A first test of producing a time lapse moving panorama without moving the camera.
Basically a normal time lapse sequence of images are taken with any camera. Best effect is with a wide angle lens. These are then loaded in Panolapse (available for PC and Mac) and the chosen area of the start and end of the sequence are chosen. The program then produces a new set of still images rendered from the originals. These are then turned into a moving panoramic time lapse using your favourite program, in my case that was the simple PC program Images To Video.
Not the most inspiring of views but it was the only set of time lapse images I could find. Panolapse is not the fastest of programs as it took around 40 minutes to render 788 photos taken with the 350D with a lens set at 50mm. The free version of Panolapse can create high quality renders, up to 1280x720 in the free version.
This is the first of the 788 stills:
The final moving panorama produced using Panolapse and Images to Video.
If interested in downloading and experimenting with Panolapse then go to their web site. On the PC you get a zipped file which needs unzipping in a folder of your choice. No installing needed. It runs straight from that folder. It may well be the same for a Mac.
