How To Add Image Blending In Time Lapses with GoPro Studio

Published

on

Adding image blending also referred to as image burring can really add a nice touch and smooth our your time lapse. In this video tutorial below we go over all the necessary steps on how to easily add image blending to your next GoPro time lapse. GoPro Studio is free and can be downloaded from the GoPro website.

Why add image Blending? Some of the main reasons why you would want to add image blending to your time lapses are.

  1. Smooths out clouds, plants and trees. On windy days you can get a lot of twitching in plants and trees. This can be very distracting and take away for your finished time lapse. By blending the images slightly this helps make the twitchy movements caused by wind less noticeable.
  2. Smooth Water. If shooting a time lapse of a lake or river, adding some image blending can help make the water and ripples appear smoother. Ideally if you want really flat water an ND filter might be a better option. But for some slight smoothing image blending works like a charm.
  3. Ghostly Movement. When you add image blending to a scene that has a lot of moving people or cars it can create an almost ghost like effect of the movement and not detract from the subject you are shooting and want to be the focus of the shot.

Stay tuned as there will be many more time lapse and GoPro Studio tutorials coming soon.

GoPro Hero 6 Black Drive-Lapse Interval Comparison

Published

on

Last year I made a video comparing different intervals when creating a drive-lapse (Driving Timelapse) with the Hero 5 Black. I decided to make an updated video using the Hero 6 Black as it is summer time and there are going to be many hitting the roads and adventuring this summer. This is a good resource to see how different intervals effect the look of your finished drive-lapse. In the test video I used intervals of .5 second, 1 second, 2 second and 5 second. You will notice in the video that the .5 second and 1 second intervals are most appealing and pleasing to the eye. The 2 second and 5 second intervals can look a bit jumpy.

With that said, there is definitely some uses for the higher intervals. For example if you are going on a long road trip and want to time-lapse it, using a low interval will leave you with a very long video when your done. A 5 second interval will leave you with a much more dramatic video that is shorter and won’t bore you viewers.
