A Summers Day in London: High Definition Timelapse

The movie above is entitled 'London in Summer' we have increased our capture rate to 1 frame every 5 seconds and self encoded the movie to .flv format while we wait for our Vimeo allowance to update.

Moving to 5 frames per second allows for a smoother timelapse although it notably increases processing time to create the movie. Things to watch out for are a rainbow after the clearance of one of the many showers and planes across the London skyline just after dusk.

    Is there any chance of repositioning the camera slightly, to get that anoying TV aerial out of the corner of the frame?

  2. guess all of that stuff was blowing down to Hop Farm in Kent where I was standing in the freezing rain at the HP Festival.

    No rainbow there though

    Any update on the timelapse tutorial?

  4. I really love these high-res films. I'm planning something similar based in a garden and would like to know a bit more about your set-up.

    Do you use any scripts at all process the captured images, or is it something you do manually instead?
