[31Aug21] Brief instructions for processing a time lapse sequence.
There's a useful video from Adobe here - https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/premiere-pro/how-to/create-time-lapse-sequence.html
1. rename the files if necessary in Lightroom, in sequence, no breaks, same length. The video resizes to 1920pix.
2. open them in Photoshop, option Image Sequence,
2a. set frame rate (video uses 29.97),
2b. change the workspace to Motion,
2c. reduce the Playback Resolution to smooth the display
2d. can add adjustments to all
2e. can change speed and length. 2f. File -> Export -> Render Video (video uses Adobe Media Encoder, H.264 codec)
3. In Premier Pro - rewatch the video for this section.
That was remarkably easy. I've been floundering in the Premier Elements guidance routines and getting nowhere.
1. 1024 x 576pix @ 29.97
2. 512 x 288pix @ 15fps
3. 512 x 288pix @ 1fps
The frame rated don't change the duration, just displays fewer frames. I need another setting.
4. 512 x 288pix @ 3fps but setting the 3fps in the load rather than just in the render. With a curves layer on auto too.
