I have a gig coming up where I have to have 3 cameras shooting a test on a 10 inch LNG hose disconnect system dropping 45 foot to the water. Client wants 5 tests filmed all in slow motion with 3 different views, one from 85' straight up
I will run 3 EX1s shooting 720/30 @ 60fps which is the slowest settings I can get from the ex1, so, my question is this, any ideas on how I might "
tweek" something to get a better shot beside what I do in edit?
I agree with Noah. I've had some pretty good results with his latter suggestion. Couldn't afford to rent the phantom or RED. Here is a result of shooting at 720p30 overcranked to 60fps.
This was shot with the EX3. Post done in After Effects with ReVisionFX's Twixtor Pro plug-in. The first clip was slowed to 5% of original then ramped to 100% which was actually 50% of real time. The second clip was sped up to 100% real time, then ramped in Twixtor to 5%, then ramped back up to 100% real time.
The results were decent. Having said that, people dealing in video can tell the difference but those subtleties would go unnoticed to the untrained eye. Before shooting I would do tests as shutter speed, aperture, and other factors will affect your end result.
You will get an stunning slow mow (no audio) shooting p24 or p30 over-cranked to p60.
If you slow that down in Compressor (Frame Control ON. Speed 50%, Rate Conversion BETTER or BEST, make a test) you will get your picture played at 20 or 25% of RT.
