Microsoft’s Hyperlapse is Killer!
Been waiting your whole life because you could not trim your extravagant holiday videos to make them watchable for your friends? Well people of this mighty technological era, worry not! Microsoft’s Hyperlapse allows you to cut long, shaky videos and make them smooth as butter.
So now you do not have to spend hours on editing you videos, all you need for smooth bump-free, time-lapse is to get Hyperlapse. The app shares the same name as Instagram’s Hyperlapse and has some really cool tricks up its sleeve.
This smarty app is using algorithms and intelligent software technology to smoothly stabilize the final results. So even if you have not made a video with the intent of turning it into a time lapse, it still will turn out smooth.
The app is available for Windows PC, Windows phones and Android, an iOS version is not available for now. Microsoft tells Engadget that they have not made Apple their client yet as they already have enough competitors at the App Store. However they might be releasing an iOS version as well.
Usually what the time lapse apps do is they skip a defined number of frames which lead to shaky videos. The researchers at Hyperlapse used the software that first produces a rough 3D model, fits it in the landscape mode and then uses it to define camera’s path. When path is defined the videos becomes smoother.
The speedy video ends automatically being stabilized and smoothed, so faster your video is the most enjoyable it can be. The video can be sped up to 32x.
