the only problem i am seeing is that when i try to render a video at 1fps of just over 43000 images, it chokes about 3 hours in and just uses the same image over and over again for the rest of the movie. (i am attempting to take a 12 hour output of a security camera and make it into a movie. )

I must be over- or under-thinking this because no matter how I set Time Lapse Assembler 1.5.3 on my OS 10.6.8 iMac to convert 48 JPEG photos of my son’s 1st grade Christmas singalong into a movie (whether at 30, 24 or 0.5 fps, Resized and/or Rescaled or not, and at any Quality), I get a 3.5–12 MB .mov file that zips from start to finish in no more than 2 seconds! What am I missing?

It's quite simple what you're overlooking. You said you only had 48 photos. Well at 24 fps (frames per second) you only have enough material to cover exactly 2 seconds. You will need to have taken a lot more pictures as in 24 frames in a second. What you might be looking for is more of a slide show, where each picture is up for a few seconds each. That is not the purpose of this app.

I would pay for this app if it did two more things:

- could run in reverse

- could blend images to make the movie smoother ie replicate 'dragging the shutter'

by run in reverse I mean create a time lapse that runs backwards, not export a movie as still images :-)

You can specify reverse order using the command line utility (tlassemble) for Time Lapse Assembler that you can download from the developers web site.

Excellent. I love how you can change the frame rate to anything you want or how you can make raw video files as large as the megapixels of the photos used.

A couple features I hope would be included in the next version are the ability to make a time lapse in reverse order of the photo sequence and the ability to crop a photo to the desired aspect ratio rather than crop.

Other than that this program is excellent.

you just saved me 30 bucks!
anytime anyone does this for me I smile.

Only issue I have has been brought up already, and that is:
when trying to create a video with the dimensions unspecified, it creates a file that is completely black.
A large file at that.

Other than that, this thing is perfect.

One more thing I've noticed, which this is a small thing to point out, is:

when choosing where to save the new file, keyboard shortcut for desktop doesn't switch the text for where it is to be saved, but does save it to the desktop.
so command+D does work.

Does almost exactly what I need. Due the layer order and export function in Photoshop my image sequence is numbered backwards, so it would be hand to choose the order in which the images were shown. Highest number first or lowest number first. I'll find some way of re exporting the images for now. Otherwise an entirely brilliant little app.

Works perfectly running on 10.6.5
Couldn't be easier to use and all features work perfectly with great quality.

Works exactly as it should with a quick rendering of the video.

If your looking for something to add all of your images together into a timelapse video, this is it.

Works as advertised and does so very quickly. One small problem is if I uncheck resize I get a black movies although the file is fairly large. In any event good quality and easy to use while using the default settings. It would be nice to have a 10 frames a second but no biggie.

I am having a problem rendering a timelapse video. When the final video is assembled, the video jumps frames and inserts other frames where they are not supposed to go. The original image sequence does not seem to be out of order. This is the second video I have made with TL Assembler, the first worked perfectly. Anything that I am missing that would cause this?
