Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Smoothing out flicker with additional controls, part of Creating Time-Lapse Movies with Lightroom and LRTimelapse.
- With the Bridge workflow, the metadata is automatically updated. If you had made those adjustments inside of Lightroom, make sure you go back to the grid view and save the metadata to the files. Now, I can switch back to LRTimelapse. When I click the Reload button, it'll load in those changes. You'll see it added to keyframes. Now, there's technically no need to auto-transition because I use the same value, but it was important that those other images that weren't processed were adjusted.
So while it technically didn't transition, it did completely apply that application of changes across all the frames. Now that that's done, I'm going to choose to Deflicker. Before you Deflicker, there's a few important options. Make sure you highlight a region that you want to analyze. I usually favor a broad flat surface, and some of the sky. This'll take a look and calculate the values of brightness across the frames. If we pop that out there, you can see that fluctuation.
Once that's done, you've got the ability here to take a look. You can apply a smoothness value. This particular image had a lot of flicker, so I'm going to apply a higher change. And you'll note as I do that, that the green curve is fluctuating more. Now, this means a subtle value change, and if I put less smoothing... you'll note it's more aggressive. So, find the balance that works for you.
All the Deflickering has been applied. If I take a look here at the fields, you'll see they've updated. So, I could choose Save to write the metadata to files. Now at this point, if I return to Adobe Bridge, and unselect my filters, you'll notice that all the images are updated. What's happened at this point, is that they're being processed, and that the flicker reduction is being applied to the images.
