There are many reasons you might want to change the speed of a video. Maybe you want to make a slow-motion effect, or speed up a boring section. Either way, it’s easy to do it in Canva.
To change the speed of your video, first, open the editor and upload your video. Then, click on the video layer and select the “Speed” option from the toolbar. You can also opt to use Canva’s free stock videos and templates that can be accessed in the tab menu. Then, drag the video of your choice to your canvas for editing.
Alternatively, you can download the video first and use a third-party website to adjust the speed of your video if you didn’t see the “Speed” option from the Canva toolbar. Click the Share button, and make sure the format is MP4 Video before clicking “Download”.
Then, proceed to the third-party website of your choice or the site indicated in the image below. Click “Open file” or drop the video file you downloaded from Canva.
A new window will open, allowing you to select the new speed of your video. You can choose to make your video faster or slower, and even reverse the direction. Drag to the left if you want to slow down the speed of your video. Otherwise, drag to the right to speed up.
Click Save to download once you’re satisfied with the result.
Now, go back to Canva, proceed to the Uploads tab, and click “Upload files” to import the recently downloaded video. Once done, it will appear under the “Videos” category and there you can see the changes you made in comparison to the current video in your canvas.
Drag your latest uploaded video to your canvas and click play to preview the result. You have the option to add more changes to your video through the “Edit video” tab and click “Effects” or “Adjust” to add more adjustments to your video.
Once you’re happy with your new speed, simply click “Apply” and your video will be updated. That’s all there is to it! Now you know how to change the speed of a video in Canva.
