  1. #1 Overcranking look. . . 
    Hi all. . .

    I'm interested in getting your opinions on whether if I shoot something overcranked to say 60fps I can then change my mind in post can I have it look the same as if it was shot at 24fps should I decide not to go slo-mo on those shots. I could keep the shutter at 180 degrees in all cases and editing in Premiere Pro.

    Wouldn't the best idea be to split the difference between the 180 shutters respective to both frame rates? 180 for 24 fps is 1/48, and for 60 fps is 1/120 so shoot at 1/(24+ (120 - 24)/2) = 1/96 s?

    This is always a tough choice because the Shuter really makes the footage look different when sped up. Take a good look at the motion blur filter in Afrer Effects. It really does a good job at adding in the missing piece of the puzzle.
