Time Lapse Egg Timer Hack

A Twitter friend @MSimmsNZ shared a great article on a Time Lapse Egg Timer Hack, then with some inspiration from @PascalDresse , who did a classroom 360 time lapse, I gave it a go and here is the result.

I used the Splice App to edit, not iMovie, which was a bit different and I really enjoyed using it apart from the music.

    Love it. Using one piece of technology with another to create something new. Also be a lot better than spinning around like it did, especially when I had to do it a few times to get it right.

  2. Love this idea Luke,
    Thanks for sharing…
    We are getting into timelapse with our school camera club…. Just a quick question – what frame rate and playback rate did you use for this clip?

    We have tried to have a bit of a play round with both the recording rate and the playback rate but the images look stuttery…

    I know the rates may change dependent on what is being recorded etc – am just after a starting point.

    Thanks if you can help!

    1. Hey there Chris,
      It was set at 25 FPS and set to take a photo every 2 seconds… not sure what the maths is, but the smooth transition came from the egg timers slow movement and making sure it was secured to a solid surface.
      Was a lot of fun:)

  3. Oh my goodness Luke, you surprise, amaze and inspire me all over again… I just love the way people share ideas and go for it and create MAGIC!!!! LOVE it…..

    Love it! Will definitely put this idea down on my list of ‘to dos’ with my Digital Design group. Putting out an email now to see how many egg timers we have in our school. Luke, I hope you still have time to explore and share when you leave our shores for China

    1. Hey there Megan,
      27 days and counting. Looking forward to it, but could do with some 28 hour days to get through all the jobs I need to get done before leaving.
      Enjoy the egg timer fun and look forward to the results.
