There are two ways to get super smooth slow-mo. The first is to capture your footage at a very high framerate, like 150 frames per second or more, which is how they did it for The 300. Unfortunately, this isn't an option with video cameras, with rare and expensive exceptions.

The second is to purchase software such as Twixtor, which can create frames between the existing frames, called interpolation, and with a bit of finesse, create a reasonably accurate version of the missing frames for your slow-mo shot.

Greetings all! I was online and found this:
http://eugenia.gnomefiles.org/2009/02/09/butter-smooth-slow-motion/

I have an HV20 and I can change the Shutter speed (...by going to Func.>Program AE and switch it to SHUTTER-PRIO. AE and changing 60 to 500 [may be different in the UK]) but I don't know how to change the framerate on the Camcorder. Does anyone know how? Thank you! -Storm Grenade
