I want to experiment with slowed down footage and I see several ways in doing that with my current set-up.
I have the following hardware/software at my disposal:
After Effects CS5.5, Twixtor Pro, Canon 550D (capable of shooting 50fps 1280x720 footage)
I can think of several ways to slow-down my 50fps footage, I'm interested to hear what the most effective way to go is in terms of quality and what the best way is to slow my footage down as much as possible.
The methods I could think of are written down below.
- Interpret the footage in CS5.5 as 25fps or lower. 18fps being the minimum, stutter is noticeable below that.
- Interpret as 50fps and then do a time-remapping to slow down the footage. Add frame blending to compensate for any stutter.
- Interpret as 50fps and use Twixtor Pro to slow down the footage.
