Easy Time Lapse Photography with your iSight
All of us have likely admired the results of a nice time-lapsed sequence, perhaps of a flower opening or the sun setting. Wouldn’t it be cool to do these on your own? With a Mac you can. Gawker is a really fun open source app that allows you to easily create time-lapsed photographic images, and conveniently exports them into movie format for easy viewing and sharing. This is free Mac software at it’s best, but of course donations are always accepted. So use your built-in or external iSight and start having some fun, the results are always amusing.
The interface is simple enough, select your camera to start the process. When you click the Record button, you’ll get a save dialog with various options. If you dig around a bit you’ll also see options for scheduling start and stop times, and even an option to share your gawker feed.
So what does a final Gawker video look like? Be sure to check out this cool example of an artist drawing, found on YouTube:
