IPTimelapse User Guide

IPTimelapse Screenshots


- End-to-end image capture and processing. IPTimelapse can read snapshots:

             - Directly from your IP camera using http or rtsp

             - From a local file as C:somefolderimage.jpg

             - From a webpage as http:somewebsete.comimage.jpg

- IPTimelapse will archive images, make timelapse video using h.264 compression and mp4, FTP upload images and timelapse video.

- Operate multiple cameras and handle different time-zones.  Enter camera lat/long for correct sunrise/sunset on/off times and timelapse production.

- Add local NOAA or Wunderground or OpenWeatherMap weather to your snapshots as they are captured.

- Set capture on/off time using local Sunrise/Sunset with Latitude and Longitude

- Fine-tune image rotation to square horizon (0.1 deg steps)

- IPTimelapse can optionally "capture" jpeg image files as they appear in a watched folder. Thus you don't need to talk to the IP camera (or any other camera) directly if the camera can send images to a folder. When a new image appears in the folder IPTimelapse will process it. (This option activated under the Help menu)

- Capture at one rate say every 5 seconds and upload at a slower rate say every 2 minutes thereby preserving upload bandwidth while creating an image archive for a smooth timelapse video.

- Launch multiple program instances to control more cameras or timelapse projects

- Can be used as a standalone timelapse software to process a jpeg image sequence

- Add up to 3 watermarks to the image. Set position, scale, and transparency

- Crop images as they are captured

- Crop images when creating timelapse video without affecting original image

- Set jpeg compression of upload image

- Set jpeg compression of archive saved image

- Auto delete archive images older than N days

- Set day of week for image capture

- Thumbnail or thumbnail only upload option

- Image sharpening using "unsharp mask" option

- Encoding features:

- Process images from today only, over a date range, process all images, process from a text file list.

- Process every Nth image to subsample large datasets

- Set a desired playback run time. The software will auto subsample the image set and playback frame rate to produce a video with the set play time.

- Set start and stop time of day for timelapse processing

- Set day of week for timelapse processing

- Set sunrise/sunset for timelapse processing

- Choose one image from each day (say at noon in a year-long image dataset) to create timelapse

- Keep a weeks archive of timelapse video uploads having day of week names.

- Encoding settings for h.264/mp4: Frames/sec, CRF quality, bit rate, Encoding speed

- Starlight option: stack captured images as they are captured in low light to improve s/n

- FTP Options

        - Upload to two separate FTP sites

        - Secure FTP: SFTP, FTPS and FTP

        - Set ports for FTP

- Low bandwidth usage - does not process IP cam stream - only snapshots on a schedule
