Speed Ramping & Frames Per Second
on Sep 2, 2011 at 4:03:08 pm

I had a quick question for everyone. I want shoot a video in 1080p but keep it at 24fps for the cinematic quality look, but I want to speed ramp / slow mo in the video. Does shooting at 1080p at 24 or 30 fps make a major difference in post when using Twixtor? Or is it better to shoot in 720p at 60 fps to get the smooth slow motion? Also, does it make much of a difference / does it look different if you shoot in 24fps out of the camera vs. if you shot in 30fps or 60fps and in post brought it down to 24fps?

Best bet, if the look is slow enough for what you want, shoot 720/60p and conform the files to 24fps. Don't have to deal with Twixtor/rendering anything at that point.

If you want the slow footage to play at normal speed, I believe it is a speed ramp of 250% on the conformed clip will get you back to normal-ish speed.

shooting at 30fps will give you a lot more freedom when editing.

I agree with above poster. unless you're planning for your video to be seen on theater, go 720/60fps, you won't regret it.
