Hey, not sure if anyone else here really does any filming or editing.  Thought I would share this.   Looks to be pretty interesting for timelapse stabilization.

This looks like it goes beyond typical post-production stabilization, the cheapest of which simply zooms in and more or less "rotoscopes" against the shake of the camera.

Instead, it's actually patching together pieces of source frames. I would assume that there might be a limit to how much one can speed up using hyperlapse. Because if it's too slow, there may not be enough source material. But too fast, and things would change too quickly to patch together relevant frames.

The rock climbing demo is a telling video, technically-speaking. Watching how the edges change shows another limitation. Still, this is a developing technique. Looks pretty cool!

Yeah it looks like something that's definitely gonna take some time to render.



I guess they plan on releasing it as a windows app.

Maybe with some magic bullet filters and blurry vignettes to cover up the ugly edges, it could pull off some cool stuff with all those crazy gopro videos when Youtube starts allowing 60fps.     But you're right, with some time and programs like twixtor, rotoscoping and a bit of zooming, one could do this.  Probably in the same amount of time it would take to render the Hyperlapse plugin to begin with.

I wish it was out now.
This is about the time of year I am sent a lot of Burning Man footage to chop up. And I was thinking how cool it would be to be able to apply something like this to some of that stuff.  Especially all the drone/bike riding footage.

Here's a kinda interesting example I just stumbled across.

Very cool. Looks like it would only be of good use for terrain.

That streetview deal is pretty interesting ... tried to make one with the demo but it just showed the windmills. Wish I knew how to use the code from github. Seems like it would be fun to play with.

Yeah, if you take it for what it is (a plugin to do artsy interstitial/ montage footage) it's pretty cool. I'd rather have the plugin do it than myself-- rotoscoping is a pain.
