Very well done CJI, hypnotic.. Love seeing how things evolve in quick time, it seems to be more obvious how the clouds behave in this format.

Great work CJI, you should be proud of that - it looks great! Anyone that has ever taken time lapse footage before can appreciate the patience that's involved in 4 years worth of footage. Keep up the great work - I hope your still taking photos!

oh sweet as! thats just awesome. the lightnings you got in the time lapse do they come out good too? cuase i was wondering if i could set cam up with the built in interval timer. i dont mind having awesome lightning shots and having the time lapse in 1 go.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad you took the time to watch it.

I agree Bruski. It seems like scale is directly proportional to observed speed. While smaller features are often too quick to appreciate, it does seem to give focus to behavior on a Mesoscale.
I've often been surprised by details that weren't apparent in realtime, and they've definitely helped me understand the effects of some conditions.

Dawoodman; I hear you. I think the forum might go into a collective meltdown for lack of storms. I hope you guys get a great season.

Ben, don't worry, I don't plan on stopping. I hope the weather will cooperate though.
I have to say, I really admire what you've done with the weathercam network. The scope is amazing.
I really appreciate the comment from someone who obviously spends a lot time sharing so many resources with all of us.

Poida84, The individual photos are much cleaner and more vibrant than the uploaded video, so it is perfect for lightning photography. You really don't even need an interval timer, anyway. Just set the shutterspeed, make sure the camera has a "continuous shooting mode", and lock a standard remote shutter down. -that way you won't even miss a second of lightning.
The only drawback with time-laspsing though, is committing to a shot for a substantial amount of time. So anticipation is the key.

Incredible! I enjoyed that heaps CJI, one of the best weather timelapses I've seen (if not the best)

I'm just getting into the whole timelapse thing and finding it very rewarding so far. My videos do not compare to most of the ones in here but thought I'd post them anyway.

This one was never intended to be a timelapse, I was just trying to get video of lightning so I could do some slow motion stuff. I tried splicing out the lightning strikes and putting them into slow-mo but it didn't work very well - ruined the timelapse effect plus the footage is too jumpy anyway. I think it could work with a stable camera, better resolution, and gradual slowmo back into timelapse speed.



Just a simple one in the backyard for practice -

It's very slow, I made a faster one also - https://vimeo.com/54011003



Another backyard one poke -



I really like the little minute details..like the delicate strands evaporating and others condensing. Given me a whole new appreciation of clouds.

My equipment is limited to a GoPro camera atm, which makes it easy...but pretty limited in doing 'close ups' and that kind of thing. I like to leave it running in the backyard while I'm at work then watch it when I get home - girlfriend thinks I'm nuts.

I've tried all sorts of settings but been playing around with ridiculous ones lately like 2 shots per second.

Just starting to figure out encoding, editing, uploading without it turning out a mess.

Thanks for your comments Chris, its great to see others with an appreciation for time lapse.

I have to say that I'm continually impressed with the GoPro range, and had no idea that they had such focal range, (Wide to ultra wide by the look of it). The daylight CGs expose really well too.

Don't worry, girlfriends come around to the idea, you could be doing plenty worse grin

My first Timelapses were manually shot and compiled together as 3 second animated Gifs, but the more you get to know the strengths and limitations of the hardware, the greater the reward you get. I'm forever scanning the skys for anything unusual to try and capture.

I'm with you on the encoding/ uploading compression thing, there really is an art to it.


I look forward to seeing more vids of yours from SA.

Been a while since I've browsed the forums and this thread.. CJI omg your time lapse sheer brilliance! Myself I preffer the higher end speeds to show the dynamics at work. In a whole you couldn't improve on your work.. It's hard to improve on perfect! Must have taken you ages to compile what you have.. Thankyou!

Made entirely from Google street view.

I'm sure some time-lapse enthusiasts could grab the supplied instructions and make their own?

Have to share this incredible video I stumbled across on my Apple TV Vimeo tab.

45,000 frames and I find it hard to describe in words...

Thanks so much for sharing that. Kind of like seeing God for a religious person I'd say.

The great thing about time lapse stuff is source material being such high resolution. Can you imagine that film (it's too good to be called a video :p) in 4k and beyond?

God job Dawoodman. So much fun chasing hey? Was looking for music the other day to go with a video and heard those tunes. Hard to get something to play with facebook/youtube before they block it. Keep chasing man.
