Windows Movie Maker is an easy-to-use video-editing program that comes with most Windows PCs. The software enables even the least technically-savvy filmmaker to create top-notch videos with ease. Users can incorporate video clips, music files, pictures and even PowerPoint slides in the works they create using Windows Movie Maker.
Right-click on the slide you wish to slow down on the Movie Maker timeline or storyboard, depending on whether you're editing in timeline or storyboard mode.
Select "Video Effects" to open a list of available effects.
Scroll down until you see, "Slow Down, Half," and highlight the option.
Click "Add >>" to add the effect to the "Displayed effects" box, and click, "OK."
Press the "Play" button on the video preview left of the screen to test whether your slide now plays at your desired speed. If the slide still plays too fast, repeat steps 1-4 as many times as needed until it plays at the desired speed.
Tips & Warnings
- To undo some or all of your slowing, simply right-click on the slide, select "Video Effects," highlight one or more of the "Slow Down, Half" effects in your "Displayed Effects" box, and click "<< Remove."
