  • EDIUS: Zoom into time lapse made out of stills

    A nice way to get long term time lapse videos is to assemble a sequence of photos made with a digital still camera (see http://www.tucows.com/article/2058).

    Its even possible to add "virtual camera" movements (zooms, pans etc) to the video: since the resolution of the still photos is usually much higher than DV or HDV, this can be done without any visible loss of sharpness.

    Question:

    Does anybody know how to do this with Edius / Imaginate? Assembling the sequence is easy, but how to add the virtual cam movement?

    3D PIP on a sequence is no option, because of the preliminary downscaling of images to DV or HDV resolution in Edius. And Imaginate is not able to handle sequences...

    Any idea?

    I would go the AE route.

      The only way I see is if the project is for SD delivery.

      You could then bring in the sequence as an HD project & output an HD video file.

      I have yet to work in HD, so I can not tell you exactly, but you could bring the HD file back into Edius and work with it at SD output settings.

      This will give you extra resolution for zooming & paning.

        Good idea, but Edius is the wrong tool for Pan/Scan of really big source footage. Edius may not open non-standard dimension files. If it does it will crush or expand it to fit on screen.
