Most commonly, a “time lapse video” refers to an accelerated recording of a scene. These types of sped up sequences are often used in movies and documentaries to show a lengthy process, such as the building of a bridge, or to provide extra drama like a quickly developing thunderstorm. Now you can do the same thing for your own movies using iLapse.
By default, most options are set to manual with the capture rate being one frame per second and playback being 25 frames per second. For more control, just pull the toolbar to modify the frame and capture rates as well as durations. Not only can you set an automated stopping point for the full duration of the video, you can set session limits as well.
If that was the entirety of iLapse, it would still be a very useful and fun app. However, MEA Mobile has added a second capability, photo blending. Still utilizing sequenced capturing, the blend function can create a mesmerizing ghosting effect and more by layering similar images and mixing them in different ways to create still image art.
Once the photos have been captured, select the ones you’re interested in merging, and then one of the 14 effects. Each effect has a live preview and the original photos are not modified. In addition, iLapse has a built-in library for processed photos, therefore, you can view and compare previous blends without switching apps.
