All the info is at the bottom of his video on the blog

Kayaker - Bryan Kirk.

Trying to find the limits with the built in time-remap tools of After Effects and my Canon T2i with slow motion.

I don't think I'd ever go to this extreme slow motion on a project, but it lets me know I can for sure get the frame rate way down without much trouble.

It blows my mind what you can record with what is really a $600 body nowadays.

Settings used:

50mm 1.4 Canon lens with polarizer
160 ISO
Cinestyle Picture Style
60 fps
1/1000 shutter speed

Pretty cool. Quick question since I am a camera/software nerd (but my use of After Effects is pretty limited). Is the time remap a feature with After Effects CS5.5 or an older version? Also, is there a way to transition into the slow motion or did you purposely pause for a second before? I can't wait to get home now and experiment with it a little.

Thanks yeah 60 fps works better than 30 or 24. Time remap has been in After Effects for at least the past 5 years or so (probably longer).

I made it the change abrupt for frame blending testing purposes but you can easily smooth the ramped time change by command+clicking (macintosh) the first keyframe of the slowed part which will create a very smooth transition.

I'm playing with a plugin called twixtor now to see if there is much better results with the way the frames blend (although it costs $500 and not really planning on spending that dough).
