Script for deleting frames
on Jan 25, 2013 at 11:57:08 pm

I want to delete every second frame of my clip to to make it look more like a stop motion, can anyone recommend a script for Final Cut or an application?

I'm not going to do it frame by frame, that will be to many hours.

See that the question has been post earlier about a year ago without finding any simple solution, hope that something has been developed in the meantime.

Thanx
Daniel

Two easy solutions:
- Speed up the footage 200% (uncheck "Frame blending"), nest the clip and slow it down 50%, UNCHECKING the "Frame Blending" (important).
- Use the "Strobe" Filter.

Thanx for the info Rafael, tried it and it works but still have to admit that it's not 100% doing what I'm looking for, want it's still to "smooth", even if I set the Strobe rate at 60. Are looking for something that removes the frames. Any idea?

I don't catch it.
FC play at standard time-bases.
If you just eliminate frames, the movie will speed up when played at the standard time-base.
If you wan't the movie to play at normal speed but looks like a stop-motion movie, you need to eliminate frames but also to repeat the previous frames to feel the place of those eliminated.

Speeding up the movie and slowing it down the same amount (keeping "Frame blending" unchecked), will do that. You may need to slow it down more.

Slowing it down even more helps, but I ended up at a solution where I make freeze frames every 15th frame, resulting in big "jumps" in the film, then extending the duration of each frame. It's time consuming, but is closer to the effect I'm looking for.

This is what I'm trying to achieve, but I'm not really able to find a good workflow for it:

That has been shoot with low shutter speed.
You can get that with some strobe and adding motion blur, or with something like the Sapphire "Time Average".

Actually I see that the strobe effect is all what I need, it for me resembles the stop motion effect perfectly.

Thanx for all info Rafael
