Processing a Timescape video taken from RAW images using Adobe AE and Premiere Pro CS6

In this video, I show how I create my timescape videos (timelapse + landscape = timescape) from RAW images using Adobe After Effects to do the colour correction, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. This is the simplest workflow I could find.

NOTE: I hear that Adobe CC CS7.0 will improve the processing speed of ATI cards, looking forward to that upgrade!

RAW images are a bit more work than working from .jpeg, but they offer you more flexibility in post-production. I’ll do another video to cover the RAW vs JPEG advantages and disadvantages.

Timescape Florenceville-Bristol NB Sunset over river with bridge, 4K video from RAW

This is a demo of a Timescape I did by processing some RAW images I took of the sunset over the river in Florenceville-Bristol, NB, Canada.

By using RAW images, I was able to pull out much more details from the trees than I did with the JPEG demo.

There is unfortunately some random flicker caused by flies, mosquitoes, moths, and wasps passing by.

The raw images were processed in Adobe After Effects and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro.

Apple iPhone 4S how to install a SIM card

In this video, I show how to add, remove, or change the SIP card from an Apple iPhone 4S. It’s very easy to do, and should only take about 10 seconds.

Apple Care iPhone 4S broken (stuck) power button warranty experience

In this video I discuss how Apple handled the exchange of my iPhone 4S through their extended warranty.

I called in on Thursday, I received the box on Monday through a carrier who sent the phone right-away, then on Friday I had the phone back. So basically a bit more than a week from when I called to when I got the phone back, and I was only phone-less from Monday noon until Friday noon.

Studio JPIC Photography and Videography Checklist

In this video, I present the checklist I use for commercial photography. This includes customer’s contact info, pre-production checklist, and post-production checklist.

The goals of this checklist are twofold. First: to ensure I don’t forget anything important. Second: it helps show some professionalism.

Canon EOS Rebel T2i a 2013 Review

In this video, I do a long overdue review of the Canon EOS Rebel T2i, but with a twist. Instead of reviewing it compared to cameras of 3 years ago, I compare it to today’s cameras. Does it still have a place in today’s world? I definitely think so. If I didn’t have a camera, I would probably look more into the T5i, but already having this T2i, there is very little benefit to “upgrading” to any of the newer rebels.

Upgrading to a 6D or 5D Mark III would definitely be a possibility, but that would be quite an investment I’m not ready to make.

Adobe Creative Cloud Review

In this video, I do a review of the Adobe Creative Cloud.

I have been using the Adobe Creative Cloud for over 6 months now, and it has improved my workflow quite a lot. I love the price structure – being able to pay monthly instead of a huge chunk, especially since I do both photography and videography, so in the old model, I would’ve needed to fork out over 2500$ for the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection, and over 500$ a year on upgrades.

Sunset over a river, forest and mountain Timescape – 4k resolution

This is a timescape (a landscape timelapse) showing a sunset over the Saint John river in Florenceville-Bristol, NB. You can watch it in 1080p, but I also made it available in 4k for those with such displays.

I will do a tutorial later on showing how I did it, but basically this was my first trial using a .jpg workflow. I will do another demo using a RAW workflow weather permitting.

If anyone can look at this in 4k, please let me know how it looks.

Technical info:
Canon T2i, with kit lens @ 18mm
Aperture: f/11
Shutter speed: 1/30
ISO: 100
4 sec interval between shots
767 pictures total @ 24fps.
