It can be tricky to create a great looking time lapse video because of unexpected interruptions and weather changes. GlueMotion is designed to reduce the stress associated with creating time lapse movies by automating image correction and deflickering as it works to create an end result that’s smooth as silk and looks exactly how you imagined it in your head. Plus, this tile lapse tool is compatible with a range of different formats that will suit any photographer, amateur or professional alike.
- IMPORT 100,000+ IMAGES
Although it’s easy enough for casual photography fans to use, GlueMotion was created with the professional photographer in mind. The app is powerful enough to handle tens, or even hundreds, of thousands of images in just about any image format you can throw at it: JPEG, PNG, and all RAW formats supported by macOS.
- BATCH EDIT IMAGES SEAMLESSLY
From cropping and rotating through to exposure, saturation, and highlights or shadows, the app allows you to batch edit your images in a way that improves your end product without the need to spend hours tweaking individual photos or the risk of missing some images out of the correction process. Set one or more keyframes to adjust the temperature and tint and GlueMotion will interpolate the values in-between the keyframes.
- AUTOMATE CORRECTIONS AND DEFLICKERING
Inconsistent brightness levels, caused by clouds or the position of the sun, can spoil an otherwise beautiful time lapse video. GlueMotion’s deflickering engine works to analyze your images and apply the appropriate brightness correction automatically, so you can avoid that unpleasant flickering effect.
- PREVIEW VIDEO AT DIFFERENT FRAME RATES
When the time comes to create your time-lapse, choosing a frame rate can be tricky. The application allows you to generate a preview video with variable frame rates. So you just need to drag a slider to choose the ideal speed before starting the final encoding.
- CHOOSE ANY FORMAT AND CONTAINER
GlueMotion offers a range of containers, including MOV, MP4, and M4V. There’s rarely any need to use additional software to switch between formats. However, the application also allows exporting only the frames or the brightness correction if you need to use another encoding software.
- EXPORT HIGH-QUALITY TIME LAPSE VIDEOS
Even though GlueMotion does a lot of the hard work for you, you don’t want to risk messing up the time invested in your time lapse video by putting out a grainy or fuzzy final product. Thankfully, that’s not a problem — you can export high-quality time lapse videos using H264, ProRes, or HEVC codecs without sitting around for countless hours.
- GET HELP WITHIN TIME-LAPSE APP
GlueMotion is designed in such a way that just about anyone can pick it up and use it, particularly if they have even a rudimentary knowledge of photography or video editing software. However, if something isn’t clear, you can submit feedback or ask questions (including a system profile and console) if required from within the app itself.
- Improved Preview: Add an option to generate the preview videos for only 240 frames.
- Bug Fixed: Fix auto-deleting fields when the app is processing in the background.
Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely worth the money.
As a photograher/videographer I needed a way to merge my photos into a timelapse. There were methods, but none of them we very simple.
So I thought I'd give this a try. It's been well worth my purchase for sure. It's very very user friendly and can set you up with a timelapse in just minutes. I especially like the options for encoding, resolution, framerate, format, etc.
So if you're looking for a simple way to bring your photos into a timelapse without a paid subscription from something like photoshop, I would highly highly reccomend this to you.
Worth every penny
I love doing timelapse videography, but sadly there just hasn't been great software for taking the hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of RAW images I'm shooting with my Sony a6400 and turning them into impressive videos... until now. I've tried half a dozen apps, but GlueMotion is the first one that works perfectly *every time.* Don't be distracted by other apps that lack features, require subscriptions or which are essentially 'abandonware' - GlueMotion is what you're looking for, and it costs less than a typical weekday lunch.
Great time lapse app
After Apple dropped support for Quicktime7 (which allowed the creation of basic time lapse videos fomr photos) I tried some of the chaper time lapse apps on the App Store, many of which hadn't been updated for years and I was disapointed and wish I had just gone straight to GlueMotion which is more expensive but does everything I need a time lapse to do. I recommend this one over the cheaper options. Yeah, it's a bit pricy but when you consider that it is a one time fee and a solid app tht's not so bad.
