GlueMotion is the perfect tool for time-lapse photographers. The application allows you to batch edit, deflicker and assemble sequences of images into time-lapse movies.

GlueMotion has been made to save your time and guide you during the process of creation. By using the included batch editing tool, you will not have to use additional applications. GlueMotion is able to crop, rotate, flip and adjust colors of your photos such as exposure, saturation or brightness. Moreover, the application is able to deflicker the sequences of photos. In other words, GlueMotion will analyze your photos and select automatically the optimal brightness correction for each image.

The application is designed for professional needs. That is why it can handle several hundreds of thousands of images painlessly. In addition, all industry-standard formats are supported. The application can import PNG, JPEG as well as all RAW image formats supported by macOS. The exported movie can be encoded in H.264, Apple ProRes as well as HEVC.

This version has been optimized for macOS High Sierra and later. Moreover, the application is available in 7 languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Chinese). Feedback can be sent directly from the application. In this way, you can contact us for any suggestions and improvements in few clicks.

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.
