YouTube has added a new slow motion enhancement tool to its built-in editor, making it accessible to everyone who uses the site to create videos.
The built-in video editor already has a number of different effects that users can harness when editing their videos. The new slow motion effect was developed in-house at YouTube, using frame analysis to blend intermediate frames together. The result is that 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.
Below is a video created using the slow-mo effect.
