I don't know if it's just me, but when I view an amateur video, I usually notice it's very smooth and almost like there is no shutter. It's very hard to explain, but if you compare an amateur video to one that has been made in Hollywood for example - it justs seems like the Frame rate or shutter are always different. For instance, if I take my home camcorder and pan accross an object - the footage seems very odd, in the sense it's too smooth. But if I watch something like that on a TV channel playing a movie, it seems a tiny bit more choppy and looks better (in my opinion). It's really hard to describe, but the best way to put it.. is that if you compare amateur movies to veteran ones - I always seem to notice the video frame-rate or shutter seems slightly different. I hope someone is at least somewhat clued into what I'm trying to say. I'm also wondering if it's possible to add this effect, if it is one, into home footage? Thanks in advance!
