How to Speed Up a Video on iPhone

iPhones are among the most extensively used smartphones in terms of photography and videography. Everyone is familiar with slowing things down when it comes to filming films with an iPhone. 

Taking slow-motion videos has never been easier than it is now, thanks to a dedicated Slo-mo camera option. But how can you increase the pace of a movie on an iPhone?

That’s something your iPhone can help you with as well. Unlike slow-mo, you can’t speed up the video while it’s being recorded. It is possible to accelerate a previously recorded video. 

With that in mind, you must choose between speeding up a regular film and slowing down a slow-motion video. Look at how we can accomplish it in either of the two cases below.

How to use iMovie to speed up a movie on an iPhone

The technique is straightforward, and it is as follows:

1. Open the iMovie application on your iPhone. To continue, select “Continue” from the welcome screen.

2. Go to the Projects page and click the plus (“+“) sign button to start a new movie.

3. A pop-up window will open with the headline “New Projects“. Choose a movie from the drop-down menu. 4.4. Choose a video from your camera roll, then start the process by clicking the “Create Movie” option at the bottom of the following page.

4. To find the speed tool, which resembles a speedometer, tap the video clip in the timeline and wait for the video editing tools to show before selecting it.

5. Drag the yellow slider at the bottom to the right or left to speed up or slow down your movie. You can choose to increase the speed by up to two times the original or decrease it by up to one-eighth of it.

6.To finish the process, select Done in the top-left corner of the screen.

7. When you’ve completed editing your movie, go to the bottom of your screen and select “Share,” then select a location to store it.

How to Speed Up Video in the iPhone Photos App

The Photos app, which comes pre-installed on the iPhone, is likely the simplest and quickest way to switch from slo-mo to standard speed video.

This folder contains all of the slow-motion videos you’ve taken with your iPhone. Slo-mo videos can be sped up using photo editing software. To get started, simply follow the instructions outlined below.

1. Open up the Photos program.

2. From the drop-down menu, choose albums.

3. Click “Slo-mo” after scrolling down to the Media Types section.

4. Choose the slow-motion video you want to accelerate.

5. Select Edit if the video is already open.

6. The bottom of the page has a lot of vertical lines flowing down it. The speed of the video at that point in the recording is indicated by these vertical lines. Slow-mo sections have lines that are wide apart, and normal speed sections have lines that are near together.

7. By tapping the bar with the lines in it, drag your finger over the slo-mo section. All of the lines will now be close together as a result of this move, indicating that they are moving at a typical speed.

8. After you’ve adjusted the video speed, click Done to save your work.

Have you changed your mind and want to reintroduce the video’s slow-motion effect? Select a portion to be included inside the yellow bar to slow it down.

Pull the bar of lines apart with your finger until the lines are no longer as close together.

Some Additional Details

  • It’s worth noting that iMovie may take longer to export your film depending on its size. Throughout this operation, make sure iMovie is running in the forefront. This is because minimizing the program will cause the export to pause, forcing you to restart from the beginning.
  • Also, keep in mind that your iPhone has the ability to shoot slow-motion video out of the box. As a result, if all you’re doing is slowing down movies, you won’t require iMovie. You may also vary the frame rate on your camera to change the speed of the slow-motion recording (FPS). If you want to go back to regular speeds, you can use the built-in video editor to do it fast and effortlessly.
  • iMovie’s video editing features include, among other things, the ability to speed up and slow down clips.

Final Thoughts

On your iPhone, you may occasionally want to play a movie faster or slower than the video’s default pace. For example, speeding up a video or a movie is a frequent approach to save time. You can also slow down a video clip or a specific section of it.

The method demonstrated today is a more convenient way to change the video playing speed on the iPhone using the iMovie and Photos applications, rather than editing the source video.
