Learn how to speed up time and create compelling visual effects with time-lapse photography. Join Rich Harrington in the field as he captures nature's patterns at Red Rock Canyon in southwestern Nevada, and shows how to frame your scene and choose the proper camera settings. He'll show you how to capture great images, whether you're using a DSLR camera and a motorized slider or just a smartphone you have handy. Then join him back in the studio to transform your still footage into a storytelling time-lapse video, using tools like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and Final Cut Pro.

Rich: So, now we need to figure out how long we're actually roll. How many shots are we going to get, and what will the end result be? Now I know that I want 24 frames per second in my finished movie. So, how much do I need? Well, if I need a one second animation, I need 24 frames. But the thing is, is that I don't, I want a longer one. So I need to determine how many total frames I want in the finished movie. And I have 24 frames, and I want to make a 15 frame animation. So I'll just do times 15, equals 360 total frames. That's pretty easy math, but that only answers part of the problem. We know the total number of frames to get our end duration. And, the good news is, is during post production, you do have some flexibility. You can easily extend the duration of the clip by stretching the frames or repeating them.
But it's a pretty good thing here to work with 360 frames, to get my 15 second animation at 240 frames total. But, what's my interval?
