Progressive slow down in motion, how is it obtained?

Hi, one of the tools more interesting for me -in an aestethic sense- is the progressive slow motion in an action, making a continous transition from normal motion to slow motion, perhaps with a final action freezed.

How is it obtained? What software ? Is it possible with FCS ?

Kind regards,

Hugo

I think it is called time remapping . I do it in Vegas. The movie 300 has alot of that effect in it.

Time remapping is correct, and yes you can do it in Final Cut or in AE.

I am very interested in this too. I work in Premiere Pro 1.5. As far as I know, I think it cannot progressively slow things down.

Somebody please correct me if I am wrong.

What I have done in the past to achieve this is slow down the speed of a clip by 5 percent, go forward 5 frames and cut the clip. Then repeat this every 5 frames until I am where I want to be visually. I have only gone down to 50 percent because anything beyond that, in my opinion, is too blurry. The results are a little choppy, but sometines that choppiness looks good with certain music.

That's how I do it in Premiere Pro. And I am sure you can pretty much do the same in any pro program. Maybe somebody makes a plugin that will do this without all the hassel.

Many thanks for the replies. Yes, I had in mind the movie "300", one where this effect is applied.

This transition from normal action to slow action in a continuous manner is very interesting for me. A type of control over time, where special moments begin to be seen in detail. I think our mind function in a similar way, with a non linear time.
Kind regards,
Daniel
