    guys, was wondering what software do you all use to combine the pics.

    I was wondering whether does movie maker allows me to do it ?

    i find that quicktime pro seems to be the easiest way to do it. just pick the starting image n decide the fps for the clip. then a clip is generated. the file size will be a total of the pics file size i think. very big but very high quality also.

    going to shoot this weekend. it was successful on the first try but couldn't manage the exposure and white balance that well for a sunrise shoot. will shoot something with less lighting transitions.
    you can try virtualdub, is a freeware.

    nice...TS, did you do any "rewind"? wahaha...coz I can't really figure out the big cement truck which came and went reverse

    Anyway, C&C if you don't mind, coz if there's a certain purpose, for eg build up of something, instead of just ppl moving around, it might be better...

    it was reversing into a site actually.

    thanks for the feedback. the building for something might take a bit too long to shoot. lol. i am looking for things with short transitions.

    i wonder how fast a shutter speed i must use to freeze a person n use a 24fp frame rate to get a video type of quality.

    you want to have smooth movement, less jerky, you need to make the interval smaller.
    for mine, I use a ND filter to have slow shutter speed, so all the humans are in moment blur.

    my intervalometer fastest is 1 sec per frame. unless i set it to a faster fps from my camera and set it to run. i will try your method. maybe go out later and shoot if weather holds up.

    set as 1 sec interval. 1/60 shutter speed. 10 fps video frame rate.

    for me, I want all the human to be unreconcilable, so I'm using a slower shutter speed, but may not what you want, the interval time subject to the movement of the subject, the is the recommendation.

    Intervals (time between shots) where do I start?
    -The easiest 'one size fits all' way around intervals is to get them as 'tight' as possible. So if your exposure is under 1 second simply take a shot every second BUT with many cameras (as mentioned in the 'stills or video' section) can't purge the buffer quick enough (especially shooting RAW) so you'll have to make sure your buffer clears before taking the next shot. On the other hand many bodies can do like 3 frames per second JPG continuous if you simply lock down the exposure button (most interval timers have this function).
    -On the other hand you're sucking up memory quickly by going as tight as possible and it can be overkill, so one approach is to shoot some sample frames and scroll review them on camera. This will give you quick feedback on the resulting footage so you can adjust... maybe longer intervals will be fine, maybe shorter will give you what you're looking for...
    -Some ballpark interval starting points to try out...
    Fast moving clouds: 1 second
    Slow moving clouds: 10 seconds
    Sun moving across a clear sky: (wide) 20-30 seconds
    Stars moving across the sky: (wide) between 20-60 seconds
    Sunsets close up: 1-2 seconds
    Crowds of people: 1-2 seconds
    Plants growing eg cucumber vines: 2 minutes
    Shadows moving across the ground: 10-20 seconds
    Note these times can change drastically depending on the local conditions, and the aesthetic look you are trying to achieve, so the best answer is to get out there and practice for yourself to see what works for you. As a general rule of thumb, any tighter or telephoto shots need much faster intervals.

    i will try a faster shutter speed and higher fps and see what i can get.
