How to make a video in slow motion

An Austrian priest named August Musger first invented the original concept of slowing down a video, also known as slow motion, in the early 20th Century. This video editing type has been widely used in modern filmmaking.

Content creators apply this style to recapture key sports moments of all kinds of athletic activities, or to film natural phenomena such as lightning and rain falling.

However, nowadays slowing down a video is far easier than stressing over complex filming styles. It's possible to do that without the use of complicated programs that take up more time learning how to use it than creating the content.

With Clideo, you can easily slow down or increase the speed of a video, and even mute the sound for extra effect. The tool is safe and secure, as all videos are removed from the servers after editing. It doesn't require any downloads and is easy to use for any video content creator skill level, whether you're a beginner or advanced user.
