…When dealing with a multi axis system, we're doing…much more than the standard single access time lapse.…We're adding multiple axis of motion along a track or a pan tilt…head to give that extra dynamic movement to your time lapse or scene.…Some of the main things that we look for when we're actually setting up a multi…axis time lapse shot, is you set your start point and you set your end point.…And you have to figure out everything that's happening in between.…In a standard motion time lapse usually you have one axis…of motion, so things can get confusing, but not too confusing.…
Now we're dealing with multiple axis of…motion and everything actually happens in between.…So we really have to take into consideration,…everything that's going to happen throughout the entire time-lapse.…The first thing you have to think about…when having multiple access time-lapse is designing your shot.…It's much different than the standard time-lapse.…You really have to take into consideration all…the movement that's going to happen with your time-lapse system.…
In this course, author Rich Harrington is joined by time-lapse video expert Keith Kiska. Together, they explore the hardware, software, and creative decisions involved in creating moving time lapses, while on location in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rich and Keith detail the types of motion that you can add to a time-lapse video, from basic movement of the camera to left-to-right, sliding, and two- or three-axis movements with high-end, motorized rigs. They also demonstrate hardware add-ons in a variety of price ranges, and show the post-production techniques that yield the highest quality.
