Remember all those cool Twixtor movies slowing down HDSLR footage to really really slow speeds? It turns out you can do that very nicely in FCPX without a plugin. I tried this on some Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) footage and it worked nicely.

Much to slow, but its a good exercise in the performance of the software.
