Time-lapse video is an artistic way of recording things that make you stop and think about the beauties of life that we often don’t notice – the slow movement of clouds in the sky, or the way our planet rotates in the vastness of space, surrounded by countless stars.
Time-lapse functionality is not baked in the stock Google camera app, so you’d need another solution. Google Play store has tons of time-lapse video but very few apps does really good job. I tried couple of apps and finally choose one app which I hope will impress you too with its awesome features.
Framelapse is the best Android app with tons of features and simple interface. The app even comes with a Wizard mode which helps you set the frame interval. This is helpful for when you are not sure what to set it to, but are sure about the video duration. But of course, to not be limited by your shooting length, set your video duration to infinite. This app also lets you control frame interval, video duration, zoom, autofocus, white balance, color effects, exposure compensation and more. Output video from this app of is high quality mp4 format and can be played on any device. This app is considered as the closest alternative to Instagram’s Hyperlapse app on iOS.
The app has a FREE version and a pro version with some advanced features.
Steps to create a wonderful timelapse video with Framelapse app:
- Install Framelapse app from Google Play store
- Mount your Android device somewhere solid and secure. Point it at your video subject.
- Open Framelapse app and tap the trigger button.
- You just need to come back later to stop the recording.
- Enjoy your time lapse video.
