Time Lapse Tips

I have been having a play and trying to learn to use Adobe Premier Pro for creating videos for my time lapse work. This is my first effort and it is to give some pointers as to how to do time lapse videos of the night sky but also utilising the same data to make star trails and still images. In all I used Adobe Bridge, Photoshop, Lightroom and Premier Pro in the making of the images and time lapse in this video. The music was obtained from the Free Music Archive. All of the data was taken over a period of more than a year and amounts to several thousand images being taken in different locations. All the details as to the equipment that was used is in the video.
It is on my YouTube channel at the link below and is available both in HD and 4K for those with a very fast connection and a suitable monitor/TV

Nice put together and colours.

One suggestion I read ages ago about time lapses is to not have any one scene go on for more than 10 seconds. I think that is a good rule as some of the sequences felt too long.

Greg.

Thanks Greg
That's a good point about the length of each clip, a couple of my earlier ones were a bit long. The one at the reservoir was deliberate however, as I was trying to catch the reflections of the stars in the water. That was a very windy and very cold night (-20c) and I was hopeful of the wind dropping which it did. I now aim to get my clips about 10-15 seconds each which is a good ball park figure. This would mean about 250-500 images per clip depending on desired frame rate. Depending on the exposure time this means you may only get time to do one clip in the summer or 4 in the winter on a typical night
I may put a more in depth video together when I've got some more clips including a clip of the gear at work (a time lapse of a time lapse!)
Best wishes
Gordon
