2500 Photos!!! All in one minute!

I decided to do my own timelapse filming. Cooked a meal and took 2500 pictures then batch processed, photo sequenced them into a movie. Check it out.

The quality is minimal on this link. All the shots are above HD resolution and look amazing on my computer. I have a HD DV version but it's about 700 mb. I am making a link for it now. Although I doubt anyone wants to sit around for 700mb to download.

Most excellent, any chance of a bit more detail on what/how you did it ?
Is it video with frames removed or stills ?

What's the music?

I likes the look of your fridge

They are all still photos taken with a Nikon D70. It's actually really easy to do. Shoot a few hundred pictures, keep the camera horizontal, use a tripod for most things, download them onto your computer, open QuickTime(has to be QuickTime Pro), go File-Open Image Sequence, Select the first photo, make sure they are all sequentially numbered, select a frame rate, and you have a movie, save in whatever format you want, import into iMovie or Final Cut, edit and mix as you please.

Just re-compressed the file at a higher resolution and bit rate. Looks much better! Although it's about 16mb now





The Artist is Cut Copy, the Album is Bright Like Neon, and the song is That Was Just a Dream

Hello Rogan,

I too have tried this timelapse stuff in the back garden. Bought an Axis network camera over a year ago, fitted it at the back of the house looking out the window.... the server then takes a snap from it once every hr during daylight hrs, and then, presto, just over 8000pics in 1 year all in JPG format.

Since I didn't want to buy Quicktime pro though, I downloaded some free software called JPGVideo which seems to do the job ok - the AVI file it creates is around 3gig, but once rammed through Windows Movie Maker, it's back down to a more sensible size -

22meg of 3min video - it does definately look better on the original (it's on dvd), but for downloading it's plenty sufficient to get the general idea.

I really like the way you walked around the house with the camera though - must have been pretty painstaking to get it right though.... was that a first attempt, or have you tried this before?

-Alex

Hey Alex,

I was walking through the Taste of Chicago the other day where there are more than a million people all in a few blocks radius and thought of continuously shooting with someone I knew walking in front of me. Mixed success, so that night I decided to try again with dinner. I have grand plans for this technique now. Thinking of getting a camera attached to the top of my A frame that can automatically take shots for our next long distance boating trip. I am downloading W.M.P. now so that I can watch your video. A whole year, min by min, wow.


P.S. QuickTimePro is the same as QuickTime Player all you need is a registration #. P2P.......
