 Q9: How does time lapse work?

Time lapses are a unique blend of photography and videography.

You first capture a bunch of successive photographs of a changing subject, then combine them into a video, known as a time lapse.

When you see the pictures in rapid succession in a time lapse video, it creates an illusion of motion of the subject or the environment around it.

You can easily create a time lapse with the right camera, devices, and software. 

Q10: How to edit time lapse video?

When you’re done capturing photographs for the time lapse, you need to edit them to ensure they are consistent.

Then proceed to the video editing software to create your timelapse, after which you can add delicate touches to the video using different editing options such as filters, color grade, crop adjustment, etc.

Once the editing is done, your time lapse video is ready to be exported.
