"interval timer shooting"


Arlington, US
          

OK. So I was playing around a little bit with the interval timer shooting. My question is, how do I turn all of the individual stills into a movie? It's not clear that the supplied software does anything in that regard. Do I need some special software or something?

Yeah, I don't think that View NX can do that. On a Mac I would use iMovie but there are other ones out there for doing exactly that. Just look for time lapse movie makers on google.

actually it turns out the short movie software that comes with the camera can make the frames into a movie. But only 50 of them. More than that and you are out of luck.

So, yeah it looks like you need other software. But at this point I am not sure I will do enough of them to look too much at this point.

Hi Nikon 1 shooters,

In the Dutch café, wblink asked me to share my solution with you. So here it goes

If you have Photoshop CS6 (or an "extended" version of an older release), you can easily make a movie out of a sequence of shots.

* Number all your photos consecutively and place them in the same folder.
* In Photoshop, choose File|Open… and navigate to the folder with your images.
* Click (only!) the first image and tick the option "Image Sequence" at the bottom of the dialogue.
* Click the "Open" button.
* You'll be asked for the frame-rate, choose something appropriate and wait for Photoshop to prepare the video.
* Feel free to add (adjustment) layers and other stuff to alter the appearance of the video.
* To save the file as a real movie (so far it still is a Photoshop "image" that can be saved as e.g. a .psd file), use File|Export|Render Video…

Have fun,
Hayo

Hayo,
I finally got my time-lapse created (it's posted in a thread in the Time Lapse forum) using QuickTime Pro 7. I tried using PS and your instructions knowing that mine might not hack it. My PS is CS5.1 (I think - I don't look at the version data very often), and the controls described in your instructions appeared as though that version of PS would indeed do what you described CS6 doing. And in fact it might have been doing what it was supposed to do, but there was no real time feedback from the application to tell me whether it was done or how it was doing. The same was true with QuickTime Pro also, but I had the foresight to reduce the size of the images via batch processing to save some time.

I will go back and try PS again using the smaller images to see if it really does work.

But above all, I thank you for your post that provided the simple steps that I needed to see to get started.

Hi Tom,

Glad to have been of help!

Regarding Photoshop CS5 or earlier, as I said only the Extended version of these packages support video editing (with CS6, the regular version does support video). If you're unsure which version you have, if you have 3D in your filter menu, you have "Extended", otherwise you have the regular.

Cheers,
Hayo

I use Quicktime Pro. Before that I used a free program called PhotoLapse. http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Video/Other-VIDEO-Tools/PhotoLapse.shtml

I've used the free VirtualDub video editor, although admittedly in a different context to this one.

VirtualDub can read hundreds of contiguously numbered JPEGs or PNGs or TIFs and some other file-types (when they're saved into a single folder), and can export them as .avi files with many MPEG and .avi-compression options, and various frame-rate options.

The VirtualDub interface is distinctly geeky, but the program boasts a very full set of video-specific options. Some of the extra functionality comes with plugins and additional codecs, but it "works" OK, right out-of-the metaphorical box.

(Off topic: I use VirtualDub mainly to create colour-accurate, long-running animated .gifs by first using VirtualDub to "assemble" long sequences of computer-generated .PNG files into (very big!) uncompressed .avi files, which I then feed into the old-but-still-good Microsoft GIF Animator. Due to the deliberately small colour palette in my computer-generated files, Microsoft Gif Animator can compress my 'movies' by factors of ten or more!)
