When apply slow motion to a video clip, each frame plays slower, resulting in a lower frame rate. All you’re probably losing is frame rate, so the motion won’t be as smooth. If possible, use your camcorder to record at 60i or 60p – then you will have a higher frame rate to back you up when applying slow motion. Slowing down half of the speed will give you a frame rate of 30. Also, don’t be concerned about keeping a 60 FPS video at 60 frames per second; most TVs and video players are only capable of showing 30.
Anyway, slowing picture motion will always lose frame rate – there’s no way out of that.
hope this helps!
