Panolapse – Adding motion to static timelapses

Panolapse - Adding motion to static timelapses

panolapse software logo

Our friends over at Planet5D published an interesting article a few days ago. Panolapse, a handy bit of software that adds motion to static timelapses.

The promo video below clearly demonstrates how it works.

A quote from the website. “The concept of Panolapse is similar to 360° panorama viewers. Panolapse uses perspective correction to rotate the camera through a scene over multiple frames to create an animation.”

 The use of fish eye/ultra wide angle lenses is key here to give you space to move within the frame.

Whilst it doesn’t replace the need to motion controlled device, it has potential to add a bit of spice to an otherwise static shot.

The software is free for outputs up to 1280X720, and costs $64.95 for unlimited resolution. It’s available for both pc and mac.

You can do this in any editor like fcp or premiere. no big deal here.

If you can do this in an editor I’d love to know how. You do realise Panolapse adds correct perspective based on lens selection right? You cant do this with lens distort.

Can’t you just add a camera in AE then animate it? Obviously adjust the output resolution. Looks exactly the same to me.

After Effects cant to this. Panolapse curves the image in x and z based on the metadata it finds in your image seq. For not very much money it saves you a lot of time even if After Effects could curve the image correctly.

afaik, AE can’t do this as it doesn’t correct for perspective.

This software just distorts the images. You can do that with a cclens. Or project the panorama onto a sphere in any 3d program(and ae too), move the 3d camera and render.
