Time-lapse

Sun Working on making a time-lapse video.  Tried making one back in April.  You can see some of that in the video I made for the Gowalla.com/Freelance Whales video contest > here.  It turned out ok for a first try.  But last night learned a new trick that saves so much time and effort.  While I was editing the new batch of pictures I took.  Would manually edit each picture down to 00:00:01 of a second.  To make a smooth time-lapse video you need about 30 pictures for every one second.  After doing this for about 150 pictures.  Got thinking there was to be a better way.  So got looking around in the editing program I use, Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0.  Found and option that lets you set the frames of each picture in the project.  Saved some much time.   One I set that up all I had to so was drag the picture on to the timeline.

Plan to capture a lot of different angles of the sun and clouds or what not.  Mix them together in to a new video.  So far I have three clips done.  One is being “filmed” as I type this.   Trying to get one of the sun moving across the sky.  Using my GoPro HD Hero 960 to make this.  Had the battery die on me last night trying to get the sunset.  So check back ever so often.  Will be posting it some point to the future.
