Time Lapse Cake

I decided to try making a time lapse video with my GoPro Hero 2 camera. Basically, I set up the camera on a tripod, set it to take one photo every 5 seconds. Then I baked a yellow cake! My only tech snafu was the battery ran out but that was my fault because I didn’t recharge it before setting up the shoot.

I found a neat program called “Time-Lapse” by http://www.microprojects.ca that arranged the string of photos after I picked the frames per second, the codec, and speed. Time-Lapse then created a Quicktime movie that I imported into iMovie 11. The “Time-Lapse” app cost $5.00 from the Apple App store and it was a breeze to use.

In iMovie 11, I added titles and music to the video.

The cake recipe was a yellow cake from Better Homes and Gardens. It was a tasty, tasty cake.
