Optical Flow not working!

Hello,

I’ve been using the optical flow since a long time when doing slow-motions, but it has recently « stopped working »..  when I do a slow motion at 24fps and activate the optical flow, it doesn’t fill the missing frames and the clip is laggy (p.ex.: if I slow down a 24fps video by 50%, it won’t fill the missing frames and my clip will be at 12fps).

(P.S.: I do my slow motions in the effect controls panel so I can do progressive slow motions)

Thanks

You ARE remembering to Render the clip, correct? It's one of the only effects/techniques in the entire program that simply will not even try and play properly unless you Render it, no matter how powerful your system is!

It still doesn’t work after doing exactly what it’s said.. It maybe doesn’t work because I use speed ramps?

Hello,

I have exactlt the same problem where the optical flow works perfectly fine most of the time, but sometimes just won't create the extra images. Have you found a solution ?

 

Thank You

I was having the same issue. It has to do with the frame rate of the footage. My workaround was doing a render and replace of the trouble footage and then applying optical flow and rendering.

 

Hope that helps!

I was also having the same issue. Usually when I'd apply optical flow to a clip, I'd get the red line across the top of the timeline indicating it needed rendering, but even this didn't happen. The clip would continue to display the same way as it would with Frame Sampling.

My footage was scaled up quite a lot (it was archival footage that had been digitised some time ago), however I didn't have any other effects applied.

 

Best work around I found was to go back to the original clip in the source (while playhead is over the clip in timeline, press F key), right-click in source monitor and select "Make Subclip..", right-click on the new Subclip and select "New Sequence from Clip" and apply my time/duration changes in the new sequence, then drag this sequence into my original, and reapply any other scaling/color effects there again.

Thanks for all your answers !

 

What I figurted out on my own is that the functionning of the optical flow mainly depends on the clip preview:

Sometiemes as I apply my optical flow, the line will turn red and during the short render of the clip either the render will just last 2 or 3 seconds as the pourcentages will go from 27 to 69 to 100
Or the render will actually render each image individually and do something like : 1, 2, 5, 6, 8,10, 12... In which case the optical flow will work!! Each time that the render seemed to go through every images one by one, premiere was capable to create the secondary images to deliver a flawless slow-motion

 

So even before the end of the render I can already know whether it worked or not.

One might say that this is due to the PC config but I have tried this on 3 different computers with different powers and they all sometilmes made the optical flow work or not... So the issue doesn't seem to come from the computer but from Premiere !

 

I have tried many of your solutions but they don't seem to work for me... It's been several weeks that I have been trying the figure out the issue - but without success...

If anyone has any more  information on the subject that would be great !

Thanks

Hey! I think I have the solution, try to NEST the clip where you want to apply the effect, and then try to reduce the duration and try optical flow with tle clip already nested.
