Transitions

Or ‘Virtual Tours Through Time’ Or ‘Transition Time Lapse’

I have a page on ‘Before and After’ type of comparisons. But what if there is more than 2 images to display. So far I have developed two approaches to this:

  • Create a video using the images in sequence similar to a time-lapse (but at a slower pace!) As I am not sure what to call these short videos I have started making, for now I will call them ‘Transition time lapse’.
  • Use Virtual Tour software to achieve a more interactive experience.

The garden one below is a video that is still in progress for 2021 – it will take until the end of the year to complete! It shows how our garden changes of the course of the year:

This garden video will change occasionally as I add more images to the set.

I have created second ‘Transition Time-Lapse’ of a tree for 2021 (the first is shown towards the end of this page):

The video below are 2 trials of using panoramic photographs for a ‘Transition Time Lapse’. The subject is a field next to the smallholding in Norfolk where we used to live – they photos were taken from a shed roof! First is the short version then the longer one:

Below I show two options with a sequence of photos of a tree taken over the course of about 10 months. The first shows the virtual tour option, the second shows the video option. A couple of advantages of the Virtual Tour method is the interactivity and the ability to zoom in to see the detail:

Below are the same images in a short video:
