Timelapse: drawing

Playing with gTimelapse and OpenShot to create a time lapse video with my dad’s camera (mine won’t play nice with the software):

Production was easy as can be. Plug the camera into the computer, unmount and start gTimelapse. Set the photo interval and how long for it to run (2 seconds and 5 minutes in this case) and point it to the directory you want the photos to end up in. You’ll wind up with a series of sequentially numbered photos. Import the first one into OpenShot and click yes when it asks if you want to import as an image sequence. Tell it how many frames per image (5 in this case) and let ‘er rip. I added a soundtrack from the Free Music Archive tracks to sync collection, and Bob’s your uncle.

Edit: replaced Flickr video w/ Vimeo embed because the Flickr upload wouldn’t play sound.
