How to make a Time-lapse video on PC

You’ve probably seen different types of time-lapse videos. The time-lapse effect can be used in various ways, whether it be observing the sunrise and night sky or recording drawings and digital art.
You can easily create a timelapse video by adjusting the speed of the video in Bandicut.

What is a time-lapse? 

At the most basic level, time-lapse is a technique used to make the actions of a video seem faster than they are in reality. In essence, time-lapse compresses scenes from hours to just a few seconds. There are two basic methods for producing time-lapse effects. One involves taking sequences of still images and combining them to create a video. The other involves recording your work and speeding it up post-processing. In this article, we will introduce the latter method, especially elaborating on how to create a time-lapse video on a PC.
