You love films, don’t you? When the hero thrashes the villain in a super cinematic slow motion scene, you cry your throat out in excitement. When heroin’s hair moves through her cheeks in a slow pace, you smile with your heart. And, when glass shatters in a slower-than-slow speed, you appreciate the work of the editor.
Have you ever wondered what makes such scenes awestricken? I am sure you have already found it out. Yeah, slow motion can turn an ordinary video into a supremely awesome one. You don’t want an expensive gaming rig and Adobe Premier Pro to make a slow motion video! Just your Android device and an app are enough. I sense you have a question on your mind! Which is the best slow motion video app for Android 2018? Well, the entire post answers your query.
Best Slow Motion Video Apps for Android 2018
When the disappearing status feature made its way to WhatsApp, people started looking for convenient Android video editing apps. The most sought out one is slow motion apps for Android. That’s why I handpicked an array of such apps here.
1. VideoShow Video Editor
You may not just want a slow-motion video maker. Maybe, you need a full-fledged editor to produce a high-quality video. For the same reason, I have shared VideoShow editor here. Not just editing, but you can take selfies with motion stickers, filters, and beautify effects as well.
In case you don’t want to spend time finding tracks and effects for a video, the elaborate themes collection comes to your rescue. Just add the videos, select the theme, and you are good to go! So, how do you make a slow motion video on it? Install the app from the link given below, open it up, add the video files, and choose the button that says Speed. You can easily set the playback speed there. Not to mention, bringing it close towards the left makes the video slower.
VideoShow weighs only 24 MB in size with all the effects it brings to the table. In case you are interested in making GIF files, you can do that too here. The only issue is a watermark, they put on output files made using the free version of the application. You can either go for the upgrade option (available inside the app) to remove it or keep if you have no issues.
2. Slow Motion Video FX
Do you want an exclusive slow motion video maker for Android, not an extended editor? Then, Slow Motion Video FX can satisfy you in the best way possible. The developers have made it so easy for the users to make a slow video.
You can use the link given below to visit the Play Store installation page for the application. Once you complete the installation and open it up, you can see a screen with a couple of buttons, their logo in the middle, and a few other options below. What you should do is hitting the Start Slow Motion button. Then, it will ask you whether you want to record a new video in slow motion or you like to make an existing video slow. You can choose any of them as per your need.
Once the recording or selection of files is done, you can set the speed from a range of 0 to 1. Of course, there are values greater than 1 available. If you place the selector close to 0, the output becomes slow and it turns the other way round as you go beyond 1. The best thing about Slow Motion FX is it creates no stutters or frame loss.
3. Coach’s Eye
Not everyone wants a general slow-mo maker. For example for a sports coach or a player, they specifically want to know the strengths and weakness (posture, techniques, etc.). For these purposes, an ordinary app doesn’t fit. That’s where the significance of Coach’s Eye kicks in. If you edit videos on computers, you may be familiar with Camtasia. Coach’s Eye comes from the same developers.
You can record videos instantly and make them slow moving. In case you are a sports coach, you can show your players where they should improve. They have two plans after the trial version goes over. The free version provides you with 2 GB cloud storage to store files and you can access them from any device. The VIP plan costs $5 per month, which has 150 GB storage space. Moreover, the app also contains some premium tools to spot the errors in techniques of players.
4. Fast & Slow Motion Video Tool
Next up in our list of Android apps for slow motion videos is a simple tool with an easy to use interface. Unlike Slow Motion Video FX, you can’t record videos inside the application here.
Once you open the app, you will see all the video files inside your device. You can then choose which one you want to edit. After the selection, you get speed from 1/8x to 8x. So yeah, it is possible to fasten or slow down without getting into any complication. You may not like this app if you prefer a light application. It weighs 35 MB in size.
5. PowerDirector Video Editor
A full-swing editor is available for 35 MB. Will you still opt for the exclusive slow mo maker? Yeah, PowerDirector Android Video Editor weighs a bit over 35 MB and offers you tons of features.
You can edit your videos just like you do on a computer. They allow you to work with green screens, brightness, contrast, color details, and much more. The editor performs the best on phones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 or higher, Samsung Exynos 7420 or higher, Nvidia Tegra K1 or higher, MediaTek P10 or higher. You can make photo slideshows, full videos, and of course, slow motion scenes as well.
