I took timed photos over several days of work on a project last summer, and have about 5000 photos each ~4Mb.
I want to create a time-lapse video from this and I'm not sure the best way. I already imported them into the Photo app from my SD card and tried adding the album contents to an iMovie project, but it is very slow and I don't want to have to do too much trial and error if each action takes several minutes!
There are many photos - normally in periods of several hours - I don't want included. Should these be cut from the resultant video, or not included to start with? Which interface is easier to work with?
So far I tried to import all photos into iMovie, then did select-all and add to movie. I tried this with my 20Gb of photos and after about 20min it gave up "not enough disk space" then my computer froze until I could eventually force-kill iMovie! Clearly not very good. I also determined the minimum time I can set to each photo is 0.1s. So no 30fps video possible.
I wondered if I should batch-resize all the photos separately since they are 12MP and that's way more than needed for HD (about 1MP). I'd thought maybe iMovie might do this automatically but possibly not.
