For years, filmmakers – particularly timelapse and stop motion shooters – have been looking for ways to help smooth out their footage with interpolation. Or perhaps you just want to slow some footage down that wasn’t shot at a high frame rate.
Many of us have used Twixtor at some point in order to do this before native optical flow features started to appear in editors like Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve. Well, this one from researchers at Google, UC Merced and Shanghai Jiao Tong University just blows all previous techniques away. It’s called DAIN and it’s pretty awesome.
