Lapse in Time: Valmiera

With the first snow of in winter of 2012 I decided to shoot and create my first time-lapse video compilation of my hometown Valmiera.
Although freezing my ass, in our rather cold winter nights was challenging enough – I decided to make the task even more challenging, by making it in 4k resolution and achieve it only with free software.

I won’t go deep into workflow of making this video in this post. Rather, I will make seperate tutorial for it in near future.
Everything was shot with my trusty D5100 and ‘Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-S‘ lens. Images were captured as full rez 14 bit RAW files, for more flexibility in post.
RAW files, then were edited and exported as .PNGs by using RawTherapee. Exported image sequences were later edited with Lightworks and finished with VirtualDub.

Here, you can see full rez screen captures from the video with some exif data.
