Making a time-lapse with LR 5

December 02, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It's blustery weather where we are, so I've been having a little timelapse fun to pass the time.

This video was saved at 1080, but would have been faster loading at 720.

The Camera was set up on a tripod with manual settings, except for auto ISO, all the frames were shot in RAW using a plug in intervalometer set to one frame every 10 seconds up to a total of 300 frames which takes about half an hour.

They were then imported into Lightroom where a few adjustments on one frame are made such as cropping to 16:9 and then copied to the rest using auto-sync.

Further settings are decided in the Slideshow module, then the whole 300 are exported at 24fps to give me a 10 second MP4 movie.

I could have also used the built-in intervalometer which is included as part of the Magic Lantern software which I also use on my Canon 6d.
