Info by Laan Labs:

Here are some cool time lapse ideas anyone can do:

• Make a road trip time lapse
• Watch fruit rot away
• Take one picture of yourself every day for a year!
• Point it at the sky and watch how the clouds move


Features:

- Create and add to multiple time lapse projects simultaneously

- Edit individual frames: capture a bad image and want to delete it? no problem!

- Add a time stamp to each frame in your video - just like a real security camera, you can see what time each frame was captured, great for sound capture mode.

- Add free music tracks to your video with one click

- Render your video at different frame rates and resolutions.

- Capture frames at any resolution, over any time interval, set start date, end date, plus lots of other options.

- Submit your video to our gallery and watch other people's videos from within the app
I was using until now iMotion (was free, now US$.99, App Store Link)—quite okay but iTimeLapse Pro seems to be much better, more features. Manufacturer's website with good and inspiring sample videos.

Try it out, it's really easy. Make some funny stop motion or impressive time laps videos, add music and share them.

Get it as soon as possible! (I am testing right now.) iTimeLapse Pro is a good candidate for a price change... ;)

Edit: I guessed it! They changed the text some minutes ago in the US App Store:

** FREE for 2 days ** - get it now before the price goes to $2.99 - if you like it, help us out with a review!

Its a brilliant app for making time lapse videos. Highly recommended even if it wasn't free.

My very first and quick test of iTimeLapse Pro. Mounted my iPhone provisionally on a chair-back and shot the look out of the window:

Wandering Shadows, Six Hours of November in Vienna



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBqlnFpK78I



Resolution was set to 1200x1600 (highest possible for iPhone 3G) and I let it render during taking photos (you can't edit it later with this option). Forgot to set render options, so the result is only 480x640 @ 16 fps. Set to 1000 frames initially but I stopped manually after 400 or so. Didn't add any music (maybe later via YouTube). Upload to YouTube easy and in no time.

You can see the settings of a project at any time:



Little drawback: Import in iPhoto not possible (have a look at the screenshot, maybe I'll try that later again):

It seems like a nice little app. I've not created anything of value with it yet, but it can sit on my phone until I'm ready!

It has crashed on me a few times (during shooting) which is a bit of an issue - especially as I have a 3GS - I'd imagine it'll not be very stable on a 3G or lower.

I didn't even know that my good old iPhone 3G can produce HD video! Now my rendering settings were okay, added music with the app, here you have another look of 20 seconds in the streets of Vienna:

iPhoto import not possible no matter what resolution on record or on rendering. A bit buggy maybe—but hey it's v1. Get it. iTimelapse Pro is still free.

Anybody know how to SSH it to your computer? I can't find the file in SSH..
Sorry. No jailbreak here.

You obviously can export to camera roll (or watch on iPhone or email) only 640x480 (enough for touchscreen) rendered movies. The export from camera roll to Mac via iPhoto is unreliable. I use the iPhone Explorer instead (free for Mac and PC, get it here), and Laan Labs recommends "Image Capture".

But you can render high resolution (3G: max 1600x1200) movies even on an iPhone 3G (needs 12 minutes for 100 images) and upload the HD video to YouTube (that is the only thing you can do with that file—maybe jb helps here).

Here another example that I shot yesterday. A trip with a streetcar through Vienna in one minute.

Recorded 825 images 1600x1200, that makes 322,5 MB storage space on the iPhone. One frame per second. 1.5 hours in realtime.

Rendering to 14 frames per second in the same resolution took 94 minutes and the movie file has 110 MB. Upload to YouTube needed 12 minutes via Wi-Fi. Music and titled added at YouTube.

Attachments: iPhone as a time lapse HD video camera in the streets and in the streetcar (tram) mounted with some Gorillapods.
