Being the big super slow-motion fans that we are, last week we went over the several solutions that are there out there to make some good super-slow motion. We began with Cameras that are good to do it. In this post, we’ll take a look at Software.
You see, even if you don’t have a camera that will allow you to shoot at 1,000 frames per second, you will still be able to mimic how that will look like with a few software programs. And it is less expensive that most slow-motion cameras, so let’s see:
The king of it all is Twixtor. It is one of the most used plugins for doing slow motion and does a brilliant job at it. Take a look at one example:
Pretty cool, huh?
Now, Twixtor is not a software program per se, more actually a plugin that works with your editing/compositing software of choice, either After Effects, Premiere, Avid, etc.
And how to actually do it? Here’s a good tutorial:
The basic version of Twixtor costs $329.99.
Although Twixtor is the king, it doesn’t mean it’s the only player in town. Another good and cheaper option is Apple Motion – particularly the Optical Flow feature.
You can download it from the Mac App Store for $49.99.
If you want to do super slow-motion, you can look no further than this two pieces of sofware, these are the ones that matter. Both are great and will let you do some amazing work! Just make sure you show us then 😉
