    #15 GTFO :O

    #72 This one should have a bit more explanation.
    Exposing the liquid to a 24Hz Sine Wave does not cause it to appear like that. It will appear to spread out due to being vibrated.
    However, because the camera is running at 24fps, it "sees" the water at the same place every frame, so it appears static.
    If you play a 25Hz wave, it appears to slowly 'move down', and playing at 23fps makes it look like it climbs up.
    If your camera is set to 30fps, you would need to play the wave at 30/31/29Hz respectively for the same effect.
    This (or the first vid) is the source of that gif. I believe they explain it in the description or the video


    This is similar to why car's wheels sometimes appear to spin backwards, or appear static, on camera :)

    Nice explanation, thank you !

    No probs :)

    It would be amazing if it looked like that in real life though :P
