Rodriguez slo-mo

This is how Robert Rodreguiez got 60p from 60i for slo-mo. It is from an article entitled "The man who hates film" at (

gI used the Sony cameras, and I didn't change the stop and ended up with 60 frames turned into slow motion. We didn't boost lighting or go with a different stop or anything. We just had to do some work in post, but nothing too complicated. We shot at 60i, captured each field to Targa files, and then output one Targa to one frame, which slowed the image down and gave us the equivalent of overcranking. And besides, by now, these cameras are starting to come with variable frame rates, and they'll only get better.h

yup. an oldie but goodie.

rip out some line doubled targas and then reimport at regular frame rate. problem with dv is that it's extremely soft, but in practice for these types of shots, it's not a bad thing.
