Bullet time effect – Still cameras array – Time slice
I first thought about bullet time camera effect when watching Red Hot Chilli Peppers live at Slane when Kiedis jumped and the camera panned from one side to other. I could never think about the logic how the hell they do it with only one camera or software effects. The camera panning must be super fast to create that sort of motion, I thougth. Then I found out that Bullet time camera effect is what they used, its a scene created when a frozen motion is panned using gazillion of camera set up around the object.
Here are some example of amazing examples beside the most famous one, Matrix movie bullet time scene and they are not the first time to use this technique:
