Panolapse For Moving Time Lapse Video
The tiny addition of a little camera movement can turn a plain old time lapse video into something really special. This can be accomplished in two ways. One, you can move the camera during the time lapse, with the help of a slider or a panorama tripod head. The challenge, of course, is moving the camera in the right way, at the right interval, to create the right type of motion. The other approach doesn't require any hardware. It's a post-production fix, essentially cropping from one area of the frame to slowly, over time, move that cropped area to another part of the frame. This creates the appearance of movement during the recording of the time lapse. This sort of move can be done in video editing programs, but now there's a dedicated software built specifically for this purpose. It's called Panolapse, and it creates the illusion of camera movement in time lapse footage. It's definitely worth a look if you're into making time lapse videos where movement matters.
