As a recovering Leica shooter I have been gradually exploring some of the goodies buried in the menu's of the Nikon D5000.
I had seen somewhere a clip about how to make time lapse videos and so yesterday set out to make one.
Amazing... easy and fun... the camera and software worked seamlessly as advertised...
I set the quality to jpg basic... set the camera up on a tripod, focused and then set the focus to manual... I planed to compress one hour of time into 1- minute... so I set the Interval Timer to 10 sec for 360 intervals. Amazing... just chugged along effortlessly doing what it was told to do.
After the 360 jpgs were shot... I used the in-camera clip creator to make four clips... this I later learned was unnecessary... as I could have imported the shots directly...
I loaded the clips into iphoto and from their imported into imovie... these are Apple products... very low end but enough. I made a title and laid on a tune from my music library which imovie read. I could adjust the color and contrast in imovie as well.
I created a youtube friendly video and uploaded it to our youtube channel... wonderful and fun.
Here is a link to the clip: Lemontree Minute
Next time I'll get the horizon streight... lol.
Cheers... perhaps we could use a "Fun with time lapse" thread. Amazing... all with a low end camera.
