Slow Motion in Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5

August 4, 2011 by The Man

They say “motion is captured in the camera” and this is especially true for slow motion.

This is a quick, dirty and unscientific look and the new Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5s retiming.

The clip is a 5 second shot that I knew would not slow down well despite being shot on a Canon 7D at 720p 60fps.

All the clips were retimed to 10%.

If you want to see what the Canon 7D at 60fps can do have a look at this sadly it uses a plugin in FCP which is not yet available for FCP X.

The Motion 5 frame blending settings were:

Motion-Blur Blending
