Hello all.

I was viewing a vlog recently where the vlogger was doing timelapse, not with still photos but with very short video clips, maybe up to one second long. I thought that it looked great. I have searched the internet as much as I can but cant find any info on these sort of timelapses, what they are actually called, how to do them, software required etc.

If anyone could give me a little bit of info on these, or links, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Grant

Here's an example of a similar approach:
https://vimeo.com/1114​87213 (external link)

I did this using Magic Lantern on a Canon 60D, which allows low frame-rate video. I think I shot this at 2fps. The camera just ran for the hours it took to disassemble the shed. I may have had it on AC power supply.

It was shot at 1080p... using this method there is no wear on the shutter. I'll never forget my first conventional timelapse with a new camera. In one day I put over 15,000 shots on the shutter... So now I really like using video for timelapse. Of course you give up the full resolution you can get with stills, basically limiting you to showing the timelapse as shot, without moves in post.

Sadly, slow FPS video hasn't been implemented in Magic Lantern for the 70D. So, I would just shoot video, using the automatic restart ML provides, fill a big card, then would plan on speeding it up in post.

If this is the look you want, it is simply a mater of taking a normal video clip and every 20 seconds of video, cut it up into one 1 second subclips. Delete the other 19 seconds of video, and join those 1 second clips together. This is a very simple concept and editing. You do not have to mess with fps, or time lapse photos, or anything else.

I kinda' like it!

I think Scott's on the right track on how to do it. I do wonder if in the example particular 2 second segments may have been chosen for their action. I'd certainly try that.

You can do this in seconds. Just export your clips through Adobe Premiere or Media Encoder as JPEGS. You can specify how many FPS that you want to keep.

Re-import as an image sequence:

File > Import > Select the first image of the sequence > Tick the 'Image Sequence' box

Done!
