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, timelapse 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.

How to make time lapse videos on a PC :

To create a timelapse video on a PC, capture your computer screen or webcam and speed it up. All you need to do is simply install the Bandicut Video Editor. You will then be able to speed up the video up to 99.9X using Bandicut. In addition, if you need to record or capture a PC screen or webcam, it is recommended to use Bandicam Screen Recorder.

Time lapse drawing is a progress recording of a drawing that incorporates digital drawing programs such as Photoshop, Paint Tool SAI, or MediBang Paint. Some people also call this “speed paint.”
