Hyperlapse = time lapse + camera movement. You can get the effect by moving your tripod manually or along a track, but shooting hyperlapse from a moving vehicle is the one guaranteed way to get really dramatic time-lapse footage. And it doesn't take a lot of gear. In this course, Rich Harrington introduces the equipment you need and the techniques you should use to capture great hyperlapse sequences, as he travels around the Nevada desert during the day and captures the bright lights/big city of Vegas at night. When he returns to the studio, he shares his post-processing tips in Adobe Camera Raw, Premiere Pro, and After Effects.

I don't want to unhook the GoPro from the car, because if I do, it's going to change the shot. Ideally, that GoPro is going to stay put for the bulk of this trip, letting me capture the entire trip through a single camera. So, I'll just stop recording for a second, since the car's not moving, and one of the things I could do is actually switch and see what's going on. Right now, I'm getting a live preview. It's feeding my mic back through, so let me turn the volume down, and what I can do here is switch over. So, if I go back, I have the ability to see a thumbnail view.
There it is. It loads up all the shots. What I could see here is every time I stopped and started the GoPro, it's clumped them together based on interval shooting. So, for example, here's the 223 shots from before. There it is, I can see them all. If I tap, it's going to open up that grid. The cool thing here is I am viewing this off of the GoPro over it's built in WiFi connection. So, if I just want to test a shot. No big deal. I can tap that and open up the shot.
Lets me see what's going on. Double tap and I can actually pinch and zoom in and sort of see what's happening there. Which is cool, I can check the shot. Now, here's what I also like. You'll notice there's a Play button on the bottom. It works exactly the way you expect it to. Now, in this case, it's a WiFi transfer, so there's going to be a little bit of a delay as it goes from one image to the next, but I can play a simple slide show and get a pretty good idea of how this time lapse is working. And this just lets me sit back and watch what I'm doing.
All in all, yeah it feels pretty good. I'm going to need to crop this shot a little bit. I can see my scarf that I laid down to cut down on the reflections in the screen there. But the exposure looks good, I'm real happy with it, I'm getting a nice field of view, and I can see exactly what the GoPro's been doing without having to even touch the camera. Alright, both cameras are working, I feel confident. Remember, don't shoot all day long without checking your shot. I popped the SD card, easy to do, put it in a laptop that I trust, and I can check the screen, check for sharpness, really zoom in and see the details, and on the GoPro, I'll just take advantage of that wireless app.
Now, my DSLR Micro Four Thirds also has wireless apps, but not everyone does, so I wanted to show you the card based workflow. In any case, stop and check, and you'll be happy with the results you get.
