Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi is at it again with the second part to his solid timelapse work in Paris. Paris in Motion (Part II) continues with the stunning scenery we showed you in Part I back in August.
He moved the tripod by hand for 3500 shots that made up this video. And, in some cases, he handheld the camera and moved himself in as straight a line as possible to create the moving timelapse effect.
As you can see in the below video, this movement resulted in some very shaky timelapse footage. However, it was easily saved by stabilizing the timelapse in Adobe After Effects for some stunning results. The large files from the 5D Mark II make it easy to apply stabilizing filters like Adobe’s warp stabilizer thanks to plenty of look-around space provided by the 5K+ resolution.
Thanks for sending this in Mayeul. You can check out more of Mayeul’s work here on Vimeo.
The above video comes from a recent webinar that Tiffen put on with Richard Harrington to show off Tiffen Dfx 3. In the video, Harrington covers some color grading techniques in several different editors that use the Dfx 3 plugin and really shows off the capabilities of this solid plugin.
The more I use this plugin, the more I like it. It’s so very comprehensive and powerful for video, and quick for getting stylized looks from Lightroom on the photo side as well.
