Default Slow motion

Hi

I'm working on an animation where I need a slow motion effect somewhere half through. Is there any easy way of slowing down everything in the scene? Not just movements, but also dynamics. Falling objects should fall slower, and particles should be emitted with a lower speed and at a lower rate.

Well, yes, and no. It depends on what you wanna do.

You've stated that you want EVERYTHING to slow.

You can do this by rendering out your sequence at a higher frame rate like say, 90-120 fps, and then in your compositing app, blend the "normal" speed footage with the "slower" footage so that way you can "ramp-up" into the slo-mo sequence without it being to jerky.

However, if you actually want to keep the same frame rate, and make everything slower, I believe you can add a timewarp to things in the Hypergraph to do something like this.

Check the docs for "Time Warp". Also, search SM and Highend for the same text, and you should get a LARGE amount of reading on this very topic that will lead you in many directions

Good luck!

or you might land up at a Rocky Horror Picture Show fan site careful out there...
