Slow Motion Animation

206 Views, 3 Replies

I have an animation, that's already moving at about 1/15 real speed, but even then is too fast to really tell what is going on. There are lots of components and lots of component animations and component fades, repeated numerous times over a 50 sec animation. I would like to be able to take what I've already setup and slow all of my animations down to about 1/2 of what they are right now. Giving me a slow motion effect.

My actions are simple move components & fade on "air particles" grouped together to demonstrate their movement thru ducting. There are about 20 separate particles and each group of actions is repeated 8-10 times.

attached is a simplified snipet of the animation,

my idea is to zoom in and show the air flow thru the Oil Mist Recycler (box in middle) in slo motion.

Thanks,

Larry

Here's your video slowed down 50%.

If you want the image to be less jumpy, then yo u will need to up the
frame rate. If you want a better (high) quality render, then you need to
increase render resolution from your 640x480.

Thanks, Dennis.

I think what I'll do to achieve this is take the 45 sec animation I have now and render at whatever frame rate I want it at (probably 12 f/s) for the duration I would like to see at "normal speed", then for the sections I'd like to see in slow motion i'll render that at twice the frame rate (24 f/s) then have a marketing designer do what you did and with camtasia and slow it down to 50%. Thanks for the tip. I wasn't thinking far enough outside the box (box being inventor). This will be much faster than what I was going to do otherwise.

I'll try to remember to post the finished product when we finish it.

Keep in mind that standard frame rates for movie production is either 24
or 30 FPS.
