We posted about Panolapse the other week; Software that adds motion to static, wide angle time-lapses.
They have now added a RAWBlend feature, which keyframes exposures to enable smooth transitions via metadata.
This is an established problem with time-lapse photography, flickering images due to exposure shifts; there are various work arounds to combat this.
This technique uses keyframing. You simply set keyframe exposures for key points of you time-lapse (usually start, finish and any other points in time where severe shift in conditions occur) and using the metadata from these adjustments, the software eases data changes for in-between frames.
It’s worth noting that this technique is nothing new. LRTimelapse has been utilising a similar workflow for some time, which works great with Lightroom. However it’s great to see plugins like this being brought down in price therefore more accessible to the budget filmmaker.
Here is a sample video made by the company demonstrating how the new plug-in works:
