Test of a time lapse scene over Monaco harbour, July 2011.
Software used for initial time lapse creation: Time Lapse Assembler (Mac only).
Timelapse sequence repeated several times with slightly different settings as indicated in the caption subtitles to see if there was any noticable quality difference. Naturally the better the setting the bigger the file size (the largest was Timelapse MC2 15fps 2048px Max @91.5Mb - see vimeo.com/58828192 for that particular clip.)
Photos taken manually over approx 1 hr period every 30 secs to mimic an intervalometer.
Used 2 sec timer to avoid camera shake.
Software used to stitch clips together and add background music: ProShow Gold (PC only).
Will need to double-check the settings used to create the mpg in ProShow Gold but stitching the clips together seems to have smoothed out the slight jitteryness of the motion (which was apparent in even in the highest resolution timelapse clip).
Some Vimeo warnings I got when uploading this clip:
Just a warning…
We have some recommendations for this video:
This video is in 1080p. By default we automatically convert large HD footage to 720p for better playback to other users. If you'd like to have it always playback in 1080p, there's an option for that.
This video's datarate is 60000kbps, which is abnormally high and means we might have trouble converting it or it may take a very long time. For HD video, we suggest you use a lower datarate, typically 5000kbps. Learn more about our recommended HD settings.
This video is over 30 frames per second. To optimize playback for other users, we'll automatically convert it to 30 FPS for you. In the future, you can reduce file size and speed up this upload process by using a more standard frame rate. Check out our Compression Guidelines for more information.
