Welcome to Pro-Lapse

Pro-Lapse is a free timelapse calculator which allows you to quickly and easily work out the correct settings to ensure that your timelapse videos are the right speed, the right length and capture the right timeframe.

After performing the necessary calculations in my head time and time again, I figured there must be a better, simler way. So I created this simple calculator. Don't be deceived by the simplicity of this tool though, the results it will enable you to achieve will take your timelapse recordings to the next level.

If you have ever found the perfect location in ideal weather, then set out your camera to record for hours, only to review the footage and find it plays too quick or the video takes too long to play, then you need pro-lapse.

The super-experienced timelapse photographers amongst you may be able to judge the perfect settings just by getting a feel for things, just like with ISO, aperture and shutter speed. However, getting to that advanced level usually takes years of experience learning the hard way. Pro-lapse is your handy shortcut to getting top results without all those failed attempts to get the perfect shot.

Here's what can happen if you don't use a timelapse calculator:

  • You play your timelapse videos and lasts way longer than you'd like, losing that excitement factor and appearing quite boring. Similarly, it may whizz past way too fast.
  • Your recording finishes way too soon, before the action has finished.
  • The action in your final recording skips through too fast and lacks smoothness.

By using Pro-Lapse, you can put an end to all of these problems and experience professional level, trouble free recording every time.
