LEVITATE: A hyperlapse and Google Maps experience


Hi everyone,

I've been working on a bit of a different kindof timelapse & hyperlapse project. By spending countless hours meticulously stiching and animating Google Maps imagery, I managed to make a really dynamic and somehow surreal feel to my shots.
Hope you like the result and feel free to share around.

Love it Jonas.

I am really looking forward :
Thanks Darren. Once Earth Studio becomes properly accesible, I will be able to make even better and smoother moves.
I did not know about that.. I was actually taking some days for researching about propper usable 3D Earth-Globe Simulaters even from non-google Developers for that reason. (You know.. for a pimping up my hyperlapses .. especially for the upcoming "movie") You know what I mean? There are some...but of course they do not have this gigantic database as google has. At the end, I would of course want to also sell my [self made 3D Planet - "Animation"-Sequences] and not only the merged hyperlapses, as it would only be half of the whole work. So I am pretty impressed, what you have created and I will keep two eyes on you ;)
