Oliver Spear - 7 months old - Learning to Swim.
All filmed on a 7D @ 720p50 and then conformed to 25p. I used Twixtor for the ultra slowmo and from memory I used 1/400 shutter speed to keep the images nice and clean so limiting the motion blur. Twixtor is pretty good, but it does have its limitations and it really, really hates any object moving too fast.

While Twixtor will not replace a high speed camera, I've found it works well if you shoot for it. How did you apply it? The plug in in AE or some NLE, and did you conform to 25p after Twixtor or before? There are plenty of blogs saying the AE plug in works the best. I usually choose a shutter speed that's a multiple of the fps you want the effect. So it does take a bit of preplanning. Anyhow, enjoy fatherhood!

I used the FCP plugin and I'd conformed to 25p before I used Twixtor. To be honest I'd never even thought about trying it the other way around, but I'll give it a go. I've got AE CS6 now so I could give that a try now too.
