I’ve always wanted to do a time lapse video, but I didn’t understand the technical aspects of how to capture the images and then stitch them together to create a movie. Time lapse movies take pictures more slowly than traditional video does, therefore it appears to speed things up, because of the gaps between shots.
For this video, I used my iTouch, stuck to the proshop window with poster tack, and used the app iTimeLapse from the app store to capture one image per second for 6,000 images at a resolution of 720×960. I then had the app stitch the images together at 24 frames per second with the same resolution.
I edited the video a little bit, added an opening and closing graphic, and some iLife music, and voila, our little time lapse mini piece (verses masterpiece 🙂
I’ve included a link to YouTube because the video was too big to load on our blog. Hope you like it!
