Time-lapses (images), videos, presets, templates and a script




In this course you will learn to edit great quality 4K UHD time-lapses using several programs and techniques that will allow you to take your time-lapse sequences to the next level. This is the ideal option to learn how to fix underexposed and noisy sequences. You will also learn to fix time-lapses with a mix of color temperatures, advanced local deflicker, how to change a blue sky for a cloudy one, add motion blur and fix corrupt frames. Finally, to make your time-lapses look better, I will teach you how to create a TimeSlice using a day to night time-lapse.
