With a time-lapse production,
achieving effective films

The accelerated long-term recording of motion sequences is a cinematic method, which is also referred to as time lapse in film production. In this technique, the frame rate of the camera used is slowed down in relation to the later playback frequency, so that the action or the process in the film is played faster.

In this way, optical changes are recognizable, such as processes in nature, which are hardly or not perceived by the human eye. We at Ximpix tell you how such a video is created and how to use it effectively.

How about a time lapse effect for your short film?

How do I create a time lapse?

Depending on the motif and the intention, time lapse is particularly suitable for demonstrating an occurrence or process. Well-known picture themes are the starry sky or the skyline of a big city. The accelerated playback requires many images or long film shots for such an effect. For example, you can take a picture every 20 seconds for a period of one to two hours, from which a film is created afterwards. As a rule, each second in the time lapse is therefore played with a frequency of 24 to 30 frames per second. For this purpose there is a large number of programs that are used for post-processing, such as Adobe After Effects.

Special cameras are not required to create this method. However, it is useful to use a top quality recording camera in order to obtain high resolution images. Videos can be realized with an externally controlled trigger including a timer function. The continuous shooting mode (burst mode) of a camera also allows you to film good time-lapse recordings. This film method is an elaborate endeavour in which you depend on an expert.

Time lapse for your advertisement film

What is such a time-lapse effect needed for?

With the combination of an accelerated procedure and the camera movement, a filmmaker achieves a breathtaking effect. A subsequently incorporated zoom or camera drive can give the actual time lapse an additional effect. In this way, the foreground can be detached from the background, resulting in a change of perspective. This in turn creates a so-called parallax shift.
