Bed jumping.. slow-mo now included

Thanks to heathenx for pointing out that I could achieve slow motion on a single clip by adding a speed generator effect to it, setting an IPO curve for the speed gen effect and making sure the ‘use ipo as velocity’ button was enabled. It all sounds so logical to me now, but I was so befuddled and frustrated last night trying to achieve it. Isn’t that always the way? Things look impossible, and then you find out they’re much easier than you thought. That concept seems to pervade my life. :)

Anyway, I’ve replaced the original video with this one, slow-mo effect included.  Thanks heathenx, you’re a smart guy.. despite what everyone says.

  1. err.. exciting?.. titillating maybe.. a little bizarre too. ;)

    I didn’t realize that GREYC had other tools. I just found out about their noise reduction plugin for the Gimp the other day. I was quite pleased with the results I got from it.

  2. Ok… ignore the darn content darn you!

    The content is cheesy – but what you are seeing is motion estimation as opposed to simply staggering frames.

    It is crude, but the beginning of far more useful tools if people tell David that sophisticated motion estimation tools are important.

    PS: GREYCstoration should only be used on the command line – you miss far too much of its power from within GIMP. Trust me on that one. Also, you could iterate over an entire image sequence for those low light situations, etc.

  3. Ahh.. I see. But it’s difficult to notice the effect with all that content! :)

    Actually that twixtor link was really neat. To be able to work towards something like that would be so useful.

    I’ll have to give GREYCstoration a try from the command line. The last time I had actually used noise reduction was by using NoiseNinja under wine.. I hadn’t had a need for it in a while.. just because I don’t photograph things as much as I use to. :(

    I never thought of using it on a series of images from a video. That could be very useful. Thanks.
