Up the production level of your video
With a slow motion effect you are immediately increasing the perceived production level of your video. This means more engagement and higher viewer numbers.
Bring a new perspective
Because the human eye is used to seeing things at normal speed it will often miss details in certain movements or areas. A slow motion video will help a lot in presenting a new perspective.
Create a level of intrigue
Since seeing things in slow motion is not something people are used to you will instantly increase their curiosity and make them focus on your topic.
Create a different vibe
With this effect you can also change the emotional power of your video, an expression of sadness or happiness can be greatly amplified by slowing down a video.

With your files in Flixier drag them on the timeline and on the right side of the screen you will find the Video Speed slider. To make a slow motion video drag the slider to the left to decrease the playback speed of your video.
When you are happy with the result you can export your videos in minutes to your computer or directly to Youtube, Facebook, Google Drive and more.

I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.
My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
