Cool Timelapse Videos

Tlapse is the corporate YouTube account of GBTimelapse software, who are promoting their product by posting a series of really interesting timelapse films. Favorites so far are: Pumpkin, Watermelon & Bananas, but maybe I just have a decomposing fruit fetish. Although, this one of the world's laziest cat enjoying another productive day isn't bad either.

The Mount Shasta one is pretty fantastic too; the creeping darkness reminds me of the arrival of the giant alien spacecraft in Independence Day.

Wow, that balloon one was pretty neat.

I had a really similar plan to time lapse video one of my cats recently, fortunately for the sake of my cat's pride, my Mac died not to long ago and it housed the magic software.

Maybe I'm simple, but I've always loved time lapse photography.

Cool stuff jonson.

Direct link to the balloon video mentioned by Totally Zanzibarin' Ya. It's worth it.

Thanks; these are lovely. I tried to make some time-lapse films of roots growing with a scanner last year, but gave up when it turned out that I couldn't sleep with a scanner going ZZZT-VRMVRMVRMVRMVRMVRMVRMVRMVRM-ZZZT two hundred times a night.

Gorgeous, if macabe, time-lapse films of animals decaying figure heavily in Peter Greenaway's A Zed and Two Noughts.

I enjoyed the cat video, but I'm a sucker for all cute cat videos. Lazy beast.

Albuquerque Intl. Balloon Fiesta is rockin' too.

The chia homer video is neat but it turns weird and vaguely disturbing at the end.

I never thought much about how a watermelon would deliquesce but I leave a jack-o-lantern out to rot every year.

Thanks for all the time lapse.

So nice jonson. I too love time lapse films and enjoy the artistry of these changing cloud formations, thunder and sunset.

This is great, thanks. It got me to comment for the first time in a while!
