Popular Chips

Tik Tok developers have made sure that their users can make a cool clip themselves.

Slowmotion (slowmotion).

Slowmotion is one of the most sought after filters. From English, its name translates as “Slow Motion Effect”.

This is a video shot with a frequency of less than 24 frames in 1 second. In cinema, it is usually used to show the appearance of time dilation..

Thanks to this, the shots obtained are more epic, they allow focusing on the beauty of movement, the comic of the moment. To create it, you need a video editor or application with a slowdown function.

IPhone owners have the power to make Sloomo without installing additional programs.

The process of creating the effect is as follows:
