If you have a powerful GPU card, you can test it out.
Not really, by todays standards (you wont impress anyone with an GTX960M or an GTX780Ti SSOC+GTX770 today anymore, Laptop, which gets more use is from 2015 and My workstation, which only does Heavy 3D-Render Stuff usually is even older. i dont upgrade Hardware that often, Next upgrade is planed in about 5 Years, that will have to do untill then). thats another nice thing about Twixtor, it runs fine on CPU only and does that pretty fast actually considering what its doing and the Hardware its running on.
 Thanks for the Link anyways. Will take a look at it.

@PaulBryanTV

I'm planning to buy a Chronos 1.4 black and white to video water sprays and similar.  I really enjoyed watching the video you posed at the beginning of this thread of water hitting a spoon and then spreading out.  What frame rate did you  use?

Thanks!

Did something a little different. Chronos 1.4 clip shot at 3,587 FPS in 800 X 480 and upscaled to 3200 X 1920 (forgot to do a Black Cal). It definitely won't be as clean, but I just thought I'd play around with it, and this is the best I could do. Additionally, I interpolated the frames 4X using DAIN to simulate 14,348 FPS. I find DAIN to be better at handling motion interpolation artifacts compared to Twixtor. Lens used was a Computar 8mm 1.8.

I believe it was at 1000fps.

I love slowmos of birds landing. I took some at 200fps with my GH5S and I'm hoping to get some even better things with my new Chronos :)

Nice job getting the dragon fly in focus. 👍 Do you remember what your aperture was?

For the dragonflies, I used the Computar zoom lens I got from Chronos set to almost maximum zoom. I can't remember the aperture setting but it was almost full open for most shots & I set the focus to about 4 ft.  Some of the shots I did just standing still with the camera recording as they were buzzing around waiting for one to fly through the field of view at the right distance to be in focus. It's hard to pan on a dragonfly because they zig zag so quickly but I was successful a few times using the laser gun sight attachment to follow the motion.  All that said, 99% of the video footage is unusable.

Yeah, I try to stop down the lens but only problem is sometimes the light is enough to compensate for that so I end up getting underexposed shots for some.

I was looking on my phone screen and I thought the shot at 44 seconds was in focus. But yeah I can see why you said that after looking on my computer screen. But it was cool to see how some of those dragon flies move.

At least with super slomo you only need a half second in focus to get enough video.

Shooting some ballistic gel* in slow motion!



*okay, it's just normal jelly... so that an airsoft BB can actually penetrate it :D


Without any artificial light... on a cloudy rainy day. Still okay, but I miss my lights. I forgot them when I visited my parents home last month ::)
When I have my lights back, I want to experiment with this DAIN motion thing :)

Nice shots Luke! What was the framerate that you used? Cool to see how the jelly moves in slowmo. 👍
Yes, I think youíll like DAIN. Takes some experimentation to get good results but itís worth it.
