Slow motion video of lightning. Recorded at a rate of 6,200 frames per second. Slow motion (commonly abbreviated as slo-mo or slow-mo) is an effect in film-making whereby appears to be slowed down. It was invented by the priest in the early 20th century. Typically this style is achieved when each frame is captured at a rate much faster than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving more slowly. A term for creating slow motion film is overcranking which refers to hand cranking an early camera at a faster rate than normal (i.e.
Faster than 24 frames per second). Slow motion can also be achieved by playing normally recorded footage at a slower speed. This technique is more often applied to video subjected to than to film. A third technique that is becoming common using current computer software post-processing (with programs like ) is to fabricate digitally frames to smoothly transition between the frames that were actually shot. Motion can be slowed further by combining techniques, interpolating between overcranked frames.
