Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Creating Time-Lapse Movies with Lightroom and LRTimelapse.
- In order to give you a comprehensive, hands-on experience, I've put together a collection of exercise files that you can use. Please keep in mind that these are from my personal collection, so I'm sharing them with you so you can really experience the learning. But I ask that you please don't post any of these files online or use them for any client projects. When you're all done I'd appreciate it if you discard them. Another thing is, in order to get the file sizes down, I had to optimize the files. So, during this course, I'll be working with full raw files and this will really allow me to show you the benefits of working with larger images.
However, I've optimized these raw files as DNG files, digital negatives, for you. In the case of the DNGs, I've downsampled them to four megapixels. This is the equivalent of shooting small raw on a modern Nikon or Canon camera. Most of the images in this course come from a Nikon camera or a Panasonic GH4. But, any camera that shoots raw is going to work. And I regularly shoot time-lapse using Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus cameras. So, all of these give great results, and as long as your camera shoots raw, you'll be happy too.
Please keep in mind with these exercise files that I've had to make a few concessions in file sizes. For the section on importing images, just use one of your own cards to practice organizing. But, you can also just watch and follow along. In any case, I think you'll find the exercise files quite useful. They are a bit large, so be sure to download them in advance right away so you can get hands-on. If you don't have access to these files, just grab a few shots from some recent shoots, and try to get some raw files. You'll really like the benefits. If you don't have raw, LRTimelapse and Lightroom will still be able to process the images, you just won't be able to make as dramatic of changes to really bring the shots to life.
