Post Android timelapse software, any feature requests?
Hi guys, I have been developing a timelapse app for Android on and off for the last 3 years. It's becoming really nice now, but I was just wondering if there any special features people would like? For example something that non of them do but you always wanted. I havent actually drawn up a feature list right now but my app (which will be called "lapsetastic") can pretty much do everything the leading lapse apps can do, and I want to push it just that little further so it's the best one on Android :-). So let me know your thoughts.. Cheers, Gaz.

Manual focus control, or even better programmable ramping focus to change focus between objects.
Spot exposure level control.
Manual exposure levels.
Ability to save all the original photos, not just a compiled video.

Yes manual exposure control! (if this is even possible?)

I have and use, one of the other Android timelapse apps and one of the problems I have with it is the posted capture speed being far less than what it says is possible. Basically I had the phone capturing shots from inside the car while I was driving, every 250ms (so 4 a second). The app allows this, but in actuality is capturing far shorter, more like a shot every few seconds.

Well... look at DSLR dashboard, that's a good place to start.
It's the only app I know of that works WITH an external intervalometer hooked up to the camera.

That is so key. I don't know if there is a way to use the camera's histogram, but that would be faster than downloading images to the phone to review.

The wishlist I have for DD is:

- % highlight blowouts / shadows limiter
- Auto jpeg download (switches camera to RAW+JPG then back to RAW for histogram analysis)
- Faster. It is really slow :(

Something that is basically ramper pro for android.

Hi,
Any news as to when you might be pushing this app out as I'd be interested in seeing/using it ???
Cheers
