My goto settings when filming a sunset time-lapse on a GoPro Hero 5 Black.

Camera: GoPro Hero 5 Black
Mode: Timelapse Photo Mode
Interval: 5 Seconds
Megapixels: 12 MP / Wide
Protune: On
White Balance: Native
Colour: GoPro Colour
ISO MIN: 100
ISO MAX: 100
Sharpness: Low

When filming a sunset time lapses it is best to shoot in time lapse photo mode as this gives you greater control when editing. You can still get a nice shot in video mode, however you are mainly limited to the final output. If simplicity is what your after and you want a video you can share instantly, then time-lapse video mode is your best choice.

When it comes to editing your time lapse sequence, there are many choices. For me personally I use a combination of Light Room and LRTimelapse and GoPro Studio. You can achieve some super crazy awesome results when editing with LRTime lapse and Lightroom, but on the down side it can be complicated and expensive to licence the software. GoPro Studio is free to download, although limited in it editing capabilities you can do some pretty neat things with it and still create an epic sunset time lapse

GoPro Hero 6 Black Drive-Lapse Interval Comparison



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.
