Video techniques- Time-lapse

Time-lapse is one of the most spectacular video techniques and the perfect way to deliver your message to social media users with fleeting attention spans. But how does it work?

This video technique gives an accelerated view of slowly changing events. For example, a camera with time-lapse capability takes a series of still pictures or frames, one right after the other (usually 24 frames per second) over an extended period of time.

When the captured images are played back as video, time appears to be moving faster and everything else moves much quicker than normal. It’s like the opposite of slow motion.

The interval of time can be anything from less that a second to a day or more. Because they are an incredible way to show “normal” things happening in a very pronounced way, time-lapse videos are everywhere these days.
