  • HELP - Time Lapsed Photography

    fellow netters,

    briefly, i am trying to set up a system for collecting time lapse
    photography images with a computer and then recording them back onto a
    video tape. more details follow.


    currently, we have access to a Galileo video card to capture the images.
    i would like to know how this card rates compared to any others available
    as far as price, user friendliness, etc. does it come with its own
    software so that the user can specify his own time function to determine
    when to take images? can it accept an external trigger or input from any
    other types of programming languages? is it capable of extracting images
    from the hard drive and outputting them at a fast enough rate to record
    on video?


    currently, the software Adobe Photoshop is being used to adjust the
    images and trim them down to a 512X512 pixel image size. it is also
    being used to center the pictures. is there any other kind of software
    which has the capabilities of Adobe (maybe even some shareware)? does
    anyone know of software which would be able to take various images and
    center them based on a marker located in the image? i can easily think
    of how such a program might work, but i really don't know if i could
    write it.

    any input will be greatly appreciated. i will post a list of results.

    thanx lotz
