Lightroom Time Lapse Presets [TOP] Download


Five years ago, I made a video about creating time-lapses solely in Lightroom Classic using the Slideshow Module. It was an experiment in pushing the boundaries of what Lightroom could feasibly do, and over the years it has garnered over 175K views, which was completely unintentional, but a very welcome surprise.

First of all, I have to break some bad news. Lightroom was never built to make time-lapses, so we have to work within the boundaries of its programming and bend the rules a little. Using the Slideshow Module, you can make individual images appear like they are at any desired frame rate, but Lightroom is only capable of exporting a slideshow movie at 29.97 fps.

If you are seeing any other kind of flickering, like drastic increases or decreases in brightness between frames, you might need to retake your time-lapse images. This kind of flickering is most likely the result of your camera being in an auto exposure mode. To get the best results, you should be shooting in manual mode with manual ISO so the settings stay consistent from shot to shot. If that's not possible because the lighting will change drastically during your shoot, then you really need to invest in a program that will fix the flickering automatically for you, like the aforementioned LRTimelapse.

If your time-lapse video appears out of order, remember to change the sorting of the images in the Library Module to sort by Capture Time before switching to the Slideshow Module to export it. A good practice is to start in the Library Module and make a collection of the images you want to include in your time-lapse video before you begin, and set the sorting to Capture Time.

Make a collection for the images you want in the timelapse, organised by capture time. Apply the Template for the framerate you require. Click Export Video and choose the matching Video framerate for your Slideshow. Name the file and then press return.
