Create Slowmotion Videos Using the YouTube Video Editor

Want to understand why my dogs make such a mess when they drink water? Watch a slow motion video of the process and you'll see why right away. This week YouTube made it possible for anyone to create a slow motion video. The enhancements tool in the YouTube video editor now includes the option to apply slow motion effects to your videos. You can slow the action to 50%, 25%, or 12.5% of the original speed. I made a slow motion video of my dogs running in the snow. You can see it below.

Applications for Education
Student-athletes and their coaches might find the slow motion editing tool useful in helping them analyze plays from a game. Physics teachers might find the slow motion tool helpful in creating videos that help students see things that the naked eye couldn't see. For example, you could film a bouncing ping pong ball them slow it down in the YouTube video editor to help students see how the ball bounces.
