TimeLapse is a camera-based screen saver. It requires a camera to work. Once launched, it will start taking pictures at the defined interval. As new pictures are taken, a time lapse animation is slowly built. The screen saver shows the image sequence in loop; as new pictures are taken, the animation gets longer and longer. The playback speed, the interval between every picture, and how many pictures will be stored in the computer, are totally configurable.

The download and author's links are no longer viable. The page has been long removed, and there appears to be no way to download the file from the site (404 error). The links currently take you to the "Colors Magazine" website of the Benneton Group.

It seems to be working fine for me on my MacBook. Very cool!

Conceptually fine however once installed I clicked on the saver and then options, whereby iTunes opened up and preferences crashed.

Back to the drawing board.

Here is the console, I love the WTF! bit haha:

I had the same problem as you were and the screen saver kept telling me it didn't have any pics saved and that I might want to lower my picture frequency. Anywho, checked my log, had simmilar errors as you, most importantly

2006-09-14 01:35:54.241 ScreenSaverEngine[251] CANT WRITE LAPSE TO: /Users/icebrk/Library/Screen Savers/TimeLapse Images/0000000.jpg

I figured it's a permission error so I went to the directory only to find the user didn't have a screen savers folder yet (they all went to the root library) I just created a Screen Savers and TimeLapse Images folder where they should've been and the thing works like a charm. Good luck!
