Hello,

I'm new to this forum and FCP and I hope someone can help me with my project.

I have 360 single photos of a desk. All photos animated together "moves" the camera around the desk one time and I can seamlessly loop it.

What I want to achieve is to slow down the video to around 10% of the speed so that the desk rotates very slowly and I can show a call-out about a feature. Then I want to go back to normal speed and slow it down on the next feature to show a call-out again.

I hope this is clear and I want to know if this is possible with FCP. Can you please advice me what should I do in FCP? I created different clips out if these 360 photos, for example with 60fps making each photo 2 frames long. This results in an 12-second long clip. I played around with fps in the project settings and also with the individual frames, but I always loose the "fluid animation" of the desk as soon as I slow down the clip too much.

What can I do?
Should I use a plug-in like Twixtor or is it possible to do some tasks to get a clip with 240fps, so that a smooth slo-mo is possible?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
Simon Wiedemann

You could export it at the 12 second length then reimport and slow it down with optical flow. See what that looks like. The trick to making these things work is shoot at the maximum frame rate you want to use so you have plenty of real frames to show.

Simon,

Try to make a panorama out of the stills.
Then animate the still at any speed you want.
