It’s most interesting to watch the HD version in full screen.
I shot this time-lapse from the 10th floor at 4th and Madison downtown Seattle. On the right is the Seattle Public Library designed by Rem Koolhaas. Kool name!
I made this with a goPro camera set to take 1 frame per second. The goPro saves the frames as a stack of .jpg’s which I compiled into a .mov file using a free utility by Dan called Time Lapse Assembler.
Quicktime used to let you assemble image sequences into movies, but for some reason, Apple took this away and made it a “Pro” feature. I suppose too many amateurs were making time-lapses.
I opened the .mov file in iMovie, added the soundtrack and exported it as an MPEG4.
Here is a shot from the other side of the building Also on Flickr
Here is another shot of the library and traffic, but from up on the 16th floor. Also on flickr
