While it sounds like a film you'd see in a seventh-grade science class, a time-lapse video is just a small variation on what you do anyway with a video camera: that is, to compress real time into something more convenient and interesting. Officially, a time-lapse video is one shot of a slowly changing event, such as a flower blooming, that you speed up through photographic or editing tricks. This lesson will show you the elements involved in making a cool-looking time-lapse video, which can be applied to the most unscientific kinds of personal projects.
