/ Time lapse software reccomendations
I have been playing around with the idea of time lapse photography for sunsets and climbing in the Peak District.
What software do you use to stitch the shots together?
I got quite into it and bought LRTimelapse, which is/was pretty amazing.
Then I realised the amount of boring time every sequence involved and gave up
My normal process for time lapse photography is to open up the sequence in Lightroom, make adjustments (exposure, contrast, white balance, etc) to a single frame and then copy those adjustments over the rest of the sequence.
Once the frames all look good I transfer them into Photoshop, which can be used to auto-align all of the frames if there was any movement (compensates for things like vibration) and then stitch them all together.
The menu options to stitch a sequence together and then export the whole thing as a GIF are a bit buried but there are plenty of tutorials online.
There may be some free software which specialises in creating time lapses but I've been happy with the results from Lightroom and Photoshop. I use Lightroom every week so I can justify the £10 monthly fee for their photography plan.
On MacOS I batch-process (if needed) all the pics in Lightroom, then create the timelapse with Time Lapse Assembler (I recall this being free).
The LRTimelapse plugin is supposed to be even better, but seems more work).
Nothing fancy going on here, shoot from a steady tripod (no need to re align pics in post).
Top tip, buy a filter or two to open your shutter longer and create motion blur for moving objects.
