Time-Lapse Calculator – Duration & Frames

Whether you have installed a CCTV Time-lapse camera or time-lapse camera on your construction site, or agriculture project, or power plant project, this time-lapse calculator can help you in determining the exact time-lapse duration, the number of images required, etc. You will never have to spend hours calculating the parameters for your time-lapse!

What Can Our Time-Lapse Calculator Do?

OpticVyu Construction Time-lapse calculator allows you to calculator four different types of time-lapse calculations.

  1. Basic Time-lapse Duration Calculation
  2. Basic Required Frames Calculation (Number of images)
  3. Advanced Time-lapse Duration Calculation
  4. Advanced Required Frames Calculation

Our time-lapse calculator can determine various parameters of the time-lapse sequence. You have to predetermine only a few values, and our calculator will find the rest.

Shooting Interval: This is the frequency at which the images are being captured. For creating a short-term time-lapse video like capturing natural scenery over a period of a day, shooting intervals can be as low as 1 sec. For long-term time-lapse, an interval of 10mins is sufficient.

Shooting Hours: It’s the number of hours in a day for which a camera is actively capturing images. For short-term time-lapse, 24 hrs shooting hours can be considered to showcase the day & night changes of the subject. For long-term time-lapse ex. Construction of a building mostly requires only daytime photography.

FPS: Frames consumed over a period of 1sec of playing a time-lapse is FPS. A higher fps creates a smoother time-lapse. For general purposes, an FPS of 24 is recommended. However, for short & slow speed time-lapse videos, an FPS of 10 can also be used. A cinematic time-lapse video is created at an FPS of 30 or more.

Time-lapse Duration: Depending on the number of images available & desired fps, the time-lapse duration can be adjusted. For a catchy time-lapse, it is recommended to keep the time-lapse duration from 1-2min.

How to Use Our Construction Time-Lapse Calculator?

First of all, you have to select one of the four calculators and then follow the below steps

1. For Basic Time-Lapse Duration Calculation

To determine the duration of time-lapse you have to provide the number of images available and frames per second (FPS). Our calculator will automatically display the Time-lapse video duration in seconds.

2. For Basic Required Frames Calculation

To calculate the number of images required for a time-lapse video can be calculated by entering the time-lapse duration (sec) and Frame per second (fps).

3. For Advance Time-Lapse Duration Calculation

This can be used for calculating the number of images, memory card size required to store images, and the time-lapse duration (min). For calculating these all things you have to enter the following values

  • Shooting Interval (min) ( Ex – one image per 5 min etc)
  • Shooting Hours Per Day
  • Shooting Duration (days)
  • Frame Per Sec
  • Each Image Size (MB)

4. For Advance Required Frames Calculation

This can be used for calculating the number of images, memory card size (GB) required to store images, and the shooting duration (days). For calculating these all things you have to enter the following values

  • Shooting Interval
  • Shooting Hours Per Day
  • Time-lapse Duration (min)
  • Frame Per Sec
  • Each Image Size (MB)
