I've captured many time-lapse videos on my GoPro Hero 4 since buying it earlier this year and have become a bit obsessed with time-lapse videos. I've experimented a lot with the several settings in search of the best way to capture and edit these files in a manageable way without having the fastest computer at hand. Although the GoPro Hero 4 Silver comes with both image and video time-lapse options available, I found multiple images at a short interval vs recorded video works better and still produces smooth time-lapses. I really enjoyed learning how to use keyframes to add a panning or zooming effect and I mounted the camera to a kitchen timer for a 180/270 degree time-lapse pan.
Storing all my time-lapse videos over the last few months to finally compile them in this one video. They are filmed mostly around Cape Town, but also include a recent holiday on a cruise ship sailing around the Mediterranean Sea aboard Vision on the Seas, as well as two days spent in Venice.
Below are a few examples of the locations you can expect to see in the video:
|Acropolis in Athens|
|A Busy Intersection in JHB|
|Leaving Venice on the Cruise Ship|
|Rialto Bridge - Venice|
I hope to improve (perhaps with a proper SLR camera) and one day get the mandatory shot of clouds filling Cape Town CBD below Table Mountain or wrapping around Lions Head.
Let me know which one was your favorite in the comments below or on YouTube please.
