A week later when I got back home I downloaded a 3D model of an RAF Sea King rescue helicopter and animated it flying over it.[/norebro_text][norebro_text appearance_effect=”fade-up” appearance_duration=”1000″]Calculating the helicopter speed

I wanted the helicopter flight to look as natural as possible in slow-motion so that meant trying to calculate how fast the rotors would be travelling and the speed of the chopper in relation to the slow motion waves of the sea.

I found out that the average helicopter propeller rotates at between 460 and 600 RPM (rotations per minute); the footage was filmed at 100 FPS (frames per second) which is 4 times slower than normal speed footage which is usually 25 FPS; So, I worked that the propeller needed to rotate 15 times (15 x 360° = 5,400°) per second.[/norebro_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
