Have never used Twixtor, but an obvious difference is that most slow-motion splash videos have the camera looking at glass straight from the side, while you are shooting at a steep downward angle. And the lighting is poor. And background color is not that dissimilar from the splashing water. The glass and the water look the same to the camera/Twixtor. For instance when the rising water meets the stainless bar in background, things get a little warped because the water is the same color as the background! You need some contrast and better lighting.

And with the water rising basically towards the lens, hard for the software to calculate the motion. Shooting from the side, the background is static and only the water is moving, so software can easily determine what is moving and what's not. When looking down on the water...well, the camera doesn't have a 3D sensor to measure distance of water to lens so it doesn't know what it is seeing.

Also, use a tripod. If the camera is moving, makes it harder to calculate smooth motion of subject matter.

Steps for success:

1. Camera position
2. Lighting
3. Tripod

One more thing, I'm sure there are settings in Twixtor that can be tweaked. Try the other steps for starters, then tweak as needed to get good results in Twixtor. But you have to start with better footage.

Your camera quality and lighting on the prop matters when you try extreme slow motion video.
try a contrast background with a side angle. (make sure your object and your background should separate from each other in colors, contrast and depth).
don't apply twixtor slowmotion value on any random frame. ones you done with the shoot check the quality of the drops on real time play and put the values on the frame where your quality of the drop is visible.
Hope this works.
