Adjust Your Frame Per Second
The very first step in achieving a buttery smooth slo-mo clip is to increase your frames per second (FPS). Although the filmmaking standard is set to film in 24fps, increasing the number of frames to either 60fps, 120fps, and 240fps will effectively portray every fleeting microexpression in sight; giving you soft, yet realistic movement on mobile when slowed down in post.
60fps: Quicker paced clips, yet much slower than real-life movements to emphasis a dramatic subject.
120fps: The baseline for slow motion speed at just a quarter of the speed of real life. This is the go-to FPS for action-packed sport broadcasts and replays.
240fps: Epic b-roll shots with supremely smooth movements for a JJ Abrams-like affect.
