All those cameras mean that we take more than our fair share of photos, so we’re always looking for a new way to create an artistic photographic masterpiece. Here’s one you need to try.
Time Lapse Photos, Meet Editor
Time lapse photography is serious work. You need the right camera (or, the right camera app for your iPhone camera).
Then you need patience. Anything to do with time takes time. Once you’ve captured a time line of photographs, then what?
If you’re looking for yet another photographic tool that’s not in your Mac’s digital camera bag, check out Sequence.
This very clever app is a time lapse editors. It takes a bunch of time lapse photos and converts them to a flicker-free H.264 video.
Upon opening Sequence you’ll see the familiar timeline from iMovie of yesteryear.
Drop your photos into Sequence and use the timeline-based preview function to scrub through the photos.
Options are nominal and the learning curve is modest.
Photos in the time lapse sequence can be rendered and exported in H.264 format or Apple ProRes. Each time lapse can be shared to Vimeo, or through AirDrop, iMessage, or Email.
Sequence can handle most RAW photo formats (whatever OS X can handle), and has a deflicker engine to reduce problems from shooting in shutter or aperture priority.
What you end up with is a video of a time lapse photo sequence that is nothing short of remarkable.
