Slow Motion 60 fps GoPro HD Footage Test

November 19, 2010 - By 

An experiment at the Dunes with my camera my friends and the dogs.

Filmed with the GoPro HD HERO Camera Naked at 60fps, slowed down and color graded in After Effects with Vintage Film For Looks. The quality of the video is really good for such a little teeny camera. I love that it’s water proof to, so I don’t mind the dogs biting and drooling on it.

Another note. It’s amazing what slowed down footage and a sad song will do to a fun day at the beach. Music is more than 50% of the mood. Just saying.

  • I know this is an old topic, but thought I’d share a commercial I just made for DVS using 6 GoPro’s. This aired during the AMA Supercross Finals on SPEED and will be on FUEL TV during the month of June.

  • What camera did u use ?

  • Nice video! I want one of these cameras sooo bad! I’ll definately try and get one before the winter starts…

    I made a post on my blog with the top 6 GoPro Snowboard videos, if you are interested:

  • This video is amazing. Had smile on my face all the way through.

    Brilliant work!!! 🙂

  • Hey Nick, i’m new here and have fumbled my way through using After effects and Cinema 4d for a bit now, you have helped me tons already. You are the best resource for inspiration and learning for me at the moment, 4 years at a great university and I learn more through you.

    Had a bit of time on my hands after watching this (and realising I cant afford a GoPro for a while!) started playing with a crappy video taken on my 3GS the other day, taking a bit of inspiration from your AfterEffects compositing tutorial also. Check it out!

    Thanks again for all the work you put into this site, it’s brilliant – keep it up!

  • really cool. the colours are so nice. with how soft you edit this? at what speed (%) you use? thanks!

  • please make a tutorial on youtube..

  • So to slow down a vid in AE you just change the composition settings to 24fps from 60 and you get that amazing effect?
    (assuming you filmed at 60fps)

  • When you shoot at 60 fps about how much footage would you be able to capture on a 4gb card? I’m using a go pro for winter sports and would like to make some cool slow-mo snowboarding shots but was curious on how much time I could fit on a 4gb card. Thanks

  • Thanks for the feedback man! love the site btw 🙂

  • that was beautiful..

  • What is the name of the song???

  • you say it was “naked” but in your shadow at 03:11 it looks like you have the little arms connected which means it must be in the protective shell?

    yet the picture is super clear, I find mine is much clearer when it really is “naked” and not in the little housing.

  • This is cool… How much slow down can you do?

  • Hi Sir Nick-could you please teach me how you did the slow motion thing-because i haven’t seen any camera that take a video in slow motion. Please.

  • Is the first time when i see your work, your movies, tutorials…
    I am very impressed Gorilla!
    … “Filmed with the GoPro HD HERO Camera Naked at 60fps, slowed down and color graded in After Effects with Vintage Film For Looks. ” WOOOW:) is incredibly!
    Best choice melody from **** Sigur Ros*****

  • I just couldn’t depart your site before suggesting that I actually loved the standard info a person provide for your visitors? Is gonna be again incessantly to investigate cross-check new posts

  • What is the name of the song and who recorded it?

  • Cool video

    But the BIG question why is the dog wearing pants ????

  • cooolll!!! i really loved watch this video!! simple but it was like a cinema film.

  • What’s the song ?

  • I think the coolest part is that friends are out having fun,and not just sitting around watching other people enjoying life ….

  • nice job. my question is; how do u practically slow down a footage shot at 60fps in after effects? do i nid to just right click and go to time remaping or should i change the frame rate at compsition settings? pls i nid ur help

  • Alright, so what I’ve gathered is that you shot it from the GoPro in it’s 60 fps setting, then changed it to 24 fps using Adobe After Effects. Would Vegas Pro be able to do the same the with Twixtor? Also, did you have it on any of the other settings on the GoPro itself, I believe it’s called multishot or something of the sort, or was it only on the video mode?
    Awesome vid and helpful info.
