From time to time, you may want to increase the speed of a video that you’ve recorded to produce a certain visual effect. It could be that you want to create a funny-looking accelerated motion, or it may be that you’d simply like to increase the pace at which you show a certain set of actions. In any case, the fast-forward video effect should be exactly what you’re looking for.
Learning how to speed up videos is part skill and part taste. Not only do you need to decide exactly which part of your video you want to speed up, but you also must know by how much you want to speed it up. Once you’ve decided both those things, you need to learn how to use a video editor in order to pull it off.
The easiest video editor that you can use to speed up videos is definitely Movavi Video Editor. Owing to how intuitive it is, you should be able to load your video and apply the fast-forward video effect almost immediately. In fact, it just takes a few steps:
- Click ‘Add Media Files’ and select the video that you want to edit.
- Open up the ‘Tools’ tab and adjust the ‘Speed’ slider to increase it speed.
- When you’re satisfied, save the video by clicking ‘Export’.
The only issue you may run into when using Movavi Video Editor to speed up videos in this way is that the audio will also be played at a faster pace and may sound strange. Fortunately solving that problem is really very straightforward and all you need to do is mute the audio and add a new audio track that can either contain the original audio or something else entirely.
While you’re doing that you should also enhance the video quality, cut and combine video segments, apply special effects and filters, insert customizable text, and use all the other features of Movavi Video Editor to good effect. Every one of them is designed to be just as intuitive as the last, so you should find it equally easy to experiment with them and then apply them to your video.
In fact you may even want to utilize other special effects in conjunction with speeding up your video to truly create a special and unique appearance for your video.
