Hi Barry.

No matter what you do, you will not get anything to give you a smooth slow motion. Your shutter speed will not be of any help either, although it will make a difference to your normal speed. Edius can not do slow motion effects. Like you would get with say Avid or something else that either has filters or plugs that do proper motion adaptive frame interpolation.

I have used an Avid finishing system that does do compensated slow motion, it can look very good depending on how far you push it and the motion content of the frames. Aside from that, you want to look into exporting your clip from Edius, process it externally, and bring it back into Edius. Barring the obvious codec and bit depth issues, this is easily done.

You should maybe try altering how the speed control is dealing with the frame structure first, nearest frame etc. Altering these settings will give you obvious changes to the motion, that may be all you need, motion blur etc. is of no use to you.

Hope this helps.
