Hi Andres -

That an interesting technique of planting the PiP Object/green screen clip (the girl) over the timelapse video... and using her movements to sync with transitions.

Cap'n Kevin has been doing some nice time lapse videos using his new GoPro - https://www.youtube.com/user/pkwentworth

Cheers - Tony

Hi Tony,
to use green screen and Chroma Key makes sense, but if to look at girl, then she has a shadow and in same size, position, as other people, buildings etc in video. Does it means, that 1. first I make the timelapse video; 2. make the "girl" video, using sun in same position as in first video?
here is another video, with the same technique? On the beginning seems, that I see girls footprints on sand? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZ-E7LCqP4Q

Hi Andres -

Could you please just forget what I wrote about green screens and PiP Objects? That was way off beam!

After a bit of digging around and watching dozens of videos, it turns out that it's a specialised form of time lapse photography called hyper lapse. In regular timelapse photography the camera is positioned in the same place. As I understand it, hyper lapse shooting involves moving the camera over a long distance, to achieve that tracking effect.

A while back, I saw this amazing time lapse shot in Yosemite NP - http://www.projectyose.com/ - where the film makers have the cameras on motion control rigs. The tracking certainly adds a different dimension to regular time lapse photography.

Apparently Instagram has an app for iPhone for assembling hyper lapse videos.
