How to make RED slow-mo ingest at regular speed
on Aug 10, 2011 at 7:51:38 pm

Hi,

We shot a bunch of slow motion stuff on the RED (60,90,100,120fps) and the director also wants it to play back at regular speed. Is there a trick to ingesting it or do I just have to speed the clip up in edit? Thanks

David

See this article.

I think you are pooched. There is no way to "convert it to real speed" without removing frames and making it look terribly off.

Sorry I don't have better news.

Really? no way to change the timebase?

You can try speeding it up, but I am not sure you'll like the results.

If you shot 120 then play the clip 5X faster for "realtime" and see what it looks like as a test.

You can't change footage that was shot in slo-mo to realtime-speed on ingest. It needs to happen by applying a speed change. I prefer to do it with round numbers. So if you're editing base is 24, then shoot at 48, 72, 96, etc. Numbers that 24 divide into evenly. Next, you're motion blur might feel off when doing this (depending on the look that you're going for). To add the right type of motion blur, I would suggest using Real Smart Motion Blur by RE: Vision Effects.

Same as if you shot film at 50fps, it will come in slow. That's what happens when you shoot high speed. Director should know this.... very basic.

I don't have any high-speed footage to test with right this moment, but in older versions of RedCine you could change the project rate for a given clip. IF you can still do this, try changing the project rate to whatever your high-speed rate is and see if that works. Same thing works for getting odd effects: shoot at 12fps and set project rate to 12fps - yields nifty blurry frames.

Peter Jackson is shooting The Hobbit at 48fps (I've heard). If so I'm pretty sure he's not watching the whole movie at half-speed. There's got to be a way.
