Let's imagine there is a moment in time where something so spectacular happens, like an amazing, high flying, rim rattling, slam dunk. The raw athleticism cannot be fathomed in a realtime video clip, so we must manipulate time by slowing the action down in order to truly capture the essence.

Perhaps something hilarious happened – like pie in the face. The same principle above applies, except for raw athleticism, we have raw humor. Like athleticism, humor must also be manipulated at times to capture the essence of i.e a pie in the face.

Hence, in this post we share the simplest methods to slow down a video. Let's begin.

The easiest way to slow down a video online

Im going to show you how you can slow down a video online in under 5 minutes, without needing bulky, sophisticated, professional video editing software.

Step 1: First sign-up for a Motionbox account if you haven't already! Create a new video from the dashboard. Make sure you select the correct video dimensions.

Step 3: Your video will automatically be added to the timeline. From here you can trim your video or split your video

Step 4: Now to slow down your video, select the video by clicking on it (either the art board or the timeline). Once your video is selected you will see options in the toolbar to the right hand side. Click 0.5 to slow it down by half.
