are quite limited. It's an excellent option because it's quick and simple to use, but you can't choose how slow you want your video to be. Also, you can't just slow down certain parts of the video.


Slow Motion Video FX is available for Android users. It is useful because it offers many options to slow down the videos. You can choose the speed of the entire video or slow down specific parts.

It's a little more complex than Snapchat, but with this guide, you won't have a problem using it. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Download the app from your app store and install it.
  2. Once installed, launch the app. Click Start slow motion and tap Choose movie.
  3. Once the video is open, you can choose the advanced option and the simple one to slow down the video. If you want to slow down the entire video, tap Simple. If you just want to slow down selected parts of the video, tap Advanced.
  4. If you tap Simple, you can slow down the entire video by moving the speed slider. To add a slow motion effect to your video, choose the speed between 0,25 and 1,00.
  5. If you tap Advanced, you will be able to customize the slow motion effect. First, you need to select the start and end points of the video. You can move them up and down to slow down or speed up the video. To slow down the video, move the points below the halfway line and choose a speed between 0,25 and 1,00.
  6. Finally, when you're done adding slowdown effects, tap Save and start processing. Here you can add more effects, such as music or filter. The app works very smoothly, so it will process your video in no time. You can then share the video on Snapchat or just save it to the Gallery.

Slowing down of the video through Videoshop

Another great slow motion video app is Videoshop. It is available for iOS and Android users. The design is elegant and intuitive.




There are two options for slowing down the video. First of all, you can record the video directly from the app and then edit it. Alternatively, you can import the pre-recorded video from the gallery.

There are various options for editing video besides slowing it down, adding audio, cropping and adding text. For $ 3,99 / month you also get other options like the voiceover option or reverse video.


If you select the video from the gallery, you will have to scroll down the toolbar and find the running man icon. Click on it to change the speed of your video. It is quite simple. If you move the slider to the right, it will speed up your video. If you move it to the left, you will slow it down.

When you're done editing your video, click the green check button to save it. As with Snapchat, you can slow down the entire video here, not just parts of it. But it's useful if you want to play around with your videos a bit more and add other effects.
