Wavy Gravy – Who Needs Twixtor? 2000 FPS+ With Apple Motion

Using a Canon 7D at 59.94 frames/second then timed in Apple Motion using Optical flow. No rotoscoping or masking. The slowest footage was slowed down to about 2% or 3% speed.

Thanks to Matt Wiebe for grinding it out that day. He can do flippier tricks, but I needed straight airs to avoid the wavy gravy. :)

I have nothing against Twixtor, just can’t afford it. Thank you to CrumplePop for the Motion Tutorial.

    Well Done, this Looks almost Perfect with just a little Bit of artifacts but perfectly Filmed though.
    I have also tried my luck with the 7D and some confetti Action but wasn’t that pleased with the resulting artifacts.
    Good Job

      Thanks Janik! I think a couple times I had trees or power lines in the BG and they didnt help!! I found static motion through the air turned out best. I have some kickflips etc that actually look pretty wonky…they never made the cut!

    Wow! That was fun! This looks really awesome.

    I can’t believe the power that a single human being with vision has nowadays with the help of DSLR and home edit systems! The power to entertain! ..and I don’t even like skateboarding!!!

    good job!
