This video demonstrates how you can use Motion to quickly create a time-lapse video.

In the tutorial I also show how you can use Apple Preview to resize the photos before bringing them into Motion.

As an alternative, you’ll see me use Aperture to resize the photos, just in case you don’t want to use Preview. Both methods work pretty well, though Preview seems to struggle when you give it a lot of photos, and Aperture seems to handle any number of photos quite well.

I also demonstrate how to export the video from Motion so you can use it in another program.

By the way, make sure you don’t miss the other free videos I posted over the past couple days, the one about typography in Motion and the one about using Final Cut Pro X and Keynote together.

I hope you’re finding all these videos helpful!
