So about a year ago, I made my very first attempt at a star time-lapse video. You can see it HERE if you want to. While I know how to capture the pictures and edit them in mass quantities, I don't necessarily know the proper way of putting them into a movie. If you watch my video, you might notice all of the compression issues and noise that appears in the movie (but not the individual pictures). I was using iMovie to edit at the time, and I think that may have something to do with it. What program would you recommend using for such a project (I'm planning on trying again this summer)? And what's the best way of grouping the photographs into individual clips?
