Time-lapses are a sure-fire way to captivate and mesmerize your audience. There is just something hypnotic about watching clouds and weather patterns transcending across the open sky. What used to be a difficult process is now quite easy with a GoPro. With just a little bit of navigation on the user interface, you can make your own GoPro time-lapse video in no time.
A GoPro time-lapse will take a series of photos, and stitch them together in a video, making it look like time is moving very quickly. In the olden days, making a time-lapse video was very difficult. It would require taking many, many photos, at a consistent time interval, and then stitching them together in post-production. Today, it is much easier with GoPro. The camera will automatically take photos and stitch them together, so you can set it and forget it. Additionally, time-lapses are easier to alter in post-production than ever before, in large part due to GoPro's software.
After you've filmed your time-lapse, using a professional video editor can help complete your masterpiece. Roxio Creator is such an editor. With this editing software, you can adjust the timing of your GoPro time-lapse clip, crop & trim as needed, and use lens correction to remove the fisheye distortion that is common on GoPros.
