Can any FFMPEG experts tell me if FFMPEG can do any sophisticated frame interpolation similar to the Twixtor plugin in After Effects? If so, what would be some suggested settings to try? I'm trying to create ultra slow motion HD footage from a 60fps source. ie Convert to 120fps and interpolate the frames.

FFmpeg cannot do this.

There were some discussions about implementing such a feature a couple of years ago, but so far they haven't released anything similar to frame interpolation in the project.

You could of course use a similar free tool like slowmoVideo which is also hosted on GitHub if you want to take a look at the source.
