I work for a mining company as drill and blast engineer, we have recently began videoing all blasting events that occur on site.
The people before me purchased a JVC GZ-X900 HD Camera to record all events, the problem i'm having (and those before me) is once the file has been clipped to a more suitable size we would like to view the blasts in slow motion (not sure if thats the correct terminology) or frame by frame to see what influence the our explosives have on the rock mass, but we are unable to do it.
Is there software available that can do the above?
Also once the files are clipped we would like to mave some short movies showing all blasts and if possible, add some cool tunes in the background, but the file sizes begin to get massive. What is the best format to convert the HD format to to get more suitable file sizes and what would be the best software available to edit the movies?
