LR TIMELAPSE for RAW editing


Recommended Posts

Most of you who do timelapses will already know this little program. For those who don't it is a program that lets you adjust/batch-process all the Lightroom sliders to a big raw sequence. It saves these adjustment to a metadata file for every single image.


If you are comfortable with the ACR way of editing raw images this is the way to change these on a whole clip, not just having one chance in the beginning of the import. 


The workflow is ofcourse slow, but for those who have a lot of time and want to make some creative stuff I believe this is a nice opportunity. There are different workflows explained on the site.


And one question, I have a d800 and I don't plan on changing to the 5dmkiii since I mostly do photography, don't want to change all my lens gear and don't have time to deal with raw. But since I come from photography I like the way LR/ACR handles "grading", I would like to have all these options in After Effects, the ones in After effects always take a few steps to do the same. I know it should be possible since you can do these adjustments on jpgs in LR, the results are of course worse than with raw but I like the intuitive way of working with these adjustments. Any advice?


Btw, excuse my english, I learned it on the Internet ;)


[edit]Reading what I wrote it might not be exactly clear that the proposit of using LR timelapse is to change ACR settings along the raw sequence, you make keyframes, set the desired settings at that spot and then LR TIMELAPSE calculates the intermediate values. This is interesting for everybody who wants to grade the raws with ACR.
