Determining the final time-lapse video length:

The final length of your time-lapse video is determined by the project length multiplied by the image capture frequency divided by the movie frame rate. For example, on a typical long term project (1 year) the time-lapse camera is set to capture one image every ten minutes for a 10 hour day. This will yield 60 images per day (6 photos/hour x 10 hours). On a five day work week 300 photos will be captured (5 days x 60 photos/day). Over the course of 1 year a total of 15,600 photos will be captured (52 weeks x 300 photos/week). If the video playback frame rate is set to 30 frames or photos per second the video length will be 8 minutes 66 seconds (15,600 photos ÷ 30 photos/second ÷ 60 seconds).

The final video can by shortened or lengthened by varying the time-lapse cameras capture frequency or the video playback frame rate to achieve the desired length.
