New York : The popular photo-sharing site Instagram has launched a new app that allows you to make timelapse videos using standard video captured with your smartphone.
The Hyperlapse app offers iPhone users a way to make professional-looking timelapses without expensive photography equipments, the Techcrunch reported.
It takes advantage of image stabilisation technology that makes use of movement data gathered by gyroscopes to mimic the effect of ultra-expensive motion stabilisation software used by film studios.
Here, you use a slider to control how fast the video you eventually share will play at, from standard 1x speed (normal speed at which it was recorded) to 12x.
Even at 1x, you get to take advantage of the advanced image stabilisation techniques.
