Need help to edit your timelapses?
Shooting a simple timelapse is not a difficult task for an experienced photographer. But the editing can certainly be challenging. The workflow is very different from editing photos or videos. That is why we offer to clean, stabilize and render your timelapse photos after you have shot them. To ensure the best result of your timelapses we can give you a short introduction to timelapse shooting and some general recommendations.
Your timelapse photos will receive our advanced post production techniques to ensure smooth and clean footage. Further, some of our visual effects can be added afterwards to create something special for your next film project.

Advanced post production
Footage with high quality is essential in a professional film project. We are timelapse experts and focus on delivering the best quality timelapse footage for your project. Firstly, we shot the footage in high resolution and image quality. Secondly, we use advanced post production techniques to ensure smooth and clean footage. Here are some of the included footage treatments:
- Motion Blur – Applying natural-looking motion blur to smoothing out waves, streams and other fast moving objects.
- Light Stabilisation – Smoothing out colors. Removing annoying flicker and artifacts due to fluctuations in light intensity. Light fluctuations is usually caused by variations in camera or shadows from clouds.
- Cleaning Up – Removal of noise, dust, disturbing artifacts and objects (e.g. birds, people, cars).
- Motion Stabilisation – If needed the footage is stabilized in post production to ensure a completely smooth look.
- Render – Powerfull mashines to render your timelapse. All formats.

Timelapse footage examples
Long Term Timelapse
The most fascinating timelapse technique is Long Term Timelapse. But this technique is also the most difficult to master. At Terralapse, we enjoy the challenge of shooting timelapses over several days, months an even years. Our main focus is timelapses of construction, growing plants and the changing seasons.
A professionally produced construction timelapse is an ideal marketing tool for companies in the construction industry. The timelapse can generate interest and it is at the same time a unique documentation for a project. One of Terralapse’s keyareas is construction timelapse. We shot primarily in Denmark. But if you want us to shot an important project for you then fell free to contact us. You can also read more on our danish website: Timelapsefilm.dk
