Blender isn’t the most popular software among photographers, but it’s perfect for achieving a nice tilt shift effect!
You can use it for every part of the process: from stabilising your time lapse, to adding the tilt shift effect and colour grading. It can all be done right in Blender, and in this tutorial I’ll show you how.
I’ve also included loads of time lapses you can download, to try this out yourself!
Could your script be modified to use ffmpeg/avconv instead? I could have a look at some point (way down the road unfortunately).
@Mondayman - I’m hoping to have it done before too long. It’s nothing fancy, just recreating the trailer but in HD using the bluray (so pure video manipulation and splicing and time stretching). The movie is in 23.976fps while the trailer is for ntsc 29.97.
