Controlling the speed of your images appearing in your Animoto Memories slideshow video is useful for syncing your photos and video clips to your chosen music, and also for adding more images to any song.

To adjust the speed:

1. Click the gear icon in the corner of your unproduced video.


You will see editing options in the pop up box, including song start time and image pacing:


2. To change the pace of your images, move the pacing slider to the right (faster) or left (slower). Generally, if the pace is faster,  you'll be able to include more images. 

Turning on the Auto feature will pace the images in your slideshow to match your song selection.

3. Click SAVE.

More Options for Changing the Speed of Your Video

  • Choose a slower song.

All Animoto visuals are designed to intelligently respond to the structure and rhythm of your music. So if you choose a more mellow tune, your images will appear at a slower pace.

  • Use the "Spotlight" feature.

The "Spotlight" feature lets you emphasize certain photos by keeping them on the screen longer. Highlight the images you'd like to see emphasized in your video, then press the "Spotlight" button. 


  • Choose a different style.

Some styles can accommodate more photos. Play around and see which one works best for you.
