SlowMoVideo is a free and open-source program that allows you to create slow-motion videos from your footage. It analizes the pixel rate and calculates the frames between the videos recorded by your camera. SlowMoVideo uses the following

The app allows you to smoothly slow down and speed up your footage, with an optional motion blur. In addtition to this, it tries to find out where pixels move in the video (this information is called Optical Flow), and then uses this information to calculate the additional frames between the ones recorded by your camera.

  • The app does not work with a constant slowdown factor but with curves that allow arbitrary time accelereation/deceleration/reversal.
  • Motion blur can be added, as much as you want.
