After my frustrations with creating a time lapse piece at home, I was quite relieved it was a small detail that I’d missed.
I had try to quicken up the interval between frame changes. What I hadn’t realised is that the last digits (00:00:00:00) go up to 25. This refers to frames (European PAL) as opposed to fractions of a second. Therefore, if you want the transition to last for half a second, put in 00:00:00:12 (25/2).
Will be interesting to see how the changes in frame duration will affect the transitions – to be experimented with!
The other aspect covered in the class was saving the final piece.
