heres a little work in progress. shot directly into movie with Magic Lantern "FPS Override" feature. Used the Composer with the Edge 80. Few things didnt work well, a bit windy caused a few shakes, the ND filters are cheap (stay away from them, they cause terrible colour casting, better save up for a top quality/expensive 100 dollars filter like Lee Filters "Big Stopper). On some shots, even with the ND filter i had to used a f11 aperture, which decreased the miniature effect. After seeing this, getting 3/4 persons with the same set up at different angles and doing a synced multi cam timelapse on a scenario/ariport like the Edge 80 miniature must look awesome for sure!

Excellent work Nuno. I really enjoyed this.

What camera were you using and what was your frame speed for the time lapse?

thanks John for your words.

My setup was:
Canon 550D (wish i had a full frame in certain places, to take advantage of a full frame true focal length)
Composer & Composer Pro with the Edge 80 optic

I shot using Magic Lanterns, FPS OVERRIDE feature, which allows you to record directly on video. The setting was 3 fps (which is equivalent of a 1/333 shutter). I had to use ND filters, so that i could keep the miniature effect (which works better in apertures between 2.8 and 8). The ND filters i used are cheap....they arent ND at all, you can notice the pink tone in the videos due to them. need to buy a proper ND filter....but they are expensive.

With the settings i had in Magic Lanters FPS OVERRIDE, 3 fps, means that one second in movie playback (24fps) equals 8 seconds that were recorded in real time.
On post production i increased the speed of the movie by two (so a second in the final video is equal to 16 seconds that were recorded), because i had so much footage (recorded over two months) that i wanted to include them all. Still, many footage i didnt include them, i will probably will do a dedicated cruise timelapse (got tons of footage of cruises arriving and leaving the port).

I know i have said this for months, but i will do a article about Magic Lantern which works great with lensbaby. It will be ready this month for sure
