One year ago I have presented slowmoVideo in this post, but back then it was available for Linux only. With a new algorithm that runs on the CPU (the other one runs on nVidia GPUs only) I could finally port it to Windows.
slowmoVideo is a program that, like Twixtor and similar, interpolates sub-frames to create slow-motion videos, as e.g. here:
You can download it on slowmoVideo.granjow.net.

Will, yes. Cannot do it myself thought since I do not have a Mac.

what will it take to port it to osx? i could try something, but since i'm not that great in coding and i can barely keep my homepage up to date without CMS i can't promise anything...

Just downloaded and had a play - works brilliantly. The curve control makes speed changes so easy - much better than other software I've tried.
A few questions:
- The program keeps throwing up an error saying flowBuilder can't be found - but it seems to be working anyway. Is that a problem?
- Does the windows (non nvidia) version produce the same output as the linux gpu version? ie are the underlying algorithms the same?
- Your website mentions flow editing but I can't find that option. Is that currently linux only?
Anyway, congratulations on a superb simple to use program and qudos to you for making it open source.

just downloaded the windows version.. i also downloaded wine and winebottler for osx to create a osx only (emulates a windows system) to use it just out of the box without prior install of wine... unfortunately it wasn't able to load the video codecs or something like that... but this would be a starting point maybe...

this works with windows 7 64X ? i Didn't see the executable for it, only 32 bit. does it matter. And will it run without ffshow?

I running it on windows 7 64 and it runs fine. Doesn't use the extra power I guess.
The only problem I've got is that it crashes when I try to do any kind of motion blur.

It works very well in XP...thank you sir !!

OS X:You will definitely some C++ skills for porting it to OS X, plus ideally know how to create .dmg packages.
64bit: slowmoVideo would not run faster with 64bit, I guess, and the 32 bit package works on 64 bit systems too.
ffshow: Not required. No additional libraries needed, slowmoVideo runs out-of-the-box (as far as I know) except for the ffmpeg executable.
GPU algorithm: The GPU algorithm (nVidia only) is in flowBuilder and has not been ported to Windows yet. My observation is that it produces much better results especially with larger movements
Flow Editor: Is now available as well in the .zip or .7z online.
@nathankw, should not crash. Can you run slowmoUI from a command line and see if there is an error message? When exactly does it crash, when rendering or when adding a blurring function?
