Caleb Pike shows you how to create beautiful re-timed slow motion shots using camera movement and some tricks in post via FCPX. In Premiere, this is called time remapping. Right click on the little colored fx logo in the corner of the clip in your timeline, select time remapping and then select speed. You can now add control points by holding control and clicking on the clip.
On this edition of Tips & Tricks, we will demonstrate how to pull off some very unique slider shots. These creative movements can help you tell a story, and enhance your production value.

Making cinemagraphs is a great way to bring your still images to life, and they can be as simple or as complex as you want them to be.
