Speeding up Vittle Movies

Here's a simple technique to speed up movies created with Vittle. Shorten certain sequences to keep your audience more engaged.

On the iPad

To speed up videos with iMovie on the iPad:
  1. After creating your video in Vittle, save it to the Camera Roll.
  2. Now open iMovie for iOS, create a new Movie project, and insert that clip.
  3. Tap on the clip, then tap on the speed icon in the toolbar that appears at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Drag the slider to the right to speed up the clip.
  5. Tip: In the project settings, uncheck “Speed changes pitch" to avoid your voice sounding like a chipmunk.
  6. Export the project as a new (now sped up) movie.

On a Mac

Want to speed clips up faster? iMovie for the Mac can speed up clips even more:
  1. Save your video and copy it to your Mac.
  2. Open iMovie, create a new project, and drag the clip into it. Important: Make sure you are dragging the clip into a Project, not just into the Library.
  3. Click on the clip, then click on the Speed Editor icon above the project preview. Select the speed (2x, 4x, etc.) you want.
  4. Check “Reverse Pitch” in the Speed Editor to preserve the pitch.

Selective Timelapse

This is a great technique for creating timelapse videos. Use it to speed up detailed drawings, or to jazz up entire visual presentations. There's something mesmerizing about watching something that's simply sped up. Use this technique to create whiteboard-style presentations to promote your next project or class.
