My first Bangkok time-lapse! Actually, I’ve done a few time-lapse shots before, but this is my first time-lapse on a motion control rig from The Chronos Project. More about that piece of kit in a following post. There wasn’t anything close in the foreground, so you don’t get any parallax effect, but if you watch the sides of the frame, you will see that the camera was indeed moving. I letter boxed the 3:2 image because I liked the way the format looked for this shot. Here it is, but please change the Quality Setting (click on the little gear on the bottom right of the YouTube viewer) to 480P or higher. YouTube’s compression just destroys motion at anything below that.
Read on for the technical details… and maybe a peek at my setup, for the truly geeky:
