Need to slow down footage without jerky motion?
If you want a slow motion clip, it’s best to film at a high frame rate. But when that’s not possible, DaVinci Resolve has a feature to help smooth out footage.
It’s called Optical Flow. It creates new frames between existing frames by trying to figure out the motion of your footage.
It does a great job in a lot of situations, and you can adjust a few settings to get even better results.
In this video from Team 2 Films, you’ll learn about:
- Changing speed of a clip
- Enabling Optical Flow
- Adjusting motion estimation settings
- When to use Optical Flow
