If you leave the settings untouched, you should have a file call Rendered.mp4 in the Videos or My Videos folder

On my side, using gnome ubuntu utopic, i added raring and saucy repositories, and slowmo raring. Synaptic solved the dependencies with the old libav*** librairies, and the installation was successfull. I think i also added the convenient ffmpeg repository.

So I'm struggling here. I just got thinks compiled and installed on mint 17.1. ( I ran into a small install bug, where the fixup_bundle threw an error on line 42 which I just commented out.)
When I set up a project using pro-res converted h264 (I think) .mp4 s from my samsung nx1 I get:
number of streams = -1
and zeroed other terms.
I tried used avconv to convert to an avi which went without a hitch but the container still seems poorly formatted.
Is this a common error for which there is a nice work around?

-Thanks

How did you install opencv-dev? This package keeps crashing Cinnamon for me. Can you provide me any pointers for installing in Mint 17?

Hi, I'm trying to render a jumping subject in slowmotion, but I'm getting blurry edges during the entire jumping motion. How can I prevent that? This one's on 50 lambda and two-way interpol setting. I've seen many silky smooth slowmotion done with the app. What adjustment should be done?

Thanks Cyril L for the tips you gave. I will keep those in mind the next time I shoot. I am still, however, skeptic about the quality of the vid I shared as I have rendered the same in Sony Action cam movie creator in slow motion too, but I didn't get that blurry edges in the moving subject. My guess is that slowmo is much much better basing on what I've seen so far with slowmo sample vids.

Hi -- I am beginning to try and use slowmoVideo with Lightworks. The video files are 1920x1080 but the output PNG files are all 1280x1080. I don't see any obvious "setting" or configuration option that would allow me to change the aspect ratio. How do I maintain the source video aspect ratio when exporting frames to PNG image sequence?

+Valery Brasseur Yes, I think so... thanks for your efforts to assist. It seemed likely that I had simply overlooked some setting or option (i.e., the problem was user-error, not software-related) since none of the other users on the LW forum mentioned a similar problem. I was hoping to find that "easy" answer here, but if the problem is truly in the assistant application software, then I am back at square one.  Cheers & thanks again!

Hey , I have a really quick question , is it some how possible to automate the flow editor, because it is quite hard to grasp, I don't know much of programming (all I know is JAVA) , so I don't think I can write any code myself. Also , pardon my naivety to this , but what language is this written on.

Well usually all black regions are problems and some other regions too but I was thinking this could be like an optional auto-correct feature that could be used to ease the process for novices like me this would definitely help to better the final rendered result.

Hi, how do you render a mov file and keep it as a mov file? I read a post earlier that says to save as a PNG file and then use Shotcut, but when I label the file as a .PNG in the output file of slowmovideo, I get a message that says "Rendering aborted. Video could not be prepared (error code 3)" . However, it renders when I do mpg. I apologize as I'm editing video for the first time and am new to video editing.

what OS are you using ? as for the png files, you should check Image instead of Video in the preferences when choosing the destination.

Hi,

when using two-way flow interpolation, I seem to have lot's of ghosting which I didn't have with one way (forward) flow.
did others have seen this effect ?

Hello, I've installed slomoVideo but it does not come up in the software centre. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit. I followed the build instructions on the slomo web page. There is now a slomoVideo folder in "home" but I am not able to find the app to use. What can I try to start this app? Thank you.

Hi,

I made about 380 pictures (1 pic each 1,5 sec) from an aurora and want to make a video in real time, so a viewer will have an impression how northern lights are moving over the sky in real speed.

I try slowmoVideo on Windows 7.

1. I understand, that on vertical axis there are my 380 pictures  - but I have to scroll up and down. Is it possible to change magnification, so I can see the complete y-axis?

2. On horzontal axis slowmoVideo shows me a time of some seconds. How to change it the desired 9 minutes?

Jürgen

.... you go in the folder and delete the pictures ? Then yes, obviously the system is not happy, since the flow file refers to this pictures. I was speaking about the very first input pictures you want to use (the one from your timelapse).
Just in case, create a new project and start over, with fewers input pictures.

Hi - my laptop does not run on a GPU, but i can render. However the articfacts are very visible. What other kind of settings can i use to prevent them from appearing, workarounding the fact i cannot use the build flow lambda parameter?

Hi, have you check older conversations ? there is a lot's of stuff about "quality" rendering.
as for the artifiact, can you give more precise examples ?

Hi guys, i've compiled slowmovideo on my linux mint 17 machine (ubuntu based) after some trial and error, the program runs fine, a can import a vídeo, change the curve and stuff... but no render preview, and no render at all, when i try to render i got an error message saying that the program could not read the original image, even if its on a unprotected folder (the image is there, on the frames/orig folder). Another question is about flowBuilder, i have a GTX550 ti with all the drivers, but i didnt found flowBuilder anywhere.

Well, the generated .sVflow files are necessary, flowEdit (afair) does not generate any of them. Either flowBuilder does, on the GPU, or the built-in OpenCV algorithm does. (Or, should. :) )

I have installed slowmoVideo onto Ubuntu 14.04, but it doesn't matter what type of video I use it will not let me click 'ok'. Please help!

The new ffmpeg I built had a missing library issue that I have now fixed - and with it slowmoUI is running and the details being shown all appear correct. Trying it now, so hopefully it's all good from here.

Hello, is Slowmo uses timecodes from my VFR video, or just extract frames and render with some average source FPS?

Mikhail, if you haven't already, you should download the program and give it a try! (There are some tutorials on how to use it on Youtube). It's not that complicated to use and the results can be very good if you set up your shot right: Good lighting, not too much motion blur, good contrast between foreground subjects and background, etc. A source frame rate of 60fps or higher helps as well.
