Can't find old tutorial
on Sep 2, 2010 at 4:55:44 pm

I recall a tutorial here that dealt with motion and/or time remapping. The comp in use had a blue background and used the Cow logo. Part of it addressed a shearing artifact and how to correct for that.

I'm doing some time remapping with high shutter speed footage and getting bad ghosting. That old tutorial came to mind and I think some of the principles in it may help. But I don't remember what it was called, and can't seem to find it.

Any help?

Oooh, when I hear the terms "high shutter speed" and "time remapping" in the same breath, a BIG red flag goes up. Are you by any chance trying to achieve slow motion? If so, you went about it the wrong way.

The footage was given to me. And if this won't work, I'll just tell them to reshoot.

Andrew Kramers "Frame Rate Converter" Tutorial is what you remember.

Yep, that was it. Thanks.

Glad to hear they can reshoot. The trick to slo-mo, as I'm sure you're aware, is to shoot at a high frame rate, and play back at a lower frame rate.

If you work in a 23.976 fps comp, footage shot at 59.94 fps automatically will be 2 1/2 times slower when conformed to 23.976 in AE, no further massaging necessary. It'll look great.

So I guess the question is, "How slow do you want this slo-mo to be?"

Do you seek super slo-mo, like seeing a tight shot of an apple as a bullet flies through it?
Do you seek mild slo-mo, like overcranking film, the process of which is described above?

It'll make a difference in your planning. Just jumping into the deep end of the pool leads to unsatisfactory, band-aid solutions and unsatisfactory results.
