    Going to be picking up a Promote Control unit to capture consistent images for Time Lapse work - and was wondering what folks were using for putting the images together into a video. I use Aperture for my photo library management, but haven't tried putting multiple images together into a time lapse.

    Suggestions?

    Late reply, sorry...

    You might head over to the Timescapes fora: http://forum.timescapes.org/phpBB3/index.php

    More discussion over there than here.

    I haven't done much TL lately, in the past I've used a variety of programs and apps, including just Quicktime but one of the Adobe packages seems to be the overall choice.

    I do a batch process in Photoshop to convert the RAW files into smaller JPEG's (2MP), then put them all into Quicktime 7 Pro.

    Quicktime 7 Pro can be purchased here:

    I don't believe the QT7Pro key is included with Aperture, I *think* I got mine included for free with either Motion or Logic.

    My copy is registered to "Apple Pro Apps User"

    If you have it, Photoshop CS6 and CC can merge photos into a movie.

    I've used Time Lapse assembler, http://www.dayofthenewdan.com/projects/time-lapse-assembler-1/, with great results.
