Time lapse techniques
Time changes are not always automatically well managed by connected objects and often a change in the settings is necessary. In this article, we explain how to properly reparameterize your Tikee camera during a time change (without changing time zone).
With a few images a day over a sufficiently long period of time, one can have a fine understanding of certain social phenomena without compromising people’s privacy.
In my two previous articles I talked about the data that can be extracted from a camera originally designed for timelapse, when it is positioned at a strategic point in a city. I wanted to take advantage of this first week of “deconfinement” to continue the study and to see if life returned to normal …
Did you know that it is possible to say that the confinement we are currently experiencing has made it possible to reduce the number of “risky” interactions in the public space by at least a factor of 10? And this, by taking only 6 wide-angle photos per hour.
Social distancing measures are everyone’s business. And it is important for everyone to be convinced that the rules are respected by the population as a whole, in an objective manner, so that a feeling of injustice is not added to the difficulty of isolation.
For some time now we have been conducting an experiment in understanding public spaces with a large French metropolis.
The aim is to regularly capture what is happening in a place and identify trends, to better understand behaviours, and ultimately to help policy makers make the best decisions based on facts and not impressions.
The data we have accumulated so far has allowed us to create an average profile of traffic at a hub by day of the week. We study among other things pedestrian and vehicular traffic (cars, buses, bicycles, …). You can see below the smoothed data, hour by hour, cumulated over the beginning of the year 2020 (January to beginning of March).
The high native resolution of the Tikee camera and its 220° panoramic field of view offer incredible possibilities for immersion into the heart of the scene. Here we will teach you how to add a spherical pan&zoom effect to your timelapse.
Thanks to the wide field of view (220°), the images made by Tikee have a panoramic format. This is why you can sometimes notice “distortions” if you have installed your camera with tilt: some lines that are straight in reality appear curved in the picture.
In this technical blog post, more advanced than the previous ones, we will see how to correct this skyline and generate a more aesthetic timelapse.
In this article, we will only detail how to capture images in DNG format with Tikee, what to pay attention to when developing images, and how to generate a timelapse on our platform.
We will not detail the specificities of the development of the DNG for the timelapse (temporal coherence of the parameters, antiflicker, etc.). This will probably be the subject of a future blog post;)
The Tikee lets you capture in DNG format. This standard format, created by Adobe, allows to store RAW (raw sensor) image as well as information about the camera and shooting conditions in order to be able to “develop” it in a dedicated software (Adobe Lightroom CC by example). This workflow is highly appreciated by photographers because it allows to obtain a personalized rendering of the colors, and to make anti-noise and edge enhancement adjustments different fro
There are situations where you do not want to use the automatic video editing features of my.tikee.io web app. For example, you weren’t able to upload all your photos as and when the timelapse was running and then you get too much data to upload at once. Or maybe you want to change the colorimetry for a more personal rendering, or any other modification of the images using a third-part software.
In these situations, you then have a large series of photos that you would like to transform into a video. In this article you will find the necessary steps to do it.
