  • Time Lapse Driving

    Hey everyone. Just moved to Edmonton from Ontario in November. I love making time lapse driving videos, and during the summer, I will be making lots. So far I've done the Henday, and Whitemud Drive. I thought I would share them with everyone here. Let me know what you think!

          It would be fun to see one where you're right on the speed limit, to see how many vehicles pass you and at what kind of speeds.

            Very cool, I can't wait to see more.

            How are you shooting these? I assume a camera mounted in the car, connected to a computer? How often are you shooting a frame?

                Neat stuff! So, what's the difference between time lapse and running a 'film' at a higher speed? i.e. isn't all filming/recording time lapse - discernible vs not?

                Also, for differing contextual information, could you have two cameras or isolate some data and draw a slower speed image (pedestrian, sign etc.) into the full frame view and then accelerate it out?

                  ^ Good point, KC. I didn't realise the OP was going anti-clockwise on AHD till I saw Windermere.

                    And isn't it odd that all the gradients, though we really have no significant ones, seem to get flattened out at those speeds..

                          Thanks for all the suggestions and kind comments.

                          For those of you asking how I shoot them: it's not actually a time lapse. It is a video sped up, but it's a lot easier to say it's a time lapse. I have a GoPro Hero which is a camera that is designed for this kind of footage. It is attached to the hood of my car by an industrial-strength suction cup. It can record about 2 hours of 720p video straight, so I dont need to have it connected to a laptop.

                          As for the suggestions, I will be doing all of those routes in the next year. But I want to wait until the summer for some of them so the foliage is more attractive.

                          Also I want to try to do the same thing for the LRT line. I'm not sure if I'll be able to convince a driver that I can attach it to the front of the train, but we'll see.

                            No, I doubt you'd be able to convince a driver, but you may have better luck if you went through some other means. Maybe contact ETS's PR people (if they have PR people), and see if you can work something out with them.

                              Might be kinda cool if you had a mountain bike, and could attach it to your bike some how, and hit some of the trails in the river valley in the summer. Some nice scenery down there.
