In this tutorial we will learn how we can fake slow motion on our drone footage. Why would we ever need to do this? Well let’s say you have a drone shot that is perfect for your video, however it is just a few seconds too short. You can stretch that footage out a bit, emulating a natural slow motion look to add the extra few seconds to the shot you need! Let’s take a look at how this is done.
One easy way to add a cinematic edge to drone footage is to showcase the footage in slow motion. In order to achieve this look, we need to interpret footage shot at a higher frame rate, such as 60 frames per second, and bring it down so that it plays at 30 frames per second.
