    Hi Darren,

    A few things that I want to point out after watching your short composition.
    When producing B&W timelapses, you have to take in consideration the shadow transition on the ground, when having fast moving clouds, which can give the sensation of flickering (epilepsy).. Always remember to have a balance between light and shadow.
    - Best way to do this in post is to increase the "Shadows" a bit and decrease the "Highlights" and "Brightness".
    - Try to not increase the "Sharpness" and "Contrast" too much.
    - During sunny days, even if there are clouds, try using an ND filter and a lower shutter for smooth cloud movement.
    - Add between 2 and 5% gama in your production.

    This is how I usually work and I hope it helps.
    Go wild. Can't wait to see more.

    Robert

    Cheers Robert. Will have a go with what you suggest. I have some recent sequences where the cloud 'flickr' is quite intense - low & dark. Yep, normally an ND filter is in my bag, and is used.
    I pushed this one a bit to get feedback, thanks.
    More coming, but it takes time. ;)
