    Talking World of Color Time Lapse Video

    Tried my hand at a time lapse video of World of Color. I didn't have the idea to do the time-lapse video until just now, so I had to make due with photos I had shot to edit as stills (obviously not the idea way to do time-lapse). Still, I think it's sort of neat.

    What do you think?

    That's very cool, you did a great job!

    I don't know if this would be useful with only 200 frames, but I think creating a "moviebarcode" out of your images might be very cool.

    A moviebarcode is where you takes the average color of each frame condensed to a one pixel column, like this:

    Tron Legacy


    So you would have an image only 200 pixels wide, but it would be very interesting because WoC has so many, well, colors!

    ^Thanks, guys!

    That barcode thing is interesting. I wonder what a proper WoC time lapse would look like.

    Actually that is how time-lapse videos are done now. More specifically with HDSLR cameras. But there are certain types of adapters people buy that takes the pictures for them every 20 seconds (or whatever your settings are set to) since a legitimate time-lapse function doesn't exist on most cameras. Great work!

    ^To clarify, what I meant by that was that I took each photo with the intention of editing the photos as individual shots. As such, the lapse between each shot is inconsistent.

    Next time, I'll use my camera's internal intervalometer and set it to take a photo once per second and edit them together in a 15 FPS video--that's the right way to do it.

    An intervalometer? Had to look that one up! So, does your camera have bomb bay doors too?

    Pretty cool. I don't know what kind of settings you used, but for time-lapse, I think maybe setting the shutter open longer so you get some motion blur would look cool. I thought it was cool to see the different segments of the show done quickly, but each shot seemed too clean and static. I think the motion blur created if you hold the shutter open longer would fix this issue.

    So there are about 34 seconds of actual timelapse video and you say 200 photos. Are you simply doing 7 frames a second or did you do something more complicated?

    The FPS was between 6 and 7. Ideally, I would have liked it to be at 15 FPS, but I didn't want it to be over too quickly, so I had to settle for less. Next time (and there will be a next time!), when I actually plan on doing time lapse ahead of time, I will make sure I have enough shots to do 15 FPS!
