Tomorrow my wife will be decorating our fire place for Christmas and it will look similar to what we had a couple of years ago, see image.
I thought it would be fun to video her doing it using timelapse. She says it will take around two hours to complete. I can set the camcorder up to take a frame every 1, 10, 30, 60 or 120 seconds. I think that a 5 minute video would be a reasonable time for viewers to watch it without getting bored.
Over a 120 minute period there would be 120 X 60 X 25 = 180000 frames shot.
Over a 5 minute period there would be 5 X 60 X 25 = 7500 frames to shoot.
How best to set the camera?
