Can You Slow Down a Video in Camera Roll?

Have you ever recorded a video in Camera Roll and wished that you could slow it down? Maybe there was a specific moment in the video that you wanted to analyze more closely or you just wanted to create a cool slow-motion effect.

Whatever the reason, it’s definitely possible to slow down a video in Camera Roll. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how.

Step 1: Open iMovie

The first step in slowing down a video in Camera Roll is to open iMovie on your iPhone or iPad. If you don’t already have iMovie on your device, you can download it from the App Store.

Step 2: Import the Video

Once iMovie is open, tap “Create Project” and select “Movie”. Then choose the video that you want to slow down from your Camera Roll and import it into iMovie.

Step 3: Adjust Speed

With your video imported into iMovie, tap on it to select it. Then tap on the speedometer icon at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up the speed adjustment options.

You can choose from several different speed options ranging from 0.1x (extremely slow) to 2x (double speed). For our purposes, we want to slow down the video so we’ll choose one of the slower options.


If you’re not sure which speed option to choose, try experimenting with different speeds until you find one that looks right for your video.

Step 4: Preview and Export

Once you’ve adjusted the speed of your video, preview it by playing it back in iMovie. If everything looks good, tap “Done” and then “Export”.

You can export your slowed-down video at its original resolution or choose a lower resolution if file size is a concern. Once you’ve made your selection, tap “Save Video” and your new, slowed-down video will be saved to your Camera Roll.


Slowing down a video in Camera Roll is a simple process that can be accomplished with iMovie. By adjusting the speed of your video, you can create cool slow-motion effects or analyze specific moments in more detail. With these steps, you’ll be able to slow down any video in no time!
