Made Slow Motion Footage With Twixtor

"For fast-acting relief, try slowing down."
Lily Tomlin

After my friend Ryan sent me an article about creating super slow motion footage with a plug-in called
Twixtor, I decided I wanted to try it out. Twixtor figures out the appropriate frame range to speed up or slow down video footage and intelligently interpolates the frames needed to make the motion look smooth. The demos I had seen of it looked really cool, and the results were impressive.

I took some footage of some movement outside and imported it into my computer. I used our Canon T2i and filmed 720p at 60 frames per second.

Before getting started, I watched this tutorial from the makers of the plug-in on how to use it.

For my slowed down video, I keyed certain sections to slow down 6%, which would be the equivalent of 1000 frames per second.

This is awesome for people like me that can't afford to buy something like a
Phantom camera. I'm looking forward to using it a little more in the future, and I'm sure there are better settings that will improve the results. I love using software that I can experiment with. It's definitely a very good tool for future filmmaking projects. I can't wait!
