How to Change the Interval of Your Time-Lapse Videos on iPhone

Share This:

If you’re looking to create beautiful time-lapse videos with your iPhone, then you may be wondering how to change the time-lapse interval. This feature allows you to control the speed of your time-lapse videos and gives you more creative freedom when editing them.

Fortunately, with the help of iMovie, it’s easy to change the time-lapse interval on an iPhone. To do this, open up iMovie and select “Time Lapse” from the menu at the bottom of your screen. Once in Time-Lapse mode, select “Settings” from the menu at the top right. From here, you can adjust the time-lapse interval by either selecting a specific speed or entering a custom value.

When setting a custom value for your time-lapse interval, there are some important steps to remember in order to get the desired results. First, determine how many seconds of video you want in total; then multiply that number by your desired frames per second (fps). For example, if you want 30 seconds of 25fps video in the end, then you will need 750 frames total (30 x 25 = 750). To get the interval needed for this amount of frames, divide 7200 by 750 (7200 / 750 = 9.6). The result is very close to 10 seconds; so you can round up and use 10 as your interval when changing settings within iMovie.

By following these simple steps and understanding how to customize your time-lapse intervals on an iPhone using iMovie, you can now start creating stunning videos with ease!

Editing Time-Lapse Speed on iPhone

Yes, you can edit the speed of your Time Lapse videos on your iPhone. To do so, you will need to use iMovie, which is Apple’s video editing app that comes pre-installed on many new devices. You can find it in the App Store if it is not already installed. Once you have the app open, select your Time Lapse video and then tap on the “Speed” icon located at the top of the screen. This will bring up a slider that you can use to adjust the speed of your video from slow motion up to 8x normal speed. You can also reverse the video by tapping on the reverse icon next to the speed slider. Once you are happy with how your video looks, press Done and then Save Video to save it back to your Camera Roll.

Setting Time-Lapse Intervals

Setting time-lapse intervals is a simple process. First, decide on the desired length of your time-lapse video and the desired frame rate. Then, calculate the total number of frames you need by multiplying the duration by the frame rate. Finally, divide the total duration of your time-lapse by the number of frames to get your interval – this is how long each frame will be exposed for. For example, if you want a 30-second 25fps video, you would need 750 frames (30 x 25). Dividing 7200 seconds (30 seconds) by 750 frames gives an interval of 9.6 seconds – which can be rounded up to 10 seconds.

Editing Time-lapse Videos

Yes, time-lapse can be edited. In order to do so, you will need to use a specialized software program like LRTimelapse. This software is designed specifically for editing time-lapse photos and allows you to quickly reduce the amount of time you would have to spend manually editing each individual frame. The program has many features that allow you to easily adjust exposure, white balance, and other aspects of the photos as well as combine them all into a single video. With LRTimelapse, you can create stunning time-lapse videos in just a few minutes.

Changing the Time-Lapse Speed on an iPhone After Recording

To change the time-lapse speed on your iPhone after recording, first, open your time-lapse video in the iMovie app. Tap a video clip in the timeline to reveal the inspector at the bottom of the screen. Then, tap the Speed button. You can then drag the slider right to increase the speed, or left to decrease it. If you want to create ranges within a clip, you can do so by tapping and holding on to a point in the timeline and dragging it up or down, depending on whether you want to slow down or speed up that particular range of footage. Once you have adjusted all of your desired settings, simply tap Done and save your changes.

Duration of a 30-Second Timelapse iPhone Video

A 30-second time-lapse on an iPhone will typically result in a video that is approximately 30 frames per second and lasts for 10 minutes and 20 seconds. This is because the iPhone’s time-lapse recording settings are automatically adjusted to ensure that the final video length is consistent with the desired duration. For example, if you record a 60-second time-lapse, the iPhone will adjust the frame rate so that the final video length is 34 seconds long.

Trimming a Timelapse Video on iPhone

To trim a timelapse video on an iPhone, open the Photos app and tap the video you want to edit. Tap Edit and move the sliders on both sides of the timeline to change the start and stop times. To preview your trimmed video, tap the play button. When you are finished, tap Done and then tap Save Video or Save Video as New Clip. You can also use other editing features in Photos, such as adding filters or adjusting brightness and contrast, to further refine your timelapse video before saving it.
