Slowing the video speed or simply slow motion helps in capturing certain aspects of the video that are too fast and cannot be seen clearly by the normal eye. For example, slow motion will enable students see how a fast cheetah runs on camera. Increasing the speed of movement or simply fast forwarding the video helps in eliminating certain aspects of the video that are not necessary to the ...Show more
