In the film/video world this is called time warping. If you are stretching the vision to be longer, instead of just duplicating frames, the newly created frame(s) end up being a morph sequence between the previous and next frames.Timmy Diamond wrote:It occured to me shortly after I first heard about Live that the same principle could be applied to visuals ie. you scan through your footage adding warp markers and the software slows or speeds the interveneing footage to make it fit. End result is people movin' really slow then a sudden burst of action totally in-time with your music. Any takers??sweetjesus wrote:i just have a tingling feeling that this is the case. the last time there was such absence from ableton folks on here was when they were all too busy workin on live 4 just before release.
Then you have other things which you can do with film, like shoot something at 200 frames per second as opposed to the usual 24 then slow the footage down. Or the other way around, shooting at 24fps, and getting the actors to do their thing really slowly, then speeding the footage up (nicely done if you speed the footage up at certain keypoints). The latter technique is applied to many hip-hop/r'nb video clips you see on MTV.
As for the former video technique, bruce lee was so fast with his moves that they had to shoot him at a high frame rate and slow it down just to capture the moves which were too fast to see at 24 frames per second.
