Speeding up the clip will look stupid. You must first speed it up, look so there no other moving objekts in the bakground. Then when the guy runs realy fast it looks unaturall, cuz it's to little motion blur.

Try to add some mb in some nle.

I've seen some cameras that have "ghost mode". What it does is when you move, it leaves a trail of you behind it, it makes it look like your moving fast. That could be used.

Use strobe on your camera (most camera's have it )
But as v6proz says, the background has to stay still, then speed it up with software.

Some camera programs have something called Time-Lapse which speeds everything up and you can choose how fast. In the lego commercials where it shows kids building lego sets really fast, I think they use that. My Quickcam PRo 3000 does Time-Lapse. And when youi do time-lapse, you are moving normally, at a normal speed, and when you are filming it is normal, but when you play back what you filmed it is fast! biggrin

Hi,

I'm new to this forum, but my kids and I have used AlamDV for a few short films already and we love it.

In regards to running real fast, we have a Sony Digital8 camera, and it has an effect called "Slow Shutter". It has settings from 1-4. When setting 3 or 4 is enabled, there is a very noticeable motion blur when you're filming something that moves. If you don't want the background to move, you have to use a tripod. Film someone running, and you'll see them running, but they'll mostly be blurred.

I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but that's how I found to make it appear someone's running real fast.

how about first shooting a video of the bg then the guy running
put the runnin video layer in ae over the bg and create a simple mask
so the bg stuff remains at same speed.
