Add photos, get a movie. Easy peasy.
While time-lapse photography might look quite complicated, it’s actually pretty simple. You don’t need a video camera, but you do need a camera that has an interval timer (some remote shutters offer this), the patience to stand around for ages shooting each sequence, and some software to turn your folder full of still images into a movie.
Sequence 1.1 does this incredibly quickly—you simply drop your folder of stills onto a big import window, wait a few moments while the software renders a preview of your movie, and then watch as your time-lapse movie plays back. You can export it in any of a variety of file formats, resolutions, and frame rates, as required. Sequence can also tackle one of the big problems with time-lapse movies: the flicker effect caused by small changes in the camera exposure between frames. “Deflicker” is just a simple Yes/No checkbox, and it works quite well.
The bottom line. Sequence 1.1 does the job brilliantly, but $14.99 seems a bit pricey for such a specialized tool. You can do the same thing for free (though not quite so easily) in Google Picasa, for example. But that’s a small complaint when the software works so well.
64-bit processor, OS X 10.8 or later
Really simple. Fast import and export. “Deflicker” exposure fix.
The price is slightly off-putting.
