There are a few time lapse video apps available and now Microsoft Research is throwing its hat in the ring with Hyperlapse. The app speeds up handheld videos and stabilizes them so that you don’t bore your audience or make them seasick.
It’s available for phones (Windows and Android) and computers (Windows).
The app lets you apply the effect at multiple points in a video at rates from 1x to 32x. You can import old videos from your camera roll too. Check out the official channel for interesting Hyperlapses from around the world.
Some of those were shot on GoPros and processed using a preview version of the Microsoft Hyperlapse Pro app for desktop Windows. It varies speed from 2x to 25x and can use CPUs and GPUs for faster processing.
Devs using Microsoft Azure Media Services can also utilize the Hyperlapse technology into their apps.
You can download Microsoft Hyperlapse on any recent Lumia models right now – Lumia 435 and up (though no 520/820/920). Phones with 512MB RAM can’t do HD resolution. The Android version is in a preview stage and you need to join the Google+ community. Currently, the following phones are supported:
Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge, Note 4
Google Nexus 5 & 6, Nexus 9 tablet
HTC One M8 and M9
Sony Xperia Z3
For the desktop version you’ll need Windows 7 64-bit or newer with at least 4GB of RAM (longer videos need more). No iOS version, but you can try Instagram’s Hyperlapse.
