Recently picked up a GoPro HD and have been tinkering with it.  Still kind of working on this video, but thought I would post up the first attempt.

These were taken Sunday afternoon @ KP10, camera snapped 2270 photos over ~3 hours, set to take 1 shot every 5 seconds.  Caught most of the demos I believe, some general flying, and the public fly which came out pretty nice.

Sped up a bit from the original posted earlier.  This one probably looks better viewed in full screen mode.

KP10 time-lapse


Also took some normal HD vids with it, some of Saturdays' demos, other random stuff.  Still going through them all.  Will have to wait 'til next week though as I only have 50MB left to upload this week on vimeo.  Cheesy

thanks,
  Mike

VirtualDub.. takes a little while to get used to, but the price is right (free).  Wink At first I was using Avidemux (also free) but found VirtualDub slightly easier to use.

They seem about equal in power/features, although I'm not really digging that far into the features so far.

I may increase the framerate some and recompile it, then it will feel like you had 10 cups of coffee John.  Huh

If I may be so bold.... try Windows Live Movie Maker (assuming you're on Windows 7) instead. I've used it for quite a few GoPro-stills-to-timelapse-video experiments, it's extremely easy and offers enough options without getting too complicated.

(just remember to edit the Properties -> Details or you get the file path all over the video)

For timelapse videos to look smooth you need to keep to a reasonable frame rate. This one is a little bit too staccato for comfortable viewing and with the speediest setting in MM (0.03 seconds) then those 2270 pictures/frames would come out at just over a minute of video. And what you then need to get is a clockwork egg timer - stick the GoPro on top of it and get a one hour panoramic timelapse video  Grin

Thanks Mike, will try that.  I agree the above vid is a little too choppy.  I probably should have set the GoPro for a shot every 1 or 2 seconds instead of 5, surely would have looked much smoother.

The above vid is only 3 fps, I'm playing with some higher settings right now.  I also found I had the codec quality set a bit too high which was making the file size overly bloated.

thanks,
  Mike

I started using my Android phone and LapseIt for TLV (Time Lapse Video). It's really all in one. I've found that you really need some good action going on. People moving around are the best.

Awesome, Todd.  Thanks for the LapseIt tip.  Never though to do TLV on the ol' Android.

Sorry 'bout that, I removed it to upload the new shorter/faster version but vimeo didn't give me the space back, dang them.  Still at 50mb left for this week so I'm trying to get it to fit into that size, otherwise I'll have to wait 'til next week.

OK.. think I have one that will fit for now, waiting to upload it... should be good now.
