Hi,

I wanted to introduce a new tool today for timelapse. RAWBlend blends between frames, adjusting settings like exposure, contrast, color balance, vibrance, highlights, shadows, etc.,

Check out the 2 minute presentation I made.


One of the best features of RAWBlend is AutoExposure, which can keyframe your entire timelapse with proper exposure in a single click. Even if your camera settings change (aperture, ISO, shutter-speed), RAWBlend will take those into account and calculate the theoretical changes in light - then adjusts for it in your timelapse animation. You only need to process the starting and ending keyframes. In the videos above, I only processed the start and end, doing no adjustments by hand. I think this is pretty cool.

Check it out and download at

Please test it out and let me know if you have any comments or feedback for new features.

Cheers,
Patrick

Looks great! Hopefully I can do some shooting this weekend so I can try it out.

Looks nice! Does it "blend" WB as well?

Looks good, would like to see a version that works with PhaseOnes Capture One Pro software :-)

It does blend WB.

It can interpolate between any of the basic "color/exposure settings" in Lightroom or Photoshop
(temperature, tint, exposure, brightness, contrast, shadow/highlight, fill/recovery, blacks, whites, vibrance, and saturation).

There may be support in the future to animate other settings like vignette, shadow/highlight color tints, and so forth, but those aren't generally used unless for special effects.

I'm interested in this question as well. I'm thinking of changing from LRT to RAWBlend but wanna know the (dis)advantages.

As i got nothing to complain about the software itself, the support is quite disappointing. I've requested a license change (going from windows to osx) 15 days only after purchasing my license and never got any reply. So much for supporting developers. :(

i never used rawblending, I'm familiar with LRTimelapse so i stick to it unless someone shows me some benefits of switching to something else.

i only used Panolapse but ended up doing my pans & tilts within premiere because i don't want to boot up windows just for this.

It looks like at this stage difference is that LRTimelapse can do more.
