Playing with the speed of footage can be a lot of fun. In our last movie we took a look at over cranked footage and used techniques to slow it down. Here we’ll push the envelope even further and show you dramatic slow motion. I’ll demonstrate by using a shot that is over-cranked at 59.94. I think you’ll be excited with the results. This is just one more trick to slowing down your footage.
Changing the Speed of Video - Retiming Footage: Slow Motion
To learn more, I’ve created an exciting course called Repairing and Enhancing Video with Lynda.com.
Whether you want to fix a problem in post or simply give your video more style, this course will help everyone from motion graphics designers to video editors improve their footage. Rich Harrington uses Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, and even Illustrator to correct problems you'd encounter in real-world projects, like lens distortion, camera shake, noise and grain, and overblown exposure. Plus, you'll learn advanced techniques for speeding up or slowing down your video, rotoscoping footage, and using the numerous creative color and texture effects in Photoshop and After Effects. If your footage has ever needed some extra attention, this course is for you.
Topics in this course include:
- Reviewing the retoucher's toolbox
- Stabilizing footage
- Fixing alignment
- Retiming footage
- Removing lens distortion
- Using rotoscoping to enhance footage
- Recovering exposure
- Color grading with Photoshop
- Converting to black and white
- Creating a film or painterly look
- Adding depth of field
