    Learn how to make a portable variable speed linear dolly / slider motor for shooting timelapse videos that can be used on any slider rig for about $55 AUD. For about $85 AUD you can have a deluxe version with two motors, one for timelapse and another for regular speed shots, USB power and a dedicated 12v battery and charger. Here's a little day trip I did to test the unit out https://vimeo.com/88152086. It rained the entire day, so it wasn't ideal, but you can see that it works! NOTE: Want to do timelapse (or normal speed) panning shots with the same unit? Too easy! Flip the unit on its side and there should be a thread at the end of the drill chuck. Find a bolt that will go from the thread diameter of the outlet from the drill chuck to the 3/4" (or whatever it is) on your tripod head, screw your tripod head on, put on your camera and.... voila! Panning at timelpase speeds, and it'll spin indefinitely. For the full parts list, including links, see http://askdesign.it/weblog/slider, noting that they are all on eBay so if that particular item has been taken down just search for it using the text description and you'll be able to find a live item. The slider used is an 80cm Konova K2. you'll need an intervalometer - I use Magic Lantern on my 6D, a hack which allows you to do intervalometer shots in-camera, but you can buy a unit off eBay for c. $30. Be sure to get one that can take an infinite number of photographs, many timeout at 99 (4 seconds of footage). Shoutout to Style43 (https://vimeo.com/12120373) and Joakim Fjeldli (https://vimeo.com/22337471) for the inspiration. // Shooting Advice 1. Have fun! 2. Put a bit of tension on your sliders bearings and you'll get silky smooth motion, and use fishing line (or any string for that matter) that doesn't have any elasticity or give.

      • Pan

        Pan is a 360+° very slow rotation of a video camera at the shore of a lake in the Finnish summer. I've used an Acuter Merlin head to rotate the camera. (which unfortunatelly wasn't perfectly leveled to the horizon) All the sounds are natural sounds.

          • CalTrance: a Mid-Peninsula Train Tranceportation (ZS3-TZ7)

            Shot through the window of a CalTrain trip heading north through the SF Peninsula. I concentrated on the flow of abstract patterns only, with the train stop giving the eye some rest at a station. Except for token pause at station to create new clip file, there is no video editing. A surprise color blast happens when oncoming train stops while at of the stations. I shot with the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3, and had no idea if the super-blur-pans zooming by would work or not. This was also a test to see if the image would break up, would stall or "crack." Would the camera would give up with this zany progression and render large areas with chunky pixels? To my amazement, this did not happen, and the video produced blurred streaks. Amazing also cause my other video is a disappointing demo of how hard it is to capture normal pans without stalls. I made a DVD of "CalTrance" at standard def, and it plays wonderfully on my upconverting DVD player on the 42" screen. My computer(s) are not up to playing the 720 with much grace. Besides the ambient train sounds, the sound designs uses chillout tracks from http://www.trakax.com. Never used loops before. Choose one "measure" of the sound, then pull on it in the audio track and extend loop pattern as long as you desire. Visual notches help align the beats with other loops. This upload may not be as good as the orig, which was 580 megs. I had a difficult time getting a rendering mode to make it smaller than the wmv. This render took 6 hours. Used Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 9. Taken later that day, I shot footage on the merry go round at Yerba Buena Center, and that shot will feature blurred images. Now want to see how it turned out!

              http://library.creativecow.net/devis_andrew/AE_3D-Panning-Scenes In this follow-on tutorial to his short series on working in 3D space, Andrew Devis shows how to use this simple technique to quickly and accurately pan around large layers/compositions to zoom in to the exact point required each time. You'll use target layers to get the exact coordinates needed for accurate panning - simple but effective!

                  In the summer of 2006, I went to work at the Klondike Gold Dredge tour company in Skagway, Alaska. This is a short film I made about the "cast" of the tour company. I originally uploaded this on Google Video almost four years ago - the days before Youtube would allow videos longer than 10 minutes.

                    I discovered from experimentation with binaural recording that if the microphones move closer to a sound generator (a speaker), it will create a change in volume of the sound within the headphones. Moreover if walking across and moving between a pair of loud speakers it can create a sense of panning also within the headphones. This is "manual mixing". in 2010

                      I took this video with my iPhone to demonstrate a Panoneed and two Promote Controls shooting a spherical panoramic timelapse of me mowing my back yard. The first Promote Control triggers the Panoneed to shoot a sphere, which triggers HDR bracketing on a second Promote Control. The 2nd curtain shutter sync from the camera triggers the Panoneed after each HDR bracket is complete. EQUIPMENT USED: • Panoneed robotic head with touch controller and 2nd curtain sync kit • Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod • Really Right Stuff TA-3-LC-HK leveling base with clamp and hook • Really Right Stuff TH-DVTL-55 dovetail plate on the bottom of the Panoneed • Really Right Stuff MPR-192 rail bolted to the Panoneed (a B2 LR II 60mm clamp will be bolted here soon for convenience) • Really Right Stuff B2-FAB & B2-40 clamps mounted back to back (made obsolete by the better FAS clamp today) • Really Right Stuff BD700 camera plate • Nikon D700 camera • Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 lens (rubber bands to keep the focal length from creeping) • Sandisk 64GB Extreme Pro 90MB/sec compact flash card • 2x Promote Controls • Maha Powerex 2700mAh batteries for Promote Controls • 12v car battery / charger • DROK 12v to 7.5v step down converter to power the camera • Kid's stool to keep the grass clippings out of the battery! :-) POST PROCESSING: • 6,084 photos converted to 16-bit TIFF with Lightroom (after minor sharpening and color correction) • Exposure fused down to 2,028 TIFFs with Photomatix Pro (3 brackets in 2EV steps) • Stitched to 156 spheres with PTGui Pro (13 images per panorama, 2 rows of 6 photos plus 1 zenith) • 5 seconds of video at 30fps (10 seconds at 15fps) • Over a terabyte of temporary storage space during the rendering!

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
