Ok, re-uploaded it in 4K resolution. I'm just a freak like that.
Very interesting bvukich. I have seen a few timelaps lately on the forum and I really like this. How does one go about creating a timelaps? Do you use the video mode or do you take a photo every "x" minutes and stitch them in a video after? For the later, what tool is used for this?
Sorry this is really interesting but not sure how to proceed...thanks for the help.
For this particular time lapse, it was a still photo every minute, for six hours. Then I used two linux (also available for macs) commands. "convert" to pad, scale, and crop the images to 1920x1080 (and then re-done at 4096x2304). Then "mencoder" to convert that series of images to an mjpeg video. I initially encoded them in mpeg4, but it looked like garbage, and for a 12 second video, file size doesn't really matter. Plus I knew it was going to get transcoded when uploading to Youtube anyhow, so may as well give the highest quality input.
I can start a new thread with precise commands, and explanations if you would like. (in fact, I think I will)
