  • Freeze and Pan effect

    Hi all - tell me where to post this
    There is probably a technical term for this - I don't know it
    Looking for tutorial on how to create the effect used on opening sequence of "Person of Interest"
    Looks like a still or freeze frame but the camera appears to pan sideways and as it does you can see that it is not a static photo. You can see behind the figures standing in front.
    I am using FCP but the process should be similar regardless of edit suite.
    I see this frequently in tv shows and commercials which makes me think its not outlandishly difficult.

    Thanks, Rick

    High-speed camera on a fast-moving dolly.
    You can try using Twixtor.

      Ohhhh, so its not an editing trick at all? Its all done with camera work and staging the shot you are after?
      So you capture the footage at high speed and simply slow it down in the timeline?
      All this time I thought it was an edit trick.
      I'll try it!

      Thanks
