SkyStudioPro is a freeware time-lapse and motion detection application for Windows.
You can use it to capture time-lapse movies using almost any capture device or web cam.
It also features motion detection, you can set it to record movie clips when motion is detected.
Time-lapse photography is a technique of taking a picture every x seconds, and rendering the captured frames in a movie.
When the movie is played back, you will see time move much faster than normal.
“Fast motion” is just as interesting as “slow motion” – imagine clouds moving like a boiling mass, or snow covering the ground at a rate of centimeters per second. You could even see a plant grow in a couple of minutes!
You can also use SkyStudioPro to make stop-motion movies, by taking manual snapshots of a scene.
Use the brand new SkyStudioPro VideoCompiler to make a compressed movie from your saved images.
You can use SkyStudioPro to monitor you camera for motion, and trigger a recording with audio and video when motion is detected. A unique feature is the option to “slow down time-lapse on motion” – this means that when motion is detected, the frame rate of your time-lapse movie is temporarily increased to real-time. When you play back the movie, you will see the time-lapse suddenly “slowing down” to show the moving object.
SkyStudioPro is freeware – you can download and use it free of charge.
There are no limitations to the free version, because there is no commercial version.
