Adobe Premiere CS4 Slow Motion
I've been doing my slow motion in After Effects CS4 but today I actually found a way to do it easy and with good results in Premiere CS4. I search the forum and I don't think anyone have posted this.
- Import a 50i clip into Premiere CS4
- Drag it to the timeline
- Right-click the clip and choose "nest"
- Find "timewarp" and drag that to the clip
- Choose "whole frames" and leave "speed" on "50"
There is also other settings you can play with.
The reason you "nest" the clip even if it's only one clip is that Premiere CS4 has a bug with timewarp. Actually I haven't checked if there's an update but on the blog I found this info on they didn't know either. If you don't nest your clip it will either look distorted or be pitch black.
For some reason I have to double the lenght of the part I want to slowmo or it will be "50% shorter".
No big deal but remember to do it BEFORE nesting.
If someone can try this and get back to me here about the bugs I've told you about I'd be really thankful.
I will record with different shutter settings and post some clips soon.
Hope some of you find this helpful/interesting!
Later guys and gals,

Nevermind BUG2: It's not a bug. Plugins/effects are not allowed to change length/duration of a clip so you have to double/triple the length before nesting. I haven't tried but maybe you also can just copy/paste 3 times and drag that to a new sequence. Might work as well.
