You Won't Believe This Video Is Not Real Slow-Motion

A year ago, BASE jumper Jeb Corliss defied death by jumping off a mountain in Switzerland wearing only his wing-suit and five GoPro cameras. A few days ago he processed some of his video through Twixtor. The crystal-clear results are insane.

Twixtor is an artificial video speed software filter that works in programs like After Effects and Final Cut Pro. It analyzes footage, estimating motion and creating new frames as needed out of pure magic, speeding up or slowing down your video. I'm in awe. [YouTube and Twixtor via Petapixel]

I'm not really up on slow mo cinematography but when you say "Real slow-motion" is that when a high speed camera is used? Can't you just slow down anything?

This does look impressive although there does seem to be some odd artifacting going on around the edge of the suit at times. Guess it's where the algorithm can't keep up with whats going on?
