Wow, was this a trip down the rabbit hole! That Landscapes video inspired me to create my own timelapse. Naturally, I thought shooting from the top of West Baldy at sunset would be perfect.
Turns out day-to-night timelapse is shockingly difficult. Within the quirky realm of timelapse photography it is known as 'the Holy Grail'. This one-hour sequence was shot uncompressed with my Nikon D7000, processed initially via Adobe Camera RAW, keyframed and reprocessed with a fantastic donationware tool called LRTimelapse, batch-processed and exported as 16-bit PSD files by Photoshop CS5.5, and then imported as a video sequence and edited and rendered within Sony Vegas Pro. All that to produce 30 seconds of footage!
