EN: Undercranking


The process of slowing the frame rate of a camera down, so that when the captured pictures are played at the normal frame rate the action appears to be in fast motion. Historically, cameras were operated by turning a crank at a constant speed; hence undercranking refers to turning the crank too slowly. See also overcranking, frames per second, judder.

In film recording, frames are recorded at a slower speed than the anticipated playback rate, creating a fast-motion effect on playback. An undercranking effect is possible with some video cameras.
