Turn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom into a powerful time-lapse editor. The Timelapse Workflow plugin is a suite of four essential tools for time-lapse post-processing in Lightroom.
Automated but not controlling; all tools have confirmation dialogs before applying changes, explaining what it's doing and why. Each step is optional and can be used alone as well.
Streamline and intuitive, all without leaving Lightroom.
After downloading, follow the installation instructions on the documenation page.
As a Lightroom plugin, everything happens inside Lightroom so you don't need to switch applications or synchronize settings. It's fast, too!
There are no limits to how you edit your photos; it can handle local corrections including gradients, brushes and more. Focus on editing your images and let the plugin take care of the rest.
If you're using an automated ramper, you can skip dealing with the XMPs and let the plugin handle the smoothing. You're even able to change the exposure on keyframes.
"As a professional time-lapser I absolutely love the Timelapse+ workflow plugin for Lr as it is very easy to use yet very efficient. In a few steps I am able to create stunning and smooth astro time-lapses of the Milky Way or the aurora without having to worry about the metadata that goes behind the whole sequence."
The Time-lapse Workflow Group tool will automatically detect time-lapse sequences in the current library view (or your entire library if you need to get organized) and create a collection for each one. No more guessing where the first frame starts.
Sunsets, holy-grail sequences and anything with changing conditions typically need white balance and other settings blended across mamy frames. The Keyframe feature will automatically identify transitions and mark them with a star, so you can focus on editing and be confident of the results.
This feature will select the minimum number of keyframes for a good result. You can star additional images if you want more keyframes for creative editing.
Once you've edited each of the keyframed (starred) images, use the Blend tool to smoothly blend the settings between each keyframe. It can also animate the crop for a Ken-Burns effect or even animate brushes and gradients for crazy stuff. Feel free to edit however you want -- the blend tool will ensure a smooth output.
In-camera exposure changes are handled automatically, too -- if you changed any camera settings during the time-lapse, don't worry -- the blend tool will feather each change across multiple frames so you get flicker-free results without abrupt changes. This also supports exposure rampers like the Timelapse+ VIEW Intervalometer, RamperPro, DSLRDashboard and manually-manage holy-grail sequences. No external metadata or additional steps are needed for smooth holy-grail processing.
