    Hello, was playing with the E-pl1 this past two days and tried taking videos of my kids while also using the art filters.
    Boy does the video become jerky!! Framerate is like 2FPS, ridiculous.

    I thought there would be a way to add the filter in post using Oly Viewer 2 but that does not seem to be the case.

    Am I missing something or there is no way to use the Oly art filters with video effectively?

    "...Framerate is like 2FPS, ridiculous."

    Are you referring to jerky video playback on the camera, or exported to computer for playback?
    I have read reviews elsewhere that make similar claims regarding poor video performance with some of the art filters (includes the EP-1). I haven't actually tested this myself, but maybe I will just to see if it's only laggy in the camera or exported or both.

    Both, it is just recorded at a very low framerate. Not enough cpu power I suppose

    Wish I could offer some feedback but I really haven't used the video on my camera - except by accident, so far.

    I hope there's a fix for this. I will say that using the grainy art filter in the still version does take time, so perhaps that's just its nature. I can see that it would be quite cool to use that filter for a video.

    I hope some videophiles will chime in here with their experiences soon.
