Big Sur Pfeiffer Beach
Here's the last video in the Big Sur series shot on the Sony A7S. This video has a lot of experimentation with slow motion shot at 210fps at 720p. This slows the footage down to 20%, which was actually so slow that I ended up speeding some clips up to 40%.
Because the final video and normal-speed clips are at 1080p, the slow motion clips needed to be up-resed. This left the clips looking soft or slightly blurry. So I overlaid a video clip of 35mm film grain on to those clips. It perhaps looks a bit jarring cutting between sharp 1080p video with 720p video with grain, but I actually like the quality of the grain a lot, as opposed to the fcpx stock grain that I added to the first video.
Had a little trouble returning an xml from resolve to fcpx and had to drag all the video clips in from the finder and re-apply the slow motion fx, which was frustrating and time consuming. Not sure what the errors are about but I'm sure I wont get any answers because Apple is awesome.
