Three Amazing Twixtor Slow Motion Videos

One of my Boot Camp students sent along a cool Twixtor video; the first one you see here. (Thanks Steven!) I’ve played with Twixtor before but some people are doing really amazing looking stuff with it.

What is Twixtor? It’s a video plugin that allows you create slow motion effects in post production – that means you can shoot with any video camera and slow the footage down and not be forced to use some super expensive specialized slow-mo camera. According to their website…

Twixtor enables you to speed up, slow down or frame rate convert1 your image sequences with visually stunning results. In order to achieve its unparalleled image quality, Twixtor synthesizes unique new frames by warping and interpolating frames of the original sequence… employing RE:Vision’s proprietary tracking technology that calculates motion for each individual pixel.

Mountain Dew & Doritos Cupcake = The Rapture

I think this is one of the end times signs. You’re looking a Mountain Dew & Doritos Cupcake.

From the Today Show Bites blog…

Rivers, the man behind 4Rivers Smokehouse in Orlando, is opening a bakery called 4River Sweetshop that will feature some wild new treats, including Coke and Ruffles cupcakes, Mountain Dew and Doritos cupcakes, Cheerwine cupcakes and, still in the works, Nehi grape soda cupcakes.

We got a chance to sample some and we have to say, Coke and Ruffles come together to make one beautiful cupcake, baby. The soda-flavored icing is not too sweet and balances really well with the salty, crunchy chips that top the cupcake and are also added to the cake batter.

Would I try one? Of course I would.
