How to slow down a video on time lapse

Hi everybody,

I'm pissed off, I wanted to film a blue marlin underwater, and had little time to my disposal. I had to react quickly I put the settings of my GoPro on video before entering the water, but the settings got changed after I jumped into the water, so the video was taken in time lapse mode, which is awful. I can't use it in anyway.
My question is: is there a way to edit the video, to slow down the crazy pace. It doesn't matter if there's no sound or if the quality is not good. Even if I can make photos out of it, it will be fine.
I hate the function time lapse. I never use it, it's too fast anyway.

Is there an app on iOS or Android to edit the footage? I don't find anything on Quik
I hope someone can help.

Re: How to slow down a video on time lapse

Hi @cooljump8745

 

Sorry for any troubles caused. You should be able to grab a photo from the time lapse video. See How to Extract a Photo From a Video Clip in Quik for desktop

 

Regarding the video, you may have the video edited using a 3rd party application. 

For other editing options on your home computer, we have had several customers give good reviews of Pinnacle Studio HD, Davinci Resolve,  Windows Movie Maker, Adobe Premier Elements, and Apple's iMovie and Final Cut X. 
For more advance video editing applications, please refer to DaVinci Resolve (Free Version) or Adobe Premiere Pro CC (Paid).

 

Please note that you can set the cameras default mode to Video. Preferences> General> Default Mode

Also please check the information regarding QuikCapture listed on this article.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Thanks!

Ej

Re: How to slow down a video on time lapse

Hi Ej,

Thanks for your response. I will try to see what I can do. The programs you mentioned are for PC, is there application available for the cell phones?

Besides, although I'm pretty sure I was holding the cam the right way, the image is upside down. Is there any way to correct or adjust that other issue?

Thx in advance

Re: How to slow down a video on time lapse

Hello @cooljump8745. You may explore the Quik for mobile app that can be downloaded and installed on your mobile device. This app allows you to rotate video clips and photos, and also adjust the speed (fast, slow motion, regular). There are steps here that will guide you with creating a video using the app. Feel free to post back for any questions or concerns.

Re: How to slow down a video on time lapse

Hello marustyana,

Thanks to the app, I can rotate the picture, but I can't really slow down the pace, not slower than x3 anyway.

Re: How to slow down a video on time lapse

@cooljump8745 - The app can only do slow motion to a certain extent. You may need to consider third-party applications that can create more advanced slow motion effects. Thanks!

Re: How to slow down a video on time lapse

On YouTube I could reduce the speed to 0,25 of the original pace, but couldn't do anything to correct the upside down image.

Could anybody recommend me a good third-party application for Android?
My second question is: how can I extract photos from my video on Quik for Android? There are many ways to edit a video, including the rotation option, but no possibilits to extract a photo for as nuch as I know.
