    Some tips to help you improve TikTok Slow-motion

    Not just TikTok, but there are some factors that can make your slow motion videos on TikTok good or bad. Before shooting any type of footage, be sure to pay attention to their importance.

    1. Shooting under fluorescent lights requires a faster shutter speed. normally, the shutter speed is set to 2 at the frame rate. However, due to the flickering nature of fluorescent lights, you'll need to set it to 3x or even 4x, depending on their glow and intensity.


    2. Remember, randomly adding slow motion videos won't help your cause. Especially on TikTok, where the competition is fierce, you will have to use this effect with great intelligence. Any video that isn't sentimental - love at first sight, heartache - won't require slow motion. Such videos lack a dramatic dimension, which is integral to how slow motion mode works.


    3. Make sure that along with the video, it also slows down the playback of music or sound. Otherwise, the final video will lack cadence and rhythm, and will be unwatchable.
