The dynamics of the stone hitting the water surface, the water ripples and splashes, all that stuff can't be captured at standard speed and then slowed down effectively. On the other hand, if you overcrank you actually capture more "events", events that you can watch later at slower speed.

Hope this makes sense :)

Hey Paolo,

it's been a few years but i use to play around with Storm Edit which was bundled with the dv storm I. if i recall, it had a slo mo filter, very simple to apply, i remember it working pretty good, i assumed such filters were widespread. guess not.

I'm not familiar with Storm Edit but both FCP and AfterEffect have a way of extending the speed of a clip by any arbitrary value. Both have frame blending capabilities and they do a good job. I used them to create some nice, romantic look on some scenes, it's a nice way of "cheating" because of the digital flexibility. It just not real slomo :)
It all depends on the scene. Some scenes will work perfectly in full HD res. with digital speed stretch. Think of a reaction shot of a person turning back. Now think of people seating at a table, a gangster opens fire with a machine gun. Squibs splat blood around, fragments of china, food and broken glasses go flying around. That's something you would like to shoot with true slomo.

Importing the 480p 60fps into FCP?

Trying not to add clutter to the threads, so I'm posting here.

Is there a logical way to take the SD-HDV 480p 60fps footage from the JVC HD100/110 into FCP Studio? I talked to Focusenhancements and they say that their hard drive HD-100 series will record the 480p 60fps HDV signal in a Mt2 file. Ok assuming that is correct (???) anyone done the importation of 60fps HDV into FCP studio? I imagine that FCP Studio 1 (2??) still doesn't see Mt2 natively yet so I would need to import the MT2 file into a converter and export it as 720p DVCPROHD 60p or some other quicktime file format that FCP could recognize. That program being Lumiere or HDVxDV or some other programs out there? (cheap or free is prefered of course)
