The above has some great looking moving time-lapse from about 45 seconds. I can see that the person shooting appears to be in a vehicle for the tower shot. I am just confused as to how one could achieve this? Maintaining that stability whilst holding the camera in time-lapse mode would seem impossible. Even if it was on a rig or steady-cam, it seems unlikely.

Any ideas as to how this was achieved? Perhaps its stabilized completely in post?

I would love to know your ideas. Thanks heaps

Conan

The handheld "hyperlapse" portion was no doubt stabilized in post. Or rather than stabilized, it was probably assembled by hand in post frame-by-frame from a series of stills.

Sounds tedious... but not really. While some of the conventional timelapse shots are longer, the hyperlapse shots are actually really short, only a second or two... maybe three at the most for the longer ones. If you get in the groove it wouldn't take very long to align/fix 48 frames at a whack in After Effects... or even as Photoshop layers.

Take a look at this Hyperlapse tutorial. Of course, I would just use the Warp Stabilizer in After Effects and save a step:
