Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video The challenges of using raw files, part of Creating Time-Lapse Movies with Lightroom and LRTimelapse.
- When shooting raw, there are some challenges.…One of the most obvious ones is file size.…You'll note that the raw files range anywhere…from three to eight times bigger.…And depending upon the manufacturer,…this size can vary.…The key here is that the raw file…contains all the information that the camera saw,…while the JPEG discards substantial amounts of this.…For me, the raw file is a safety net.…A lotta times when shooting time lapse,…unpredictable things will happen.…The lighting conditions could change,…maybe quite suddenly, from cloud coverage.…
Or perhaps you're shooting a tough time of day,…like sunrise or sunset, where the lighting conditions…change quite quickly.…By having raw, it's a lot easier to make changes.…And, even if you're tweaking the camera settings…as you go, it's gonna be simpler with the raw files…to key frame those changes…to make those changes quite subtle.…Now, we'll explore that key framing…with LRTimelapse in a bit.…Another drawback of raw files is the write speed.…So if you're shooting time lapses…
