Post Shaky Jumpy Time Lapse
Hi,

I've got a client who wants me to do a time lapse of a 100 mile run but because the pictures of the time lapse weren't taken close together and the camera moves around a lot the footage is jumpy as seen here - http://youtu.be/10C8MXSpMG8

But I don't know what I can do, I've slowed it down and sped it up. They want the video to be around 5-8 minutes but theres about 10 minutes of footage at 30fps at 100%.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Chris

while it is a nice idea - I can't imagine watching more than 30 seconds before motion sickness set in - I was going to suggest the microsoft hyper lapse stabilization but - the images are taken so far apart that I don't even know if that would work - some times I think that when people who aren't skilled in documenting events like a 100 mile run (or some such epic event) try to create a "simple movie" they get in over their heads rather quickly and realize that documenting evens isn't just simple - lets face there are no simple fixes for lack of preparation and fore thought.

How come my post got lost? I was just saying the same thing, and suggesting the MS hyperlapse stabilisation.

My other suggestion was to slow down how long each shot is on screen for - say, 1 second, which would give the viewer a chance to register what is on screen, and maybe try fading between them, rather than fire shaky images at the viewer like now. More like how you would display a photo album.

Nothing beats planning ahead! ;)

That is unuseable, sorry.
I'm pretty sure that needs to be set aside.
There is no consistency whatsoever to those shots.
It's like strapping a go pro to a basketball in timelapse mode...

Thanks all your help guys. I've opted to use frame blending in premiere pro and cut out the boring bits and the client seems happy with that.

Thanks again


Chris
