Working SlowMo into a Doc - Production and Post
I'm gonna be shooting a doc quite soon and I wanted to have the flexibility in post to change speed and not have to make the decision the split second before I hit record. It's gonna be very run and gun, one shot, one chance kinda stuff.
My first question is if I shoot the whole thing at 100fps to finish as 25, to what degree will the shutter angle show?
That it so say to avoid loosing the look of natural 180deg motion blur.
When I shoot 60i (the post cheat) slow mo on my C100 it looks horrible unless its speed is set to the intended 40%. But I've been working some grades on 180fps Dragon footage and when I speed that up to give me normal motion it looks totally fine, none of that strange "The Hobbit 48fps, looking at the screen for more than 30 seconds makes me hallucinate" nonsense.
I'm gonna shoot it on an Amira, so switching frame rates is very easy, I just wanted to see if I could make the shoot even easier!
Thanks in advance
