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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Super*Frustrated ,

Hidden gem that should be in everybody's applications.

I thought this would be good for the odd time lapse recreation until I discovered another use that has it as one of my major programs working with 8mm movie digitization.
Nearly all home movie to digital converters create video with the wrong number of frames per second. I can now dump the inital video to individual tiff or jpgs and using this program reconvert ithem quickly to the same fps as the original camera used. This reults in way superior motion and gone is the "Charlie Chaplin" look. It effortlessly transforms folders of 100,00 pictures into a smooth end video.
Don't be put off by the low price as it is worth way more!

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.

Action Hackson ,

just started to use it

I dislike playing with the buttons too much and this program offers ease of use. I'm still figuring it out but more in the shooting that this software. So far it seems a fun program with quick results. I payed for the app thinking this would reduce the chance of tracking and ads but once i read through the terms of service which contained the usual vauge ness and ambiguities, it seems this was not accompished. That is a little frustrating. One star off for that. Ill re review when i know more still a total newbie.
