Video editing is a time-consuming activity that requires significant know-how to achieve professional grade results. Video editors presently available for consumers or amateurs offer a single-dial speed-setting that can slow down or speed up a video by a certain factor. The result of this setting often falls short of what the creator had in mind and is far less engaging for the viewers, who are used to professionally produced content. This disclosure describes techniques that enable a broad range of video-speed manipulations using templates. A user interface with a few buttons, sliders, and simple, intuitive settings is made available to novice users. The techniques enable efficient video-editing for fast/slow motion styling on smartphones or other devices with similar sizes or form-factors.
