Thanks for sharing your experience, ahmicelfin!
Everything regarding your video displayed at Vimeo was very impressive.
Besides the beautiful video, what particularly caught my attention was outstanding job with the transitioning immediately after Next Day. Great effect.
Maybe in this thread or another, you could give more details of how you set up the time lapse in this video and its accompanying audio. I would like to address some comments to that but only after more information on what you did for this presentation.
Your eye for the beauty of nature and your technical skills gave for enjoyable video viewing.
Thank you for sharing with us. Glad that you did bring the time-lapse gear!
Glad to give more details.
I shot in Program mode. This was essentially the same as Auto because I had nothing pre-set.
I was in a rush to set up and didn't want to risk losing everything by messing with Manual mode, neutral density filters, etc.
It turned out not to be a bad choice because I ended up shooting in low light. It was a lot darker out than the timelapse shows. The tradeoff was some increased flicker I guess.
Auto focus off, image stabilization off
Exposures went from 1/250 @ f10 to 13 secs @ f3.5.
JPEG in small/fine file size. I didn't want to run out of space on the card. (Turned out I had lots of room)
1 image every 30 secs. It would have been less jerky with a shorter interval, but 1300 images was plenty.
Processing: Back and forth between LRTimelapse and Lightroom. It was all brand new to me so there was a steep learning curve.
Exported to Premiere as mp4 movie.
Audio: I already knew I wanted to use some of the sound track from Koyaanisqatsi, which is in my opinion the most impressive piece of cinematography there is. It really opened my eyes to the possibilities of timelapse, even though, or especially because, it was shot with motion picture film.
The audio was the last thing I added and I didn't take as much care with editing and synching as I should have.
If I did it over I would choose more coherent sections of the clips, apply volume fades, and then time stretch the video to match - easy in this case because there is nothing resembling normal motion in the clips. Maybe learn how to use Beat Detect.
All I know is Glass's music makes a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
Here is a fun video I made last winter that taught me what little I know of synching audio and video. I had a Nikon 5200 duct taped to my helmet. www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9ZlbuNDYS8http
I hope I've answered some of your questions.
