Making Time Lapse Movies from Still Images
After making or collecting your images, it is quite simple to make the movie. The simplest is to purchase the professional version of Apple's QuickTime (runs on PCs and Macs) for $30. The software allows you to make a movie very quickly while using a number of options, such as selecting how many frames per second should be shown to the format of the movie (mov, mpeg, etc.).
