HDR time-lapse test at sunset.
« on: April 26, 2014, 01:17:33 AM »
This is my first decent attempt of time lapse hdr. I shoot it with a Canon EOS 60D, magic lantern night build, 18-135 mm kit lens and processed in Lightroom, LRTimelapse. Hope you like it.

This should cover most of his work flow, I don't know about the HDR processing

Yes, I follow that technique but with some changes, that one from the link is for the ramp time lapse with traditional single exposure, so:

1  The first difference is that I did that process for all the 3 different exposure(-2, 0, +2) instead of one, at this stage I just leveled them, I didn't apply any retouch. Step 1 of the tutorial.

2  Then I batch process all the exposure in photomatix to produce the hdr in tiff 16 bit format which is the only way to export 16 bit from it.

3  I converted the tiff 16 bit to dng in lightroom, It's boring but lrtimelapse doesn't read tiff... well, actually he does but only for rendering the final video not to follow the work-flow. That's the why of this extra step.

4  I imported the dng in lrtimelapse to create the key-frame and from there I follow step by step what it's show in the tutorial. Step 2 of the tutorial.

This is a short overview, If you have any particular question feel free to ask me.
