Slow-motion videos give memories a cinematic appeal. But what if you need to remove the slow-motion effect from a clip? Luckily, there are two ways to convert a slow-motion video to a normal video on your iPhone or iPad. I have explained both below.

Things to know before you convert a Slo-mo video to a normal video
- You can’t convert a standard iPhone video shot at 30 or 24 fps to Slo-mo using these methods. You need third-party apps for that.
- Once you convert a slow-motion video to a regular video, it will still be listed under the Slo-mo category of the Albums tab in Photos.
- Converting a Slo-mo video to a regular video won’t reduce its size.
How to change slow-motion video to normal speed on iPhone
- Launch the Photos app → Go to the Albums tab.
- Scroll down and select Slo-mo under the Media Types label.
- Tap a video to open it in full screen → Tap Edit.
- Tap the slider and drag it towards the other.
All wide-spaced lines will align tightly, denoting that video will now play at standard speeds.
- Tap Done to convert the slow-motion video to a standard video.
Pro tip: You may also use the sliders to specify which portion of the Slo-Mo video you want to play at a slow or normal speed.
If you didn’t like the result of the converted video, you can also revert the video to its original slow-motion state just as easily with these steps.
- Open the Photos app → Go to the Albums tab → Slo-mo.
- Tap and open the video that you converted earlier.
- Tap Edit → Revert → Revert to Original.
How to use iMovie to convert slo-mo video to normal on iPhone
- Download iMovie and launch it on your iPhone or iPad.
- Select Movie under Start New Project.
- Select a slow-motion video → Tap Create Movie.
- Tap the Settings icon → Toggle on Speed changes pitch → Hit Done.
- Select the video timeline → Tap the speed icon in the toolbar.
- Push the slider to the right and set it to 1x.
- Once you’re done editing, preview the video → Tap Done → Share icon.
- Then, select Share Video → Save Video to export the edited clip.
All of us love editing videos on the iPhone to create social-media-worthy content. But quite often, the original is more appealing than the edited or processed videos.
