We’re now finishing our second week of recording time lapse videos of the sky from our back lanai. All videos were taken with a GoPro Silver Hero 4.
I stopped posting them directly on Facebook because of two reasons: 1) they compress the heck out of the videos to take up the least amount of data on their servers as possible, making the videos very blurred, and 2) Facebook doesn’t really allow *any* published/recognizable music on videos that users upload to avoid any chance of litigation. YouTube allows users to watch videos in higher resolutions, and YouTube lets you use most songs, even commercial and popular music. If the artist/publisher of the song chooses, they can add banner ads to your video and profit off those ads in exchange for using the song. I don’t mind that- I’m just happy to be able to use my own music collection rather than have to scour the internet every night for an hour trying to find a song that works!
The videos look horrible unless they are viewed as HD, so here’s a graphic to help with that:
Anyway, thank you to everyone who watches and “thumbs up” and to anyone who has subscribed to the channel. I feel like I’m sort of bombarding everyone with these, but it’s really fun and it’s sort of become this family project- Tom does the filming, I do the editing and uploading, and now Gracie is going to start making *her* own version of the time lapse videos in addition to the ones I make- she’s going to take the raw time lapse videos we capture and edit them in iMovie with her own music and effects. I’m excited to see her take on them.
Without further ado, here are the videos from this week:
Hope you had an awesome weekend! <3
