1. Apple’s been promoting the new iPhone’s slow motion camera with Burberry and Instagram for the last couple weeks. The videos are clear and sharp:
2. But the Instagram app doesn’t yet support slow motion video uploads. The workaround most people recommend is to email yourself a copy of the video, save it to the Camera Roll, and upload from there. But that reduces quality by a lot:
3. The other recommended workarounds are either too complicated or require a paid app.
5. Pick a slow motion video
6. Open Splice and create a new project. Call it whatever, doesn’t matter.
7. Tap Video/Photo and import your video.
8. Tap the video, then click on the little running man icon.
9. Slow down the video to 25%, or 50%. Try to hit an even multiple.
The quality seems very good — the app appears to be reading the file’s higher framerate.
Another thing you might consider doing here: lowering the sound. This method makes the sound, which is already low and stretched, sound sort of robotic. So you might be better off muted, or with music.
10. Export in HD. It only takes a sec. (This whole process takes about a minute, really.)
11. Now the video is in your camera roll and compatible with Instagram.
12. And that’s it. Add filters, go nuts.
14. Your Instagram slow vids will look better than all your friends’, at least until Instagram updates.
15. Happy slowing!
