Inspired by some good timelapse videos – especially by some of Vincent Laforet‘s videos – I got interested in timelapses. It didn’t took long until I decided to order an interval timer for my camera and started to play with it.
So this are the first results which are really nice. Not all are perfect exposed but for the first test I’m really happy with this shots. I used LR-Timelapse to preprocess the images and used Motion 5 to render out ProRes files and edited them in FCPX. LR-Timelapse seems to be nice software but I’m not 100% happy with it. Still some flickering. I’ll try to optimize this with the next shots I’m doing. Maybe I’ll also try some other software.
Hint for viewing the video: Use a browser which is H264-compatible because this codec produces much better results as WebM with comparable and web-usable bitrates. But I’ll also try to tweak the encoding process to get better quality videos for this site.
