How to make slow-motion effects

Create better-looking, smoother slow-motion effects by using Optical Flow and Time Remapping effects in Adobe Premiere Pro.

  1. Open the Speed/Duration dialog box, set Speed to 50% and select Time Interpolation > Optical Flow.
  2. For better results, click Effect Controls > Time Remapping and Add Keyframes (optional to reduce and then increase speed within the same clip).
  3. Set speed for your slow motion.
  4. Once you’re happy with the speed, click on Time Interpolation > Optical Flow for smooth slow motion.
