Mmh, and what if you desaturate the footage, stabilize brightness/contrast and then re-colorize it? Or just stabilize one color component (preferrably red or green)? Or blend in an inverted and adjusted version? It certainly would be possible to create a custom color stabilizer using the sampleImage()expression method and valueAtTime(), but color math is not exactly straightforward and with every sample point the setup would become more difficult to manage...
I'm afraid color stabilize won't work because there aren't any stationary points to take advantage of.
The custom one is beyond my abilities.
Are there any standalone plug-ins out there?
Hmmm -- this seems promising (but it's Windows only)
Adobe compatible plug-in to remove time-lapse flicker
Maybe this for Mac/PC
There is a similar thread on the cow.
How was the timelapse created? Still images imported as a sequence? In that case, go back to Photoshop and run a set of automated adjustment scripts (I have no idea what that means, my photoshop guy says they exists.) If the timelapse was speeded up video, go back to the full speed clips and run stabilize color again. You may need to chunk it up into fifty pieces but that's still better than several alternatives.
Holy Smokes! $800 for the flicker-removal plugin? That must be quite a system!
I'll bet that'll do it, though. :-)
David, it's originally stills. Mind asking your Photoshop guy what the adjustment scripts are?
Auto color, auto contrast, auto levels?

CS3 seems to offer some additional targeted corrections. My guy says: "Any PS wonk can figure it out. If they can't, they're posers."
there is a function called Match Color in PS. There is also a cool doodad in the Camera Raw section called "synchronize" that can process color matching an a folder of images.
