Recently we were asked to do the video only for a wedding. As part of the final product i thought that a timelapse of the whole ceremony would be a nice touch. This was taken from a balcony at the back of the church using the 40D.

Thanks very much! I would have loved to use the 5D Mark II for it but needed that for Video. And the video from that camera is just super!

I was wondering, is this a JPEG every 2 seconds or simply a video where you took out a frame every 2 (or so) seconds and pieced them together?

I know this sounds odd, since you and your staff did such a great job of staying out of site. (the video behind the pole and the side shooter way off to the side - plus the isle shooter being out of site the vast majority of the time).

I was wondering if you were to give this t o the client, would you clone out your staff on the finals version? (if jpeg)

Vinnie - I had the camera set to RAW so had to switch out the memory card with about 20 minutes left in the cermony - and carelessly pushed the tripod down about an inch but then tried to recover it to the original position - think I got pretty close before the next image was taken. Ten seconds between images then converted to jpg. The photographer was separately hired so wasn't part of our team. Since this is just a minor add on to the video we won't go to the trouble of cloning anyone out - at least not unless we get a special request. Plenty of work to do with the video from 3 cameras to keep us busy in post.

Thanks
Fred

Fred, how do you do a time lapse with a 40D? is the TC80N3 the only thing you need to be able to do this?

Very interesting and well executed.

Now this is how you keep a Catholic Wedding Mass moving along!

I like the "pack it up and put it away" at the very end with the two elderly parishoners sitting there like nothing had happened.

Jerome - I used a AP-TR3C. Works great.

Thanks for the kind comments. Someone else suggested that they wished they had this for their wedding so that they could sit through this every year instead of the real video!

Yep, I reckon that was the best sermon I've seen :)

You get a cool view when you re-name all the photos from a wedding in Lightroom and in the top left corner the navigation thumbnail flicks very quickly through all the shots. Quite cool to see all the photos taken in a 20-30sec clip. Anyone got a good idea on how to replicate that?

Export all as jpeg into a folder, import in Adobe Imageready with "Folder as Frames," and then export into Quicktime Movie?
