Time lapse question

People-

I need to create some time lapse footage. The subject is a construction site. One camera position.

The shoot: I'll be using my Panasonic HMC 150 (AVCHD). Its a long shoot, 2 days - up to 10 hrs each day.

The edit: PP Cs4, on my Macbook Pro (dual Core).

End use: Client doesn't know, Probably web video, maybe industrial use on a dvd. Not broadcast.

So what do you think? I have an idea of how the workflow should go, but I want to get everyones take on it.

Im thinking shoot at 720p, import into PP timeline, export every 6th frame as a tiff, then throw it back in the timeline? Then export as what?

It's always good with time lapse to work out how long the shot ultimately has to be. It gives you a roadmap to setting how frequently you have to get a shot.

If possible, you may want to consider using a DSLR to do this. Many have settings to take a shot at set intervals. The larger picture size comes in pretty handy, too.

Dave & everyone

Thanks! The client doesn't know how long I will have to film or what they are going to use the footage for or how long the final product will be. So I am thinking play it safe and just film the entire thing in real time so that I can have some flexibility later.

Sound good? Sound crazy?

Sounds like you'll need a boatload of storage. Hope you have it!
