This a short time-lapse video I did in Monterey. I discovered that ocean waves and fast moving elements require a high data bit rate to avoid blocky video compression artifacts and smoother motion. The first part of the video is of boats in a harbor. In normal time I could barely detect the movement of the boats, but when sped up x60 they rapidly bob all around. The second sequence is of a sunset at Asilomar State Beach. I used the HDR technique in conjunction with time-lapse to capture the broad range of contrast. I found that the HDR settings that yielded the most pleasing still photos produced “flickering” (rapid exposure fluctuations) when combined into a video. I got around this issue by using the exposure fusion option in the HDR software.
