I did some work on my website today and one of the elements I wanted to add was a time-lapse video. If you don’t already have it, the new version of ios has the time-lapse option on it. I’ve tested it out around the house, but it’s so fast that you can’t really do anything fun with the video. I read somewhere that depending on the length of the video, it gets processed into a shorter version. The video I took was probably around 15 minutes total, but after it finished processing, it was scrunched down to a 30 second clip.
This was still incredibly fast and unusable, so I dumped the video into Adobe After Effects and slowed it down to about 1:40. It’s better, but not ideal. Now it looks like a bunch of still shots all pieced together.
Anyways, you can take a look at it on the About page of the website. I thought it would be fun to video the bike ride from my house all the way down to the ocean, so that’s what I did. I don’t have a phone mount on my bike, so I was reduced to holding the phone in my hand throughout the trip. Again, not ideal but it’s another adventure worth trying.
After I finished shooting the video, I took this picture from the South side of the pier looking down toward Newport Beach. The water was warm and the sun shining bright. Great day for an adventure.
