…There's one more type of moving time lapse shot that a lot of folks like.…Some folks call this a hyper lapse.…It's kind of a combination of a time lapse and stop motion.…>> Yeah, basically essentially a hyper lapse is, it's the…same thing as a time lapse but over a great distance.…So, in this instance we're going to go about 150 feet,…some have been known to be, hundreds, thousands, who knows?…>> Yeah, essentially, think of it this way.…What you're doing is you're moving the camera.…So the camera's going to be doing a normal time lapse but…instead of moving say, four feet, we're going to walk down the block.…
Now this is definitely a technique that takes trial and error and…I'm just going to be honest, Keith, we're still figuring this one out.…This is one of those things that's really cutting edge.…>> I've seen a couple examples that are absolutely…amazing and the results that they can deliver are fantastic.…But as of yet, I've never quite mastered it yet.…So we're going to all learn together.…>> Yeah, so hang on with us here as we figure this out.…
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.
