Maybe your mustache becomes real
Camcorder records in AVCHD and that’s the raw footage I’m working with, directly in AE. After footage corrections I render the footage (as we call it here “prerender”). For prerenders I use image sequences now (PNG/JPG, depends on the length), when I came to VH I used QT.
But speaking about fps and slow-motion, twixtor is my choice, I used it once and it can do brilliant things even with 50fps.
I don’t know right now how can you make a 150fps file from this, maybe my english is not so good to understand (yet :D) but if you feel for experimentation I can drop here some raw footage and you can check in AE how it works.
Totally sweet, looks great on my desktop. Thanks!
Are you sure it’s not 50i… i.e. 50 interlaced frames?
Yes I’m sure, my camcorder records in 25fps interlaced mode with different quality settings or in 50fps progressive which is the reason I have chosen this camcorder. It can also record 3D in 50i, but I don’t have the lens. AE recognizes both 25i and 50p correctly. I don’t know right now what do you mean by QT, but if quick time, I don’t work with it.
I don’t believe that promoting only your own work with a referral link may lead to this. There are some VH authors who are very popular on youtube, I mean like millions of views and tens of thousands of followers, referral links everywhere and those channels are alive. If this was true, they would be probably gone long time ago.
50fps progressive = 25fps 2xslo-mo. I guess Ae brings it in as 25fps footage, but it’s slow-motion, right? Exactly the same as overcranking a film movie camera.
Nope, when importing 50fps footage to 25fps comp, I remember that the speed is the same, AE just skips every second frame. If you want to make it slow motion use time stretch set to 200%.
In my last project (which was 25fps), I used time remapping and 50fps footage was the source, result was far better than when the source was 25fps
And frankly, unless you’re using pre-renders, you can render an Ae project out at any frame rate you like.
I did this few times and it’s true. But one question came up to my mind. What about keyframes, when project is based on audio and there are some critical moments controlled by keyframes. For example two elements are going to cross each other and at the moment when they touch, another element shows up just for one keyframe and this all is also connected to some relative point in music. And let’s say, when project is done in 25fps, one second has 25 keyframes. But someone wants to render it out in 29.97 fps, so you have to change project’s fps settings. How does AE deal with that? Does it slightly move the keyframes? I believe there may be some very small changes in the result. I have to try this in AE.
Back to topic – Almost all my animations were made in 29.97fps. When I use footage recorded with my camcorder (like last eye template) I shoot in 50fps progressive, also import this footage to after effects but the result is 25fps. But I have decided to continue with 25fps only.
I liked that white version with the girl below me.
