Hi All,

In the last year, I wasn't shooting much microstock stuff, because I got passionate about timelapse shooting.
I welcome you to watch the first fruit of my efforts:

Thank You.

@traveler1116, I usually shoot 9 bracketed frames at each interval with my Nikon D3 interval timer shooting. process the raw files in photomatrix pro batch processing (very tricky) not always with success to 16bit tiff files. Than use AE to render the sequence and than GBDeflicker sometime more than once. I shoot on two 64gb cf cards. It takes FOREVER.
@aeonf as I wrote above, I shoot on Nikon D3, usually with the Nikkor 24-70 and the 14-24. For motion control, I use the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly.

So GBDeflicker is the main part in reducing flicker for non hdr videos right?  Will the results be good enough for stock?

Thank you Laurin and runamock,

GBDeflicker is the main part in reducing flicker for HDR and non HDR videos alike (for me). I didn't submit them yet to any stock agency, so I don't know yet. What do you think?

Well it's pretty impressive I'll have to give it a shot.

First of all, this work is fantastic! I think it's too good for any microstock agency that prefers short clips as raw material. Why don't you offer this ready-made work to media or travel promo agencies?

It's lovely and makes time feel very floaty and ethereal (much more pleasant that it feels day to day!). Thank you so much for posting that.

I'd think that with the right scenes - shorter - you could  make some very salable stock short videos with those techniques.

Really nice work there - I can see the addiction of timelapse - its been taking up a lot of my time recently too!

What sort of dolly are you using for some of these shots? Is it working well? 

Any tips on eliminating flicker during sunset.


You can also give this a whirl: http://lrtimelapse.com/ Its great for editing sequences with large transitions in light - best if you're shooting in manual and adjust in a few stages through the shoot. Its also very handy for doing panning or zoom-in effects.

I use the  Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly .
It is relatively cheap, and working great. But it's another learning curve, first understanding when to use it (always with something in the foreground) and than how...

thanks for the lrtimelapse tip holgs.  That looks like really great software.  I have been shooting in JPG earlier due to the problem of processing RAW's properly and gettnig everything looking nice.  Definitely going to check this out.

Thanks again for that link (and holgs for lrtimelapse). Dynamic perception has some great tutorial videos that helped me grasp how they use their dolly. It also highlighted that to use it one would need to purchase two additional tripods and one additional head (assuming you didn't want to take the head off your existing tripod used for static shots). So when figuring the cost you'd need to add those items in (assuming you didn't have the gear already).

The results are very appealing to me (more so than regular video in many cases)

I was going to ask about the slider too, thanks for the info.  Do you know if other companies have things like this (automatic mechanical movement), I haven't found any from a quick search.

@ Noam, it is surreal and almost otherworldly. Love it.
KOL HA KAVOD!
