In this course you will learn to edit time-lapse sequences with big light changes during several hours and how to completely remove the flicker from them. This is the ideal option to improve your day to night, sunrise or moonset time-lapses with post-production. You will also learn how to fix common errores during a shoot, for example: remove dust spots, vehicles lights, birds, people that show up in front of your camera and how to stabilize time-lapses. Finally, to improve your shots, you will learn how to modify their speed and make them more dynamic using Ken Burn effects to add them pan, tilt and zoom.
