Timelapses from my apartment over Tg. Mures

Hi.
I made three timelapses from my apartmert in Tg. Mures:
1) Red clouds at sunset
Timelapse over Tg. Mures


2) Rain and rainbow
Timelapse over Tg. Mures


3) Sunset
Timelapse over Tg. Mures


These was took with a S5IS with CHDK (using an intervalometer script set to 8-10 seconds/picture). Without CHDK this couldn't be possible. Many thanks to CHDK developers.

L.E. I have these movies in higher resolution (1024x768) for anyone who wants them.

Paul

1 and 3 are very nice, 2 doesn't seem to play for me. You might try Vimeo, Video Sharing For You for higher quality video hosting.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks for sharing. Now I know the rainbow slightly moves over time. That makes even more difficult to find the gold, isn't it?

I liked the second sunset; it has a sinister air on it.

Nice stuff!

What software do you use to create the films?

I have been trying out Photolapse, but the GUI isn't ideal. (Still, it works, and for the price I shouldn't complain...)

For 16:9 mode shots I just say something like

Code: [Select]
mencoder "mf://*.JPG" -mf fps=25 -o timelapse_1080p.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1:vbitrate=16000:autoaspect -vf scale=1920:1080
mencoder "mf://*.JPG" -mf fps=25 -o timelapse_1080p.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=2:vbitrate=16000:autoaspect -vf scale=1920:1080

and sit back.

Sounds good! I'd much prefer a linux option, but I hadn't heard of the -mf flag to mencoder.
I'll give it a try for the next time.

Thank you very much for your appreciation
If you want to get the original AVI files (1024x768) , please recomand me a site where I can upload them. Or it's OK to put there on rapidshare?
LE: The movies was made using mencoder (I use only linux ).
