  1. Thanks for your advice, Phil. I definitely have to try it out and test both extensively. My camera would only shoot 50fps at the cost of a lower resolution. Files sizes are approximately similar, though. The picture is darker due to the higher minimum shutter speed, but I'll be careful of any flicker issues as you said.
  2. I'm planning to permanently switch my frame rate to 50fps (or 60fps in NTSC). The shutter speed would be 50, 100, or higher accordingly. This is because I would like to have the option to apply slow motion during post production. With the increased number of frames and data available, I hope to smoothen the motion better than a software could, and continue to use a 25fps timeline. Am I missing any drawbacks or disadvantage when using this setting? Is there anything I should mind during filming or post production? Many thanks for your input!
  3. You pointed me to exactly what I was looking for! Highly appreciated. So it's actually an entire clip blended on top of the footage. Now I get the concept.
  4. Many thanks for your reply, Phil. I'm certain that it's composited over in post production because the effects span across multiple clips, including where it's not directly looking at a light source. So I'll have to try out a few things.
  5. This is my first post, and I hope to learn a lot in these forums going forward, as I'm just starting out in videography. I have been noticing a particular effect often applied in videos on Vimeo, whereby some kind of Aurora is blended over scenes. For example here: http://vimeo.com/40558553 at 0:20 to 0:25, and again at 0:42 to 0:47 Do you have any tips to make similar glaring effects with FCPX?
