The onboarding process is amazing. Different instrument layers of the song come in as you swipe through the examples.
I have an old VCR with a fast-forward button too!
Weird, but I saw you doing that :/ I remember nudging my girlfriend saying I should do a hyper lapse thing after seeing someone (i.e. probably you) using their camera in a panoramic way.
Great exhibit huh!?
Haha, no way! That is weird. Didn't actually go into the Matisse, we were just stopping by for a quick look around. I hear it's amazing though?
Yeah it's SO good! I actually got emotional going through it, the man was an incredible forward thinker. Very beautiful exhibition!
I was sitting at my desk and created a short clip using Hyperlapse:
It adds this weird "stablizing" effect even though my iPhone was standing flat on the table.
Wow, it actually works pretty good! I was expecting something less smooth - promo vids usually sell utopia
This HAS to be related to what Microsoft was working on... http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/hyperlapse/
Was just about to post the same thing, what is going on here? :/
Microsoft got beat to the punch.
Only thing I can think of is Microsoft owns some of FB and maybe they're the same project.
The dudes that are listed as working on it are different though...
Nope, it's on HackerNews that this project is from one of their hackathons and hyperlapse is widely used term in video.
My Guess is "hyperlapse" is a trend related to a research paper published from a know lab/university and they took advantage of it at approximately the same time, One is bringing it to the consumer right away while one is just fooling around with it.
Microsoft and Facebook are partners, so I wouldn't be surprised if this Microsoft borrowed its technology to Facebook.
Probably not. Microsoft's version is using an algorithm while the Hyperlapse app uses data from the phone's gyroscope/accelerometer to stabilize the video. The Wired article specifically mentions that it would be impossible to do it algorithmically in the app.
As wired quoted, Lots of these shots were only possible with $15,000 rig. But now its possible in your phone. Technology does make certain things like this affordable and taking it to common people. Not sure how many will use, but #hyperlapse will be a trend for sure.
That's not true actually, most of these shots can be achieved with a dslr (or any kind of camera) and a basic tripod. it's just knowing the technique and practice practice practice.. :-)
Still u need those two right? And common people with no skill is our users here. Ofcourse the quality of both of these will be a huge difference.
For static shots yes, but how are you going to walk and do a steady time-lapse with a tripod?
Should we place bet on how many #onmywaytowork #hyperlapse will start showing up on facebook, instagram ? :)
Here’s mine: https://vimeo.com/104495734 ;)
What you can also do is make amazing stabilised tracking videos! (of real time, not only sped up ones)
Has anyone tried it? I'm an Android user but I'm dying to play around with it. Can you upload videos from gallery and can you select your own music?
No to both of those. The flow is: Record video ➞ Set speed multiplication factor ➞ Save (to iOS Photos app) ➞ Share (optional)
I'm guessing they're keeping it super-minimal for the first release and will be adding in features later. You don't even have to sign in with Instagram.
Doesn't iOS 8 have this built in?
Ooh, good point. I remember something about a timelapse in the iOS 8 slides.... wonder if it works the same way (maybe it doesn't have the stabilization?)
It does, but it doesn't have the "stabilization" aspect (unless they are going to add it). It just creates a time lapse that's somewhat choppy, not a smooth single take.
I tested this on my walk to work this morning
I wish it didn't force me to film vertical videos.
That's my only complaint though right now though.
pretty sure it doesn't
you're right i was on portrait lock and when I filmed horizontally it came out turned. -_-
Great. But I can not find it in the App Store... yet.
