how to fix video speed/shutter
on Jan 31, 2012 at 1:36:06 am

i shot a wedding a few weeks ago things went well only issue is there wasnt enough light in the room so i increased my shutter to lighten up the video now we all know this slows the video a little bit, is there a way of fixing this within final cut pro so i get a normal smoother speed?

Thank you

No. Next time use an on camera light to increase exposure.

[King Law] "...i increased my shutter to lighten up the video now we all know this slows the video a little bit..."

Incorrect. Adjusting the shutter speed allows light to be exposed to the camera sensor for a longer period of time. This does lighten up the video but it also increases motion blur.

It does absolutely nothing to affect the frame rate, which is the primary determinant of the speed of motion. If you shoot at a high frame rate and play back at a normal frame rate, the motion looks slow.

If you cut back the shutter speed, it gives you more exposure and increases motion blur. That's it.

When you shoot with a lower shutter speed, just like film, always use a tripod. Keep pan and zooms to a bare minimum.
