The moving time-lapse – hyperlapse – and an example of an Italian one: Trieste


Trieste, a magnificent city already told in time-lapse and reviewed on TLI few months ago .
Today, we want to reward the good work of Andrea – AKA emotionTTL.com – who presents it through the fascinating technique of hyper-lapse

Speedup Trieste – in motion timelapse by emotionTTL.com has been previewed by our friends of TLN Forum a few days ago and represents a successful attempt of execution of this technique.
What is an


Hyper-lapse is a technique which we have not yet talked specifically about on Time Lapse Network.

In summary, it is the realization of a time-lapse moving over long distances (a bit as if it was done on a hundreds of meters long rail).

How was this hyper-lapse made?

It was made with a Canon 600D and for “static” time-lapses Andrea has used a simple tripod and intervalometer, then applying pan and zoom effects in post production with Adobe After Effects.

For sequences in motion however, has always used a tripod but moving between one shot and the other a few inches or a few feet depending on the scene . Everything was possible thanks to the invaluable help of his girlfriend Ilaria, who has dragged the tripod with SLR and objectives for yards and yards with regularity.

So it all went into After Effects and he has aligned the various frames (some scenes, to be watchable, went through up to 4 stages of stabilization, automatic rotation, point, etc.) ..


This is the video we’re talking about, and we congratulate with Andrea: Bravo!

Buona domenica, amici.
