Snapchat’s “Director Mode” gives creators access to a variety of tools they can use when creating Snaps. One of these tools allows users to change the playback speed of their video clips. With this tool, users can cause clips to play slower or faster than they normally would.
Our guide will show you how to change a clip’s playback speed in the Snapchat mobile application.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Snapchat app on iOS.
Step 1: On Snapchat’s camera screen, tap the video camera icon on the right side of the screen to turn on “Director Mode.”
Step 2: Tap the speedometer icon on the right side of the screen.
Step 3: Tap “.5x” if you want your clip to play in slow motion, or tap “2x” if you want your clip to play back at twice the normal speed.
Now, you can tap the capture button near the bottom of the screen to record a clip as you normally would. When you view the clip, it will play slower or faster than normal, depending on your selection.
