YouTube's New Tool Makes it Easy to Create Slow-Mo Videos

Working under the premise that “slow-mo makes everything better,” YouTube added a new slow motion enhancement tool to its built-in editor on Tuesday, making it accessible to everyone who uses the site to create videos.

YouTube’s built-in video editor already has a number of different effects that users can harness when editing their videos. The slow-mo effect was developed in-house at YouTube, using frame analysis to blend intermediate frames together. The result: Videos look like they were shot with a high-speed camera.
Videos that feature slow-motion effects seem to be popular on YouTube. For instance, the Slow Mo Guys channel has more than 2 million subscribers and 220 million overall views.

Check out a slow-mo video created with the editor, above. The original video is posted below:
