1. 60p to 24p super slow motion in After Effects CS3. This tutorial is so easy it's ridiculous.

Please bestow a ♥ like or leave a ✉ comment if you have questions!

Transform your 60p footage from your 7D, HVX200, Panasonic GH-1 (or what have you), and create a 120FPS effect! This is accomplished using Frame Blending and Motion Blur inside of After Effects. Keep in mind this will likely cause aliasing and artifacts in your footage since AE will be 'guessing' every other frame.

To calculate the "Stretch Factor" for After Effects (as in this tutorial), just multiply the ORIGINAL footage times 2, divided by your OUTPUT frame rate. For example:

ORIGINAL frame rate * 2 / OUTPUT * 100 = percentage of stretch. In this tutorial example,

59.94
times
2
divided by
23.976
equals
5

The quotient (5) is your stretch factor multiplied by 100 (two decimal places): 500% stretch factor.

Play around with different stretch factors such as 250%, 400%, or maybe even 600%, depending on your footage. It is best to use whole numbers as mentioned. This way, After Effects can guess every other frame - not every 3 1/2 frames. The output tends to look better.

~----------------------------------------------------------------~
NTSC Scenario:
Project: 24p (23.976 fps)
Unedited footage: 60p (59.94 fps)
Desired output: 24p overcranked SUPER SLOW MOTION
Method: The method in the tutorial explains this scenario. (23.976 timeline, drop 60p footage in, set time stretch to 500%, export as 23.976 [24p])

Note: When I say 'forward slash for good quality' in the tutorial, I actually mean it will change the Frame Blending mode to Pixel Motion. Sorry for the confusion there.

2. Tutorial on how to use picture styles to increase the dynamic range of the Canon 7D / 5DMkII.

Custom picture styles are an amazing feature that almost compensate for the lack of a raw codec for video capture on the Canon DSLRS. The default picture styles on the camera are geard towards producing nice results out of the box but are not very good if you intend to do color correction and grading in postprocessing. This tutorial shows how to use custom picture styles that produce very flat, high dynamic range footage (similar to real film cameras).

The actual picture styles have been made by other people, and here are some references:
Super Flat, Genesis Panalog and Velvia:
cinema5d.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3401

If you have problems downloading them, you can get them from here in one package (crnkovic.org/video/picture_styles.zip). I do however recommend that you get them from the original sources and read the forum posts/blog posts associated with them.

The final example footage was shot handheld (Zacuto rapid fire + zfinder) at Skogskyrkogården cemetery in Stockholm. I scouted the place for a possible future shoot and the footage I shot was never meant for release - it did however come handy in this tutorial as it was all shot using the super flat picture style.

3. I was in Vancouver for a few days and spent some time testing out the video mode of my 7d. All random stuff, no theme or story; just cut to music.

Equipment used: 7D w/ 17-55mm 2.8IS, Glidecam HD-2000, and.......rollerblades :)

Color Correction was done in Color and I used the "super-flat" custom profile to help increase the dynamic range for post. 100% 720p 60 conformed to 24p.

I included a bunch of clips featuring moire to demonstrate what you can/can't get away with when shooting deep focus shots. Thanks for watching!

4. Spent about an hour driving around to some random locations with a friend in an effort to understand the mechanics of operating my camera in the dark. Learned a lot from it.

Shown in the video is my friend Adam who let me film him walking around etc.. Thanks dude!

All unrehearsed guerrilla style improv shots of me just testing ISO and shutter speeds etc.. and trying to achieve a grungy sci-fi look for a short film that I'm hoping to start soon.

Equipment: 7D, 17-55mm 2.8IS, Handheld Glidecam HD-2000, Rollerblades, and a minidisc condenser microphone plugged directly into the camera to see how well it would sound

1080p 24fps with one shot in there as 720p 60

Music was quickly put together in GarageBand

# Good test vids
