Hi guys!

I'm currently shooting a short film with a home DV camera, and I was wondering if I'd be able to somehow achieve the movie-type motion in the final film using After Effects. I'm not referring to anything color-related, but rather to how the camera, characters etc. in professional films seem to move in a less fluid way than in home videos. Is this due to a different frame rate?

Any help would be appreciated!
Aimee.

Here's a good article that gets into the details of what makes film look different from DV video, and what you can do to tweak it:

Most professionals make smooth moves that can also be attributed to the mounting of the camera. Steady Cam, motion control rigs, jib arms and even tripods are used. Of course the skills of the camera person also a key ingredient as well. :D

To add to what Tom said, in film, zooming is used more more infrequently, if at all. When the camera needs to get closer, it's moved closer, it's not zoomed. Just another thing to consider.
