Opinion needed on SlowMotion/Time Twisting plugins...
Has any one an opinion about the "best" plugin(s) to use witin Premiere Pro ?
For instance has anyone tried Twixtor ? Will it support the CFHD AVIs and render them nicely ?

Or any alternative that some one has experienced ??

Michael Stewart August 31st, 2005 09:17 PM

I've tried them all, twixtor works the best! Here is an example

Thanks, mickael
very nice and moving clip, indeed.

Could you tell me what was the original footage ( Camcorder and definition ..)
Apparently you edited on a Mac ?? with which NLE ??

Thanks again

No I'm a diehard PC guy, especially since cineform is the best! The one of the girl in front of the window, the fountain and umbrellas, and the wagon are twixtor material, I forgot to mention that. It was shot/edited in HDV 1080i(FX1), of course it is hard to tell when compressed, I just used quicktime because it had the nicer encoding look over the windows media version.

Damn you are good with that stabilizer.

Michael Stewart September 1st, 2005 08:44 PM

Thanks Steve

yes indeed you are.
Thanks for all.

Thanks Pierre, I've tried all the slow motion plugins, Twixtor is the easiest and the best for quality (better than Furnace,Retimer or Boris Continuum

Very nice video

Steve Crisdale September 2nd, 2005 08:25 PM

This clip should be shown to all those wondering how good HDV is for wedding video!!

So much in it that\'s educational for those wondering about editing, etc, etc.

I\'d imagine the Bride was stoked to get such quality...

Michael Stewart September 2nd, 2005 11:10 PM

They were blown away when they saw it on my 34" HDTV, the colors are stunning! Thanks for the comments.

Michael, very nice work and I agree with the poster above regarding this making a good example of the benefits of HDV for wedding and event folks. I noticed some black letterboxing that is a distraction though. We are waging a big debate over at the Canopus forum regarding the issue of just offering and having the ability to produce 16:9 and HDV as an option and I would love to point some of the old "I will never change" grumpier old men to this work. Thanks for posting it and one last question...do you use the pro version?

Michael Stewart September 4th, 2005 01:01 AM

It is a distraction, it was not in the one I gave to the bride and groom, I used the twixtor pro, but you don\'t need it, standard works just perfect. Once I started working in 16:9, I never wanted to see 4:3 again! Thanks


Anders Lilkaer September 29th, 2005 07:47 AM

Michael, would you be nice to explain the procedure of which you are using when creating slow motion with Reelsmart Twixtor?. I\'ve just got my hands on the 4.5 demo version, but I find it difficult to produce the slow motion without the motives are distorted somehow - it\'s like the edges of the moving particles are waving... let me post a sample as soon as possible, then you can maybe comment on that!

Thanks in advance,
Anders Lilkaer

Michael Stewart September 30th, 2005 04:46 PM

No problem, it is pretty straight forward, I will post the procedure this weekend, are you using After Effects?
