Very nicely done. Was it all timelapse or did you do short bits of video as well? Where in the world was this filmed. Nice cloud action!!!

This was filmed in New Mexico. All of it is time lapse, except for the first shot where the clouds break over the city. That was shot with video and sped up to 200%. The music is a template from garage band on my mac book pro. It is copyright free music. Thank you for the comments.

Yeah, you did a good job. I noticed you had really slow panning for up/down but not left or right. Were you using one of those telescope mounts for that?

I tilted in post. Because of the picture size vs the 16:9 video size i chose to go with gives me a bit of room to tilt with out sacrificing anything.

I've had this time laps video marked as a favorite done a few years ago that is really cool if you haven't seen it already. http://vimeo.com/979938 This guy used a motorized telescope mount to do the needed really slow pans.

Yeah i've looked into those. They sound neat. A guy I work with has a time lapse dolly with pan tilt. But his is legit and costs a bunch.. lol

Straight to sd I have an 8gig class 11 or whatever so it lets me film if it is cool out and it doesn't over heat it will let me film for over 15 min.. That cloud video was only like 1 min long with out it sped up. I was doing a picture time lapse but the clouds moved to fast so I switched to video. To be honest I don't remember if I shot this on the k7. It was when I first got the K7 So I always had 2 cameras with me at that time. So it could have been filmed with a canon HV30 with a mini 35 adapter for my k lenses. Hope that helps. I usually don't ever film more then 10 min at a time with the k7 just because I do short films and most shots are a matter of min. Check out T-RoFilms.com for more of my work.

I dont know what twixtor is?

at 1:48 Thanks, its all real that one I have in 2K resolution.

Nothing is keyed or matted. I just messed with levels.

2:33 is a ir filter on the camera mixed with a polarizer. Some CC to make it blue instead of red

Most of it is up for sell under T_Rofilms on Pond5.com

Thanks for all the tips and compliments.

Thanks I'll have to look into that creative cow thing.
Christopher - I know I just never used anything more then 100 because I just like to avoid iso noise.

If you can afford it, get FCP for your Mac. It's Compressor is very comprehensible and you can task the trans-coding out to more than one computer in a chain if you have a Mac desktop and laptop for example and get all those cores working on the task. I use 3 computers ( 8 cores total) to trans-code my video.

The HDR timelapses look almost otherworldly, very cool stuff.
