    =NOT A TEACHER=

    Hello,

    Technically the effect opposite to "slow motion" is called "time-lapse" and is usually achieved by filming (or photographing) a scene at a lower framerate than it is planned to be played back. When played, the motion appears proportionally faster than it is in reality.

    I'm not sure if that's exactly what you meant in your post.

    Best regards,
    Tomasz

    "Fast forward" is what is used to move a videotape or DVR recording through time quickly.
