A slow-motion video is essentially a video slower than average in its playback. When this happens, however, you seem to start watching every frame of the video being played. This is why capturing slow motion video in high resolution is very important. The higher the frame rate, the more the video can be slowed down without any noticeable flickering.
Slow-motion lets you capture some fun videos by turning everyday things into something special.
How does slow-motion work on Instagram Reels
Right inside the Instagram app, Reels lets you record 15-second videos. The idea behind the slow-motion feature is to give users the option of using their Reels videos to build some pizazz. The best part of the app is how it connects to the audio.
Reels helps you to add some music from their massive library. But the issue with slow-motion is that it slows the audio to a deep drawl. However, by speeding up the audio while you record, Instagram has combated the problem.
That way when you slow down the video, the audio goes back to its normal 1x speed!
How to record a slow-motion video on Instagram Reels
Recording a slow-motion video on Instagram Reels is very quick. There are two choices for the speed of playback when slowing a video down: 0.3x and 0.5x. Play around with these velocities to see which one matches your video better.
For recording a slow-motion video on Reels, start the Instagram app first, and swipe right to the camera tab. Alternatively, press the Story button in the upper left corner.

How to record only part of a video in slow motion?
You don’t need to record your video in one session on Reels. Your video can be captured in short burst clips. Then you can stitch those clips together to create a full video. Using this method, you can record one clip with a slower setting for the playback, which the rest at a normal setting of 1x. This will only make a portion of your video sluggish, while the rest play at normal speed.
