This Android app offers a sophisticated way to create, watch, and share time-lapse videos. Before beginning, you’ll want to adjust the settings to fit the specific time-lapse effect you’re going for. For faster moving events, you’ll want to use a short interval, like 3 or 5 seconds. For something slower, like a sunset, you might want to try 1 or 2 minutes.
Additionally, you can have the time-lapse captured on your Android device’s internal memory or SD card. For shorter time-lapses, you’ll want to use internal memory because of its faster speed/responsiveness. Lastly, you can automatically end the time-lapse by frame #, time, or by manually using the stop button.
As for the render settings, you can adjust the resolution ranging from low (240×160) to high (720×480). For general purposes, the higher the resolution the better, but for very long time-lapse times or for pure mobile playback, low resolution is a size-friendly solution.
After your time-lapse is complete, you can assign a file name to it and save it as either an image sequence (JPG) or video (FLV). You can also select and preview the playback framerate. Then, in the List Capture section you can play, upload to YouTube, or delete any of the time-lapse videos.
Note: Requires Android 2.2 and the Adobe Air Android app.
