50fps to smooth semi slow motion
on May 21, 2012 at 8:51:19 pm

Hi there.

Just shot a short scene on a canon dslr at 50fps 720p and I want to get a slight (music video) slow motion. Should I just convert this now to pro res and slow in final cut? Will that give me smooth enough slow-mo or should I conform this to 25fps (matching rest of time line) and then adjust speed in fcp to get desired results?

Thanks, E

Slowing it in FCP won't make it smooth. You need to CONFORM with Cinema TOols:

Ok, thanks for that, I will do that now after I convert them.

One other thing. Most of my time line is set to 1080 while the footage that will be slowed is at 720. When converting them should I scale them up of just do that myself in the edit?

Thanks, E

If you are scaling then it might be better to use Compressor. It will create a new file (unlike Cinema Tools) where you change the speed and do the scaling with frame controls on and scaling set to best.

Scaling in FCP is not as good.

720 to 1080 in FCP isn't bad. Not that big of an increase. I mix it a lot. Should be fine.

OK thanks guys.

I will try both to see if I notice any difference.

Cheers,
