How do you do those speeded up effects?

    I have noticed on quite a few Phantom videos where you get the cool effect where the footage rapidly speeds up and them goes to either normal speed or slowmo. Do you need a top price editing suite like Premier Pro/ After Effects/ Final cut pro to do this? Or is it an independant piece of software that is used?

    cheers

    on the cheap, GoPro's cineform does indeed allow you to speed up footage (not sure how well it slows it down).
    But obviously, a 3rd party editing app is much more ideal at it. Apps suh as Adobe Premiere and After Effects have additional abilities to slow down footage by interpolation
    between frames, to make things look even smooother.

    Apples' Final Cut Pro does a "ramp" speed change which starts at one speed, increases or decreases through the shot up to four times. Very cool effect. One advantage FCP has over adobe's software is the simpler purchase. You buy it you own it, not a monthly lease or the other goofy things adobe has cooked up. Adobe software is better but their business plan is tough to take.
