The revolve RAM (Revolve Automated Motion) is a simple motor for adding motion to a slider. It sits right there in the middle of the price range at $400, right between the $200 DIY solution and the higher end motors like the $600 Rhino motion or the $800 Syrp Genie.
Rob Whitworth’s latest flow motion video was released a few days ago and judging by the fact that it’s been viewed over 1.5 million times already, I think it’s fair to say that his unique style still captivates audiences.
Curious to find out more about the kind of production efforts involved in such a project and some behind-the-scenes information, we caught Rob for a few questions.
Read on to find out what gear was used, how long it took to create the project, and how this video compares to previous projects.
Turkish Airlines just released a new video promoting Istanbul, but it won’t take you more than a few seconds to figure out who is behind it.
Rob Whitworth’s signature flow motion technique is always awesome to see and this piece of art is no exception.
If you think the headline is a bit over the top and the video doesn’t actually knock your socks off, perhaps some of the behind-the-scenes photos Rob shared with us will do the trick.
‘Thermonuclear Art – The Sun In Ultra-HD’ is the latest timelapse video released by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and it lives up to its name.
Capturing the sun in 10 wavelengths of invisible ultraviolet light every 12 seconds, and assigning a unique color to each wavelength, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory brings us the images required to create this mesmerizing eye candy.
According to NASA each minute of footage required about ten hours of work, so this 30-minute long video took approximately 300 hours to edit.
Time lapse videos are incredible beasts, especially when coupled with dynamic angles and camera movement. However, purchasing a motion control rig for creating time lapse movies is not always in everyone’s budget. But creating one typically is! In this detailed and uber-awesome tutorial, the geniuses at Make show us how to build a self-contained, motorized platform for panning your camera throughout a long time lapse sequence…for $150!
While the tutorial relies heavily on some technical know-how, the finished product is absolutely beautiful and functions flawlessly.
Every once in a while a volcano erupts and it is always a spectacular sight to see, but Martin Heck of Timestorm Films was able to create a video as magnificent as the eruption itself.
Volcano Calbuco, located in Southern Chile, erupted on April 22, 2015 for the first time in four decades and reminded us just how mind-blowingly gorgeous volcanoes can be.
Watch this 4K video and I bet you’ll be asking for a volcano-view room on your next vacation.
EarthCam started webcasting the activity at Ground Zero just days after the September 11 terrorist attacks, and has since been capturing high resolution images for this start-to-finish time lapse of One World Trade Center being built.
According to EarthCam “Hundreds of thousands of high definition images were captured over the past 11 years and hand-edited for this exclusive time-lapse movie”, and over one million photos in total have been taken between the company’s commemorative World Trade Center movies.
A dedicated team has been attending to the many cameras scattered in the area for 5000 days now and also created the 10-year time lapse video below of the Memorial Museum’s construction.
Time lapse is possibly the best way to show change over time, be it the construction of a skyscraper or an otherwise unnoticeable change that occurs over a long period of time.
The problem with this popular technique is that it usually requires careful planning, a single photographer or a dedicated team and a decent amount of editing. However, a team of researchers from the University of Washington and Google seems to have overcome these difficulties.
The method used by the researchers takes advantage of the endless amount of photos found online, automatically detects popular subjects and edits them into seamless time lapse videos.
Time to get out all the first-person footage you captured with your GoPro, but never touched, as Microsoft finally released its Hyperlapse technology.
Capable of turning standard lengthy videos into smooth and stabilized time lapses, you can expect to see a significant bump in time lapse videos in the near future.
The software is available in one form or another to Windows, Windows Azure, Windows Mobile and Android users.
Microsoft seems thrilled about the release; just don’t confuse it with Instagram’s Hyperlapse app.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft has been observing the sun since 2010 with the goal of understanding its influence on the Earth and near-Earth space.
Using time lapse footage captured by the SDO’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) between 2011 and 2015, Michael König edited this cool video.
This joins a previous video he created using time lapse sequences taken by the crew of the International Space Station which reached over 10 million views and was a 2012 Lyrical Vimeo Awards Finalist.
