Why Would I Want To Make A Slow Motion Video?

Slow motion can make even the most common every day task look extraordinary. Do you own a lighter? Film yourself sparking up, put it in slow motion and you’ll have your very own mini fire work show! Have a slinky lurking somewhere in your house? Drop the slinky in slow motion and see it levitate as it slowly falls into itself! You don’t need any special skills or equipment to appreciate the amazing effect slow motion can have on every day occurrences; simply use your slow motion app and truly appreciate the small things in life.

If you have an artistic side and a love for making videos, slow motion can really come in handy. It has never been easier to make a stunning artistic video or even create your next masterpiece. As slow motion can make so many things look more impressive, the possibilities are almost limitless. A frog hopping across the water, a flying bird, destroying almost anything… all these things look amazing in slow motion, and as you’ll be using your phone it’s never been easier to share your creations with the world. Get inspired by these amazing slow motion videos.

If the above has failed to convince you, there are also practical uses. If you’re watching something with subtitles or written instructions you can slow it right down so you don’t miss anything, or if you’re watching say an exercise video and you need to see exactly what the instructors are doing you can use your slow motion app to see every single movement. Playing with time can also be a lot of fun; double the speed to hear your voice become chipmunk-esque, or slow everything down to truly freak your friends out.

Fast Motion

Many of these apps also have fast motion features, so you can slow down and speed up time to create a truly unique video. The possibilities really are endless.

Convinced? Check below for our list of the seven best slow motion apps currently available on Android smart phones.

  1. Slow Motion Video FXSlow-fx-motion-Video-Apps

What does this app do? The sole purpose of Slow Motion Video FX is to allow the user to create and record slow motion and/or fast motion videos. This is an easy to use and straightforward application that allows you to record a video and make it slow/fast motion then and there. You can also select a pre-existing video to edit; it doesn’t matter if the video is old or new. This app also lets you play with the sound, so you can slow down and speed up voice recordings.

This app lets you choose to cut a specific part of the video and only make that specific part slow/fast. The app will then copy the changes and create a brand new video just showing the section you edited, whilst leaving the original completely untouched. You can then easily share your videos on Facebook, Snapchat and other social media platforms.

Any downsides? Depending on the size and quality of the images, the process may take several minutes. The audio from a slowed video is understandable, but isn’t particularly good. Users have also complained about the adverts and reported some glitches that slow down the app.

This app is available for free as it uses adverts to generate revenue. There is a pro version available, but as the free version has almost all the same features all this will really do is get rid of the adverts, so you should only purchase it if you really, really cannot stand ads.

  1. SloproSlow-pro-motion-Video-Apps
    What does this app do?
    Slopro is another fast/slow motion video app. What is so unique about this app is that it allows you to make a slow/fast motion video in real time. You can literally start playing the video and select the speed you want. You can also change the speed whilst the video is playing, and your changes will then be added to the video. This allows you to really mix and match your time speeds and put a unique spin on all your videos.

Any downsides? This app only offers six speeds; three slow and three fast. This does make the app easier for beginners, but it doesn’t allow you a lot of leeway. Videos created with the free app will also be watermarked. Users have also complained that the app lags, suffers from glitches and can sometimes shut down unexpectedly.

Price: This app is also available in free and pro-versions. The free version still allows you to use the slow/fast motion features, but it will add a watermark to your video. If that is a problem we recommend the pro version for watermark free creations and some great additional features.

  1. Fast & Slow Motion Video ToolFast-Slow-motion-Video-Tool
    What does this app do?
    This is another fast/slow motion app. What sets it apart is its adjustability; you can slow the speed down to 1/8x, or you can speed it up to 8x it’s original speed.

Any downsides? Unlike Slow Motion Video FC, this video tool will not automatically trim your video, although you will have the option to cut it if desired.

This app is great if you just want to watch a video in slow/fast motion, I.e. if you need to watch an instructional video in slow motion, or if you just want to have a bit of fun with the settings.

Any downsides? This app isn’t suited to those who want to create and share videos. If you only want to watch a video in slow/fast motion and are also looking for an app to watch regular videos in, then KMPlayer may be for you.
