There’s something about Slow Motion

I have been finding all these great videos in slow motion and high definition while browsing vimeo.com– the site for the HD fan and better quality videos than, say, YouTube.

The Slow Mo vids are a real feast for your eyes.

Equally interesting are the technical conversations that unfold in the comments section.

Do you want to know what twixtor is? do you want to know what camera speed was used?

Just read the comments, or even better, ask a question.

Most video creators will answer them, if you know what you are talking about.

Just keep it simple.

    this is some of the best twixtor footage iv’e ever seen. Can I ask what settings you used in twixtor?
  • Rickard Bengtssonplus 5 months ago
    I used motion blended weights and Inverse with smart blend mostly. Sometimes I had forward.
    Bg sensitivity was set from around 80-100 depending on the clip and same with the speed.
    Slowest speed was 2% and highest around 20.

    Hey mate, were you shooting at 30p or 60p? I’m assuming a better result at 60, but but if this was done at anything under 30 I’m impressed.
  • Rickard Bengtssonplus 5 months ago
    Yep shot at 60.
    The more frames you can get out of the camera the smoother the slow motion will be.

    Hey if you don’t mind me asking.
    How did you go about doing the sequences where it started off normal speed then swapped to slo mo?
    Did you just trim the start and add twixtor to the rest of the clip, and join them together again?
    Sorry I’m a bit of a noob..
  • Rickard Bengtsson plus 5 months ago
    Twixtor is added to the entire clip.
    For normal speed I just set twixtor to around 200% (interpert footage as 23,976 before adding twixtor) then keyframed it and set it to something low like 5% when I wanted slowmtion.

Even though slow motion provides a different effect- just like 3D does- not everyone has the money to buy one of these cameras.

So, if slow motion technology sounds too complicated or expensive to you…

you still can get creative.
