Video Time lapse provides the ability to create seamless time lapses with out capturing individual images that require compiling in post. Utilizing video as opposed to still photo time lapse also takes away the wear on your camera shutter that can be expensive to replace if you are doing lots of time-lapse work. This function is accessed via the bottom left hand side of the input menu on the Shogun/Assassin/Flame/Inferno series.
A sequence entry will already be present in the menu and to edit the entry simply touch to highlight it and then tap on the blue arrow at right hand side of the entry. This opens the Edit Sequence menu where you can alter the following settings:
Capture – Specifies the number of sequential frames to be captured
Every – Specifies the frequency of the capture.
For – defines the amount of time to repeat the process for this entry.
Play time – this will display the playback duration for the above settings.
Times can be specified in Frames, Second, minutes and hours
In addition the following options are available for your time lapse sequence;
1) The Add icon allows you to add additional entries to your time lapse sequence. Up to 10 sequences can be added that will automatically flow in to each other.
2) Pause sequences can also be set up to allow the recording to be paused for a specified amount of time with no frames captured.
3) After the required number of sequence entries have been set up an option to apply a smooth transition can be selected. This will apply a ramp between the different sequence entries to improve the blend between differing capture settings.
