Part 5: Removing Flicker from the Time Lapse Sequence
In this last segment, I talk about removing the flicker that occurs if you have the camera in a semi-automatic mode like Aperture Priority. This is usually necessary if you're shooting when the light is changing, like during sunset.
I use Digital Anarchy's Flicker Free plug-in to easily deal with this problem. It's available for many host applications: After Effects, Premiere, Final Cut, Avid, Sony Vegas, Resolve, Nuke, and more.
Time lapse is an amazing form of photography/videography and I'm looking forward to sharing what I've learned over the years. Through the whole series we'll be going through the entire process of how I should time lapse. From setting up the DSLR, to taking the photos, and then on to post production where we'll process the RAW images, stabilize them, and remove any flicker.
I tend to shoot mostly sunrise and sunset time lapse, so I'll be focusing on shots where the lighting is changing. Most tips and tricks will apply to other scenarios, but there's a few that you don't need to worry about if the light is going to change significantly over the course of your shot.
The processing is done in Adobe After Effects and uses Digital Anarchy's Flicker Free plugin for deflickering the video. You can use other software (especially Premiere Pro) but that's what I'm using to demonstrate the problems and solutions.
