Time Lapse is a photography technique that allows you to accelerate a video to and watch slowly changing events much faster.

Events such as movement of clouds, the rising and setting of the sun, animal life, a party with your friends, even individual activities like drawing or playing sports or anything else that you can imagine.

You will see them in a new way and otherwise undetectable patterns will emerge.

Irritated by their ad at the end of every video, but what really p*ssed me off was I set it up to do a time lapse of the Jan. 19-20, 2019 eastern snowstorm, at the rate of one frame per minute, and it recorded just 96 frames and stopped. No reason, no error, just stopped. Needless to say, I won't be buying the pro version. I'll find a time lapse recorder that actually works, thank you very much.

The app is great and very thoughtful. I have only one issue which really annoys me, When set the frame interval less than 500 milliseconds the actual frame interval become like whole one second, in other words you can't go faster than 500 milliseconds (2 frames per seconds).. I thought its my camera who can't take faster images but I abandon this thought since video recording is basically taking a lot of image at short time (30 frames per second) and taking pictures using the burst mode take a lot of images in short times (in my phone its 10 frames per second using the default camera app). So why this isn't working right in this app!

Great little program! I was looking for something fairly simple to create time-lapse videos of my art, and this was recommended. I have used it to create and upload about a dozen videos at this point...the videos are about a minute and a half for 90 minutes of drawing, and it's fantastic. The controls are easy to use, the render options work great (I usually render in a square to make it easy to upload to Insta)...I will be upgrading to the pro version soon to gain access to the other options. It does worry me that the app is no longer under development, so I wonder at its longevity, but I honestly haven't found anything I like better.

What's new

• New Android Lollipop camera mode that includes manual controls and more, to access the new camera go to New Capture - More - "Material" Camera ( Only accessible on Android L )

• Material camera supports full background capture with device screen off or Lapse It on background.

• We worked on the "awesome render engine" and the import video feature to make them compatible with more devices.

If you like Lapse It, please take the time to give us a nice review: it really helps.

Thank you !
