Post Tool for grouping many time-lapse takes on single card
After a recent shoot where many time-lapse "takes" ended up on the same card, I was going through the time-consuming task of organizing the files by sequence, when it occurred to me that there should be a tool for automating this process. Such a thing may already exist, but after a cursory search, I decided to make a little command-line tool using Perl. I threw it up on github:

https://github.com/murphlab/takesplit

An example of usage is:

takesplit.pl -i /Volumes/CARD1 -o ~/Photos/2014-01-05-TLShoot > ~/Photos/2014-01-05-TLShoot/summary.txt

It examines the time intervals between all the individual images, and makes its best guess as to how the files should be grouped, creates directories for each take, and copies the files to the directories. It writes a report to output summarizing each sequence's directory, file count, start and end time, etc.

If anyone thinks this might be useful, please give it a try. Feedback is welcome.

Thank you :)

I've noticed that Lightroom has the ability to automatically create stacks of images based on the timing of shots as well, and you can fiddle with the settings until it is able to group the images properly.
