After watching penguins frolicking in slow motion during Frozen Planet this year, you’re often left wondering how such stunning images are captured. It doesn’t take the most cynical person to conclude…wads of cash. The equipment used to capture images so dramatically can cost upward of £100,000, a tad excessive for amateur film makers out there. However, you can now achieve the same effects for a fraction of the price using a simple plugin.
The above short was shot at just 60 FPS and then processed by a plugin called Twixtor. Each frame was slowed down to create the illusion that you are seeing images produced by much more expensive equipment. Impressive stuff.
