It is possible to record slow-motion videos using the Canon M50 Mirrorless DSLR camera. Follow the steps below to create slow-motion videos:


  • In PBU, browse to the Video tab
  • Select Video Mode - either Auto Apply for one video or User Select to create multiple videos that your guest can choose
  • Click on 'Add Video'
    • Give your video a name
    • Select 'Slow Motion' under Video Mode
    • Set Recording Duration seconds. 
      • The max recommended is 5 seconds. 3 seconds is the optimal length. 
    • Under Video Segments click the + sign and set the speed of your video. 
      • The camera automatically records at 25% regular speed when slow-motion is enabled. Therefore, with this value set to 100%, the camera is actually recording at 25% of regular speed. To achieve a 12.5% speed, set this value to 50%. This is the lowest you should go to prevent artifacting. Likewise, you may also speed up the video. Set this value to 400% for regular speed video, and 800% for 2X speed video. 

      • Click OK
    • Click OK to get back to the main Video tab
    • Under Video Size at the bottom, select 480P or 720P. 
      • 720P should work for video 5 seconds or shorter. If processing time becomes to long for each video, reduce this to 480P and/or reduce length of video and/or increase speed of video.

  • You can also add an Overlay to your video. To do this, double click on the video you created in the Video tab, and click on 'Add Video Overlay' at the bottom. 
    • Select Image and browse to it. The Overlay Image should match the Video Size. For example, if your Video size is set to 720P, then your image should be 1280x720. This will need to be a .png with transparency.
