How to change the speed of a video
Proper timing and speed make videos more useful and spectacular. You can enable slow motion to add a zest of dramatics or speed up a video to spur the action. No matter your idea, you can fulfil it with our editor. Here’s how it works.
Upload a video
Open the Video Cutter in your browser using any device (phone, PC or tablet). Click ‘Upload file’ and add the video by dragging it or selecting from a folder. Wait until it’s exported. For large files, it might take up to 10 minutes, while smaller files are processed within seconds.
Set up the speed
Once your video is uploaded, you can find changes to its speed (or apply these changes to its fragments only by selecting them in the progress bar) by clicking the corresponding tool in the sidebar. Tap ‘Change speed’ and choose from available options (x2, x3, x0.5). Feel free to use other instruments from the panel if you want to make a slow-motion video or a timelapse.
Select encoding format
Unless you select a file format, your video will be saved as an MP4 file by default. Click the ‘Format’ button to change the file extension. Our app supports MOV, AVI, 3GP, MP4 and all other major extensions. After that, click ‘Save’ and wait a few minutes for encoding.
Save and use
When the video file is encoded, click ‘Save’, and it will be automatically downloaded on your device. Regardless of the edits and their number, it will be a high-quality video without watermarks. It’s ready for use, so you can publish it anywhere and anytime. Note that speed changes, just like other alterations, can impact the size of your file.
