‘Increase or Decrease a Video’s Speed’ Tutorial

Create a slow-motion or a timelapse effect

With VEED’s video speed controller, you can create a slow-motion or a timelapse effect even if you didn’t shoot the original video in those settings. Slow-mo videos are great for adding a dramatic effect or they could be useful if you’re creating a how-to video or a tutorial. This way, you could emphasize certain steps to make your message clearer. A timelapse, on the other hand, is great for creating B-rolls or for showing processes, that would usually take too long, at high speed. And it’s super easy to do, with VEED!

Speed up or slow down parts of a video

You can also select parts of the video and speed up or slow down those particular clips. All you have to do is split the video into parts, select those clips, and change their speed. To split the video into parts, just move the slider—drag and drop the blue indicator to your desired location, and click on the ‘Split’ tool. You can also right-click on it and select Split. Select the clip you want to fast forward or slow down, then change its speed in the settings. You could have some clips in slow-motion and some at high speed. That’s really cool!

Add other video effects

To make your video even more stunning, you can use VEED’s free video effects and camera filters. Just click on Filters on the left menu. You can add color-grading in your video to make it look brighter, dimmer, or make the image black-and-white. Add a fish-eye effect, night vision, and so many other fancy effects! You can also add audio, images, and text. Caption your video to make it more captivating. Draw over your video with the brush tool—great for presentations and tutorials. There are so many other awesome tools that you can use. And they’re all available online for free!

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.
