Re: One Summer Evening with the FS700

I think in most cases the time limit will be far more favorable to the work in post that twixtor requires. More likely you will find you rarely need up to the full limit since things you want to see in slow motion tend to happen quite quickly and you will want to keep down your buffer offload times.

I don't have the FS700 (yet), but Alister Chapman confirmed this on the same question when I asked it before. So the answer is yes.

FS700
Pro: No interpolated edge artifacts, no extra hours of plugin tweaking and rendering to get an inferior result, can playback on set to see and evaluate footage
Con: Costs more than twixtor, burst time limits


There is no replacement for actually shooting high framerates.
These are not the only reasons to shoot high framerates.
Some organic movements are very hard to interpolate; the software just doesn't know how something like different hairs of a longhaired girl running towards the camera on a windy day move.
I tried this in december: most of the time it looks weird and fake. Only in one shot it was ok.
(And not thanks to Twixtor, but the standard options in AE.)

Or how thrown water splashed as it 'explodes' on a detailed object: it just yields distorted footage. (Which can be funny... lol)

Shooting high framerates wins in my opinion as well.
