My vidoe is really fast and I would want to slow it down

asked in CSC 150 January201920 by (1 point)

I was having the same problem and the speed slider at the top of the screen wasn't helping.

In the netlogo interface tab, select settings and slow down the frame rate.

Thank you!


I'm afraid that won't affect the frame rate of the video that's created using the vid extension -- that just affects how quickly NetLogo displays things when you have the speed-slider in the middle position.

To slow it down, you can either:

a) change your commands to make the turtles move slower, etc., or...
b) record repeated repeated/duplicate frames.

Choice a is probably harder, but has the possibility of making the video smoother as well as faster.

Choice b is quite easy! Everywhere in your code where you wrote


change it to

  repeat 10 [ vid:record-view ]

The exported video should now be 10 times slower, since it will now show the same repeated image for 10 whole frames each time...

P.S. if you've already created the video, and want to edit it, take a look at my answer to this other question here: http://lovelace.augustana.edu/q2a/index.php/2553/how-can-we-make-a-video-faster
