TECHNIQUES - TIME RAMP


A time ramp occurs when there is a frame rate change within a shot. For example when the frame rate changes from 24 fps (normal time) to 250 fps (slow motion).

In Digital Air's camera systems the frame rate is free to change gradually or abruptly. This is because changing the frame rate is simply a matter of changing the timing of the internal triggering of the cameras across the system.

Because the frame rate in our systems is free from any mechanical or inertial constraints and the virtual point of view of our systems can be in two or more physical locations at the same time, we can, for example, slow down and stop time then reverse it and make it go backwards - all within a single continuous shot from a moving point of view.

This example of a time ramp was recorded by mounting an Arri 435 on one end of a Timetrack™ 80 lens curved camera and moving the entire system (Timetrack™ and Arri) on a dolly during the take (see photo above). The Arri's frame rate was 50 fps and the Timetrack™ camera's frame rate was 250 fps (sequential).
