Alexa Mini Low FPS

Recommended Posts


is it possible to do low fps shots with the alexa mini?

I want to have a lot of motion blur like with a low shutter. What settings should I use?


Thank you!

I just checked on ours and it seems that 23.976 is the minimum frame rate.  If all you want is motion blur, you could play with the shutter settings and adjust frame rate in post.

These are the specs I got from the ARRI site, I don't see a lower limit of 23.976 fps for the Mini:

ProRes HD: 0.75 - 200 fps
ProRes S16 HD: 0.75 - 200 fps
ProRes 2K: 0.75 - 200 fps
ProRes 3.2K: 0.75 - 60 fps
ProRes UHD: 0.75 - 60 fps
ProRes 4:3 2.8K: 0.75 - 50 fps
ProRes 2:39:1 2K Ana.: 0.75 - 120 fps
ProRes HD Ana.: 0.75 - 120 fps
MFX/ARRIRAW 16:9 2.8K: 0.75 - 48 fps
MFX/ARRIRAW 3.4K Open Gate: 0.75 - 30 fps

David, I double checked and you’re right. The 23.976 is the lowest pre-made pre-set setting. If you want lower you have to add a preset and then dial it in. You learn something every day.
