    It was recommended to me by a user in another thread that in order to shoot high quality slow-motion for a 24p timeline, I should shoot in 60p (rather than VFR mode) and then import the clips into the 24 timeline and slow them down.
    I like the results so far. See the clip below. But it has some motion blur.

    I shot at 1/60 shutter in 60p. Should I increase the shutter to 1/100 to get sharper individual frames? Obviously I need to just run some tests, but I wanted to see what others think.
    Thanks!

    Shoot double your frame rate for a traditional blur. If you are not shooting on a camera capable of the exact shutter speed, just get close. So if you are shooting 60P...set it at 120....or even better..

    If on a cinema camera, just change it to "Shutter angle" and keep it at 180 degrees. Then you never have to think about it. It will always set itself proper for a traditional blur.

    I liked it.

    We can quibble over shutter angle, I might have used 270 degree as a starting point, and it's also possible I might not have liked it as well as the 360 you used here. For sure, I don't prefer the staccato look from frames with inadequate motion blur; if I was going to err it would be on the side of slower shutter rather than faster. As it was, buttery smooth never much bothers me, rather pretty in this case.

    I like to capture most of my slow motion at 90. Sometimes a certain amount of motion blur may be perfect (and I'll use 180 for slow human objects that are static) while other times (like with the bird), I personally would have chosen to use a faster shutter to see a bit more sharpness and detail in the expanded wings as the bird is flying away.

    Narrow shutter angles are pretty common in nature and sports, but it's fun to experiment and you'll probably learn a lot.
