Frame Rate Conversion with Twixtor

Frame Rate Conversion with Twixtor
  Play Video
Often times you need to make your edit in Premiere, Final Cut Pro or Avid and then import in After Effects to finish it or simply to do the final render, using tools such as Automatic Duck to import the project. This Tutorial demonstrates how to quickly setup large edits to do frame rate conversion with Twixtor in After Effects. In particular, we use footage from the Canon 5D Mark II that can only shoot 30 FPS and convert our edit for a 24P delivery, but this method can be applied to any frame rate conversion.

Marking Segments with Twixtor

Marking Segments with Twixtor
  Play Video
Optical Flow retiming might not work well when you work with footage that has cuts in it (i.e the gloopyness effect might not be what you want). If the footage was preedited elsewhere or you precomposed a set of layers, you might see some warping artifacts as you cross a scene cut point (or even a transition like a dissolve). In this tutorial we show you how to mark such segments in Twixtor so your retiming is not affected by such issue.
