Slow motion has long been one of the coolest( and overused) impacts in video. The technique was once exclusive to thought, expensive cameras, but as portable device engineering improves, slo-mo has become better and better. Whether you want to emphasize a cinematic minute or prolong the shame of a friend you recorded under a compromising situation, slo-mo is a great tool that you should learn to wield.
How It Works
To get the most out of slow motion, it helps to understand the basics. Let’s start with the very concept of video itself.
Video is just a series of still portrait( each one is a “frame” ), displayed in quick enough succession that it makes the misconception of gesture. Most video you insure on digital devices plays at 30 frames per second. Ultimately, you want your slo-mo clips to play back at 30 fps as well so that it’s the same chassis pace as regular , non-slo-mo footage.
However, to slow down a video and still have it look smooth without compromising the quality, you have to record at a higher frame rate, then play it back at the normal 30 fps. For lesson, to play back video at half hastened, you would record at 60 fps or more.
