Your Smartphone does not support Slow Motion videos? here is how you can enable them
Slow-motion (commonly abbreviated as slo-mo or slow-mo) is an effect in film-making whereby time appears to be slowed down. It was invented by the Austrian priest August Musger in the early 20th century. This can be accomplished through the use of high-speed cameras and then playing the footage produced by such cameras at a normal rate like 30 fps, or in post-production through the use of software add-ons such as Twixtor.
Why your smartphone does not support capturing slow-motion videos?
The Slow Motion feature is achieved when each film frame is captured at a rate much faster than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving more slowly. A term for creating a slow-motion film is overcranking which refers to hand cranking an early camera at a faster rate than normal (i.e. faster than 24 frames per second). Slow-motion can also be achieved by playing normally recorded footage at a slower speed. And yes the smartphone you use may not support fast capture and this is the reason you cannot shoot a Slow Motion video on your Smartphone.
This is where some video editors come into the game, where your smartphone shoots a video at a normal frame rate and then you can edit it for making it a slow-motion or a time-lapse video. So for having a slow-motion feature on your non supported Smartphone, you need to install a third-party slow motion video app on your Android. With slow-motion video apps, you can easily record or edit the recorded videos to apply the slow-motion effects.
To go further with the tutorial you need to install a Slow motion video recorder/editor app from the play store. I would like to suggest you download the Slow Motion Video FX app as I have personally used the app, it is an amazing app for editing and making Slow-Motion Videos.
