It’s that time of the year, the new Defacto fireworks, 3D mapping & light show in front of La Grande Arche de la Défense near Paris, created by Les Petits Français again. Just like last year and in 2012, I filmed the entire show and made a remix video with heavy editing fitting the music I chose.

In 2012 I was too close, last year I was too far, I think this year I got the perfect spot in the middle to capture the video projection, fireworks and the crowd with my 16mm wide angle lens. The Canon 6D was filming while I was taking pictures with the old 60D + GoPro 3 for timelapse.

The remix video took me a while to make. I spent 2 hours a day for one whole month looking for the music that would fit my editing and finally found “Highscore” by Teminite & Panda Eyes (which you can download for FREE on Soundcloud). The editing didn’t go as smooth as the other years mainly because this year’s show made it do hard to isolate fireworks and light effects.

  1. Ben la vache, “les petits français” font un travail remarquable, j’ai vue “Espace” mais pas “ici et ailleurs”. Beau travail pour le remix.

  2. Ah, j’étais pas loin justement ce jour la, j’ai entendu mais je ne savais pas pour ce feu d’artifice, j’essayerai l’année prochaine si il y en a un autre, sa a l’air c’est très cool.

  3. I know you didn’t film the event at 60 FPS, and therefore you couldn’t produce the video at 60 FPS, but I tried interpolating it out to 60 FPS, and it came out really well. I also converted it to, debanded it in, and encoded it in 10-bit, so the filesize came out even smaller than the original at CRF 17. DL: https://db.tt/riJTGhPl Note: Because it’s 10-bit, you have to download it to watch it, as Firefox and Chrome’s built-in video players don’t support 10-bit. Hope you like it! Personally, I really like the difference the interpolation makes.

    • Nice! Your interpolation works well indeed. What did you use ? I noticed some artifacts when playing frame by frame and transitions frames between cuts in the intro but it’s still really good. Would you like the lossless video to play with ?

      • To interpolate the video, I used an Avisynth plugin called Interframe: http://www.spirton.com/interframe/ Yeah, those artifacts are probably due to the fact that the video was interpolated as a whole, rather than doing it shot-by-shot or cut-to-cut. I appreciate your offer for the lossless video, but I’ve already gotten what I wanted out of the interpolation I already did. The next step would be to tweak it shot-by-shot, and that’s more work than I’m willing to put in. Maybe one of these days I’ll join the big boys and actually learn Twixtor. For now, though, I’ll stick with Avisynth.
