Canon, Twixtor and a whole lot of splashback

If I was 18 years old, Swedish and my name was Rickard, I'd like to think that I'd be pushing the envelope, and experimenting with my 550D and Twixtor to get some amazing results. I'd just make sure my mom didn't hang out the washing before I went out to get grungy! More cool Twixtor stuff after the break.

And here's another video from Peter Miller. Important to note that these examples are not from the pro line of canon cameras.

Twixtor enables you to speed up or slow down your image sequences with visually stunning results. In order to achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original sequence… employing RE:Vision’s proprietary tracking technology that calculates motion for each individual pixel. Version 5.0 was certainly put to good effect in Rickard's video as well as in Peter's video.

Rickard Bengtsson is an 18 year old Swedish design and video enthusiast who is certainly creating his own wave at the moment. This is the tech spech for his video: Shutter: 1000 Iso: 400-3200 Twixtor speed ranging from 2-20%. Lenses: Canon 18-55 Sigma 70-300 Bit of warping in a few spots but nothing too bad. Music: Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Perpetuum Mobile

In  Peter's film, the motocross shoot was a test for the Canon Rebel T2i and Twixtor. It was shot at 60p with a 1/1000 shutter speed. This way, there was minimum motion blur and the most information possible for Twixtor to do its thing. Music: "Svefn G Englar" Sigur Ros
