Exposure jumps using Lrtimelapse

Could you maybe post the timelapse clip without any editing? Often helps to see the footage.
So here is a completely Unedited version, which has flicker and the sky is a real pain. No idea what I'm doing wrong when I already got already fairly decent render out it! The screenshots are post initialize and pre render.

The first thing I can see is that you changed the exposure a lot of times. For the kind of scene you did that's a bit too much. But that aside Lrt should be able to fix it anyway...

Cheers Alan. So instead of changing it each time the meter bit drops below, what would you recommend?

When I do sunset i chenge only when the meter goes between -1 and -2 and i'll bring it back to 0. I change only the shutter speed and i leave everything else as it is. On a two hours session you should have 4 or 5 steps and more concentrated towards the end of the scene. It really depends on the scene but that has always worked for me so far

Thanks mate. I was thinking I should adjust the shutter speed everytime it dropped down one if that makes sense? I've not been touching iso or aperture :)

It's not wrong. It's just more work in post and there's more risk to introduce problems. That's it! It's really up to how u feel confortable and what's the best way u find doing sone tests! :)
