LRTimelapse is without a doubt the best piece of software to manage extreme day-to-night and night-to-day transition when capturing a time-lapse sequence. This flicker remover program changed the industry for good and a new version with many improvements has just been announced. Here is what you need to know about it.
What Is LRTimelapse?
LRTimelapse is a piece of must-have software for any serious time-lapse producer. This powerful program works along with Adobe Lightroom to remove the flicker from time-lapse videos, especially in the “holy grail” situation when the photographer tries to capture a sequence with extreme exposure changes such as sunset and sunrise. It allows keyframing and grading of time-lapse sequences in an all-raw-file-based workflow, utilizing the Adobe Camera Raw develop engine implemented in Lightroom. After launching LRTimelapse in you computer, you can select a specific number of key frames in the sequence and edit all the settings in Lightroom such as exposure, white balance, curves, colors, and so on (almost all the Lightroom parameters can be key-framed). Then LRTimelapse will automatically adjust and ramp all the parameters between the keyframe images. The end result is a flicker-free time-lapse sequence.
LRTimelapse 5 is a big upgrade from version 4 but the workflow remains similar. The first thing you’ll notice on LRT5 is the polished user interface. The buttons and icons look nicer and the interface is completely scalable for high-resolution monitors. Seasoned LRTimelapse users won’t be lost but everything is better and faster thanks to the optimization and improved use of multithreading platforms. The program can now handle up to 32 threads.
