No doubt slow-motion videos are a source of extreme fun for iPhone or iPad videographers. They allow you to slow down the dramatic effect of every single action. You can shoot videos in slow motion at 120 fps, if you own an iPhone 5S. Fortunately, if you have an iPhone 6 or later, you can enjoy shooting slo-mo videos with two options – 120 frames per second and 240 frames per second. If you wish to convert slow motion videos to regular speed, you can do so easily. You can adjust the part of the video that has been slowed down by you earlier.
Here’s an easy step-wise guide to convert slow motion videos to regular speed on iOS:
- Open your video in the Photos app.
- Click on Edit, in the top-right corner.
- You will notice a list of tick marks below your video in the edit mode.
- The section with the tightly packed tick marks shows the regular speed video.
- The section with loosely packed tick marks shows the slow motion portion of the video.
- There will be two sliders dividing slow motion section from the regular speed one, at the beginning and at the end.
- To convert your slow-motion effect back to the regular speed, you need to move the sliders at any of the both ends of the slow-motion section together.
- As soon as you align the two sliders and all the tick marks get packed together tightly, your video becomes a regular speed iOS video from beginning to the end.
When you shoot a slow-motion iOS video, the video displays a few seconds at the start and at the end of the regular motion by default. You can adjust the sliders to maintain the length of the intro and outro. You can also slide the bars straight to either end to make the entire video back to slo-mo from beginning to the end.
The flexibility lets you start and stop the slo-mo effect exactly at the right point of time in your iOS video. Sadly, the edit tool is only a one-way street. You can’t convert a video shot at regular speed to slow-motion with the Photos app.
Yet, you can do this in iMovie for iOS, which lets you add video effects, including speeding up or slowing down parts of your video projects.
