Need an image animator like gong!

Post by TheSkyBurner » Tue Oct 23, 2018 8:08 am

I am now limited by browser compression and video compression in my timelapse recordings.

The longer I make my frame count, the slower the timelapse is displayed. If I had a frame by frame image calling script like the one used by the gong h-alpha network I could be showing you guys some amazing super granulation network bubbles!

Unfortunately the .gif format 0ms time delay does not hold when the file is saved very large(this was 187mb). I am trying to work something on youtube but so far not very successful getting the .avi file to encode properly with the correct frame rate or resolution after its gone through the youtube compression (youtube kills .avi format). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlJYmchmhtg

I tried using google drive but the image preview does not allow large .gif files.

Here is a 500 frame time lapse, hopefully it displays correctly for you but I know it wont :(

When displayed frame by frame in a javascript image sequence viewer at full 800x500 resolution, this capture is super impressive. The surface motion is incredible at this wavelength. (with high speed playback.)

Zero delay capture intervals, recorded at 30fps. for 1 hour. Zero processing. Only 10 frames per 500 frame video file were selected and aligned automatically with registax 5.1

I use IMPPG (free) to align and stabilize.
I use PIPP (free) to turn final individual images into an animated GIF or AVI (turn off stabilization). You tell it the FPS you want.
I use Handbrake (free) to compress the AVI to H264 if uploading to YouTube, etc.

Very best,

Thanks guys i will recheck these out a second time,.

I do have hand brake, and i did use PIPP to make the .avi file. I have tried imppg in the past but my computer is only compatible with certain files when it comes to video conversions.

i think the best option for me right now is to learn to simple java scripts / css .

Will the image aligning software have an easier time if the dust bunnies weren't there? I know in the past i've had problems with this.
