Neat Timelapse Video Made in Ubuntu Using Open-Source Apps

Dudu M.mailed in to share a time-lapse video he created on Ubuntu using nothing but free open-source tools and a camera.

“I used gtimelapse (a frontend to gphoto2) to control my camera to take a lot (more then 2000 ) [of photos] using ffmpeg. I combined the images as a video, and made the final touches in Openshot.”

The result is this: –

Pretty neat! You’ll find many of the applications used available to install from the Ubuntu Software Centre.

The GPhoto2 front-end ‘GTimeLapse’ can be downloaded from its project page at sourceforge.net/projects/gtimelapse/
