Is there away of making a clip look like its been shot at a high shutter speed to create that staccato type look.

In Motion or After Effects?

whilst looking for an example online to show you I came across another thread Creative Cow thread which concluded that it probably cannot be done very well in post.

A high shutter speed 1/200th sec upwards gives footage a very particular look. Ideally suited to filming moving cars / high speed stuff where you want to get across 'speed' in a stylistic way.

It is a different effect to shooting at a low frame rate,

Well.. as far as I know the picture is just much more contrasted with no "blurs" on the edge of moving objects.. May be I'm missing something

I'm not sure I understand what you want but I think it is possiable if the clip is long enough that you can speed it up and add an echo effect. But the clip would have to be way long to speed it up enough.

Think of the film 28 days Later or if you are UK based and a petrolhead the BBC programme Top Gear. They use it extensively when reviewing cars and want to get across speed,


I think the problem lies in the fact that the original footage shot at a 'normal' shutter speed will already have some blur on them which cannot be removed

As you have concluded, umm, no.

Imagine you have a photo assignment at the Olympic trials. You have been told to shoot still images of a gymnast doing backflips and your camera is shooting at 1/15th of a second to capture his or her movements as elegant motion blur which is much cooler than simulating it in Photoshop.

You have delivered your shots and the Olympic trials are complete. Now your idiot art director comes in and asks you to turn those beautifully languid images into crystal clear, needle sharp shots that could only have been captured with a strobe at 1/10,000 second.

I've seen the shows.. and understand.. You just need to put the picture more in contrast.
I know for sure there are plugins that can help (it saved my ass in a job) but I can't recall now the name of the plugin I used.
Try looking for "sharpen plugin"
You will also need to play around with contrast settings etc..
It works quite well but obviously can't do miracles. The final picture could have a little "cartoon" effect (the plugin detects edges, then sharpens them, then blurs out the noise that inevitaably is created and this last procedure also deletes some color shades in the picture)

Enhancer looks interesting, does anyone have experience of this filter.
Is it as good as says it is?
Would be interesting if anyone has experience of it enhancing good quality SD, enhancing not enlarging.
