Wow, this app is so easy to use. I had success on my first try. Just put your time-lapse images into a folder and select it as your source and you're ready to go. You choose the resolution and wait for the quick render. Really basic UI but the process is effortless!

*** This app has been really great to use for a quick look at what your time lapse will look like before you edit it in a heavier program, and to rearrange photos if they're out of place. I've loved using it for years, but since updating my Mac to Mojave, it doesn't work anymore. It would be great if the designers could fix the problem with it, cos it's just such a great app to use when it's working. ***

Fails to work every time on Mojave. Very disappointing. I have tried every possible combination and it freezes after 1-minute or less.

Yes I agree. It's very disappointing, failing to work with Mojave. I'm hoping that an update is imminent.

I doubt you will get an update.
I have emailed him a couple of times about it, as it is using depricated QT calls so won't work in mojave.
This is his Git hub https://github.com/dbridges and he did start work on a swift version but didnt get very far, and that was 5 years ago.

Such a shame as I haven't found anything anywhere near as good

It used to work for me, but no longer--probably due to Mac OS upgrades.

There is a command line version on github which is forked from dan bridges version and works in mojave.

I hope this person one day will make a swift app version, but until then I will use the command line version.

I also had success with this app the first time I used it and was pleasantly surprised how easy and quick it was. The fact it is FREE is equally surprising.

After spending over 10 frustrating hours trying to make a time-lapse video with iMovie I found Time Lapse Assembler. It is simple to use, fast, and the end result is perfect! The 15 fps was ideal for my PlantCam photos showing a local lagoon breaching.

Amazing app, but its not all times that iMovie can import the file it creates. Sometimes it work, sometimes don't. Despite the files seems to be always the same format. Any ideas?

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. )

You wrote this comment over two years ago so Im guessing you'll never see this and your project is long past. However, I have to mention that if im understanding what you wrote, you have a 43,000 images from a security camera and you are trying to make a movie of it. If you are trying to render video at 1 Frame per second (fps) then thats a slideshow, not video! Your 43,000 images are going to take are going to take 12 hours to watch! Is that where you got the 12 hours from in your question? I doubt anyone is going to have the mental endurance to look at picture after picture for 12 hours straight. If what you want is a movie (like a timelapse) then you should be doing 24 or even 60 frames per second. if you did 24 fps you'd end up with a 30 minute video versus a 12 hour one.

the camera in question outputs one image every second. if i set the frame rate at 24fps, it interlaces the frames , so when i pause it to take a better look at something, it looks terrible.. I ended up running a ffmpeg script that did what i wanted, and speed up the playback to skip the boring parts.
