If you’re an independent filmmaker, then you have probably run into this problem:

You’re editing your footage. Everything looks great. You want to add a slo-motion effect to the footage you shot in 120 fps (frames per second)!

But wait.. You actually forgot to change your camera settings and it was shot in 24fps!

Fear not! All’s not lost!

There’s a feature within Premiere Pro CC that will save your life called Optical Flow. This video I stumbled upon will show you how to best use this incredible feature.

I hope you have read this filmmaking advice in time before your reshoots.
