YouTube adds slow-motion video effect to editing suite

Google allows users to create entertaining and innovative YouTube videos through various effects and features on its YouTube Editor. The company has now added a new enhancement to growing portfolio of automated editing options – Slow Motion.

The slow motion feature is expected be beneficial for those editing music videos or short films. The feature allows them to mix up or set the tone for their videos.

“Anyone who’s seen a slow motion video of a dog drinking water, rubber bands breaking a watermelon, or footballs in faces knows the age-old proverb: slomo makes everything better. What’s the best way to make slomo better? Let everyone make their own slomo video on YouTube,” says YouTube team in a blog post.

YouTube's slow-motion effect looks smoother and makes the video speed reduced to 1/8th speed.

“To create a slomo video, visit the Enhancements tool or the YouTube Editor and apply it to one of your existing videos. You’ll get a smooth, slomo video that makes it look like it was filmed with a high-speed camera.”

YouTube demos the slow motion feature with following videos:
