Instructions:
Step 1: Install Anaconda (https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/)

Step 2: Go here: https://github.com/avinashpaliwal/Sup…
Click “Clone or Download” then “Download Zip”

Step 3: Extract the zip to a folder with an easy location with no spaces. (e.g. SuperSloMo)

Step 4: Download the pre-trained model here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ivob…
Place in SuperSloMo directory.

Step 5: Download ffmpeg from here: https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ Choose correct options for system & stable.
Unzip and rename to a simple name “ffmpeg” and place in the same parent directory as others.

Step 6: Open an Anaconda prompt. Use this link to generate the correct command: https://pytorch.org/get-started/locally/
e.g. conda install pytorch torchvision cudatoolkit=9.0 -c pytorch
And paste into the Anaconda prompt.

Step 7: Make an “Input” folder and place the footage you want to increase the framerate of inside it. Also make an “Output” folder for the finished conversions.

Step 8: Use “cd” in Anaconda to change the path to the folder that contains “video_to_slomo.py” & then run the process with the following command and arguments:
python video_to_slomo.py –ffmpeg C:\Users\Gerald\SloMo\ffmpeg\bin\ –video C:\Users\Gerald\SloMo\Input\Umbrella.mp4 –sf 4 –checkpoint C:\Users\Gerald\SloMo\SuperSloMo\SuperSloMo.ckpt –fps 120 –output C:\Users\Gerald\SloMo\Output\Umbrella120.mp4 –batch_size 1

Change the locations above to match the paths on your computer.
sf = multiple of frame rate
fps = target frame rate
batch_size = how quickly it will run/how much of the system will be used. (1 is lowest)

Step 9: Import the finished video into video editing software and lower the speed by the corresponding amount. For sf 4, set speed to 25%, etc.
