Brilliant 4K Timelapse of New Zealand, Awakening

Inspiration May 2nd 2014 4:08 PM 7 Comments

We really try not to share timelapses all too often, because no matter how amazing they are after watching them for a while they can all start to look the same. Not in this case. The timelapse you are about to see is something special.

Photo is a screengrab from the video.

Shot over the course of 4 months in the beautiful country of New Zealand, photographer and timelapse enthusiast Martin Heck compiled footage to create this amazing timelapse called: Awakening.

Equipment used

According to the description of the video, the processing and editing were completed in Lightroom 5, LRTimelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro CS6. The crazy part is that this is just part 1 of 4, so more of this goodness is about to come. You can follow Martin’s work more closely over on his facebook page.

    Incredible! The panning work alone is amazing.

    I was able to watch the 1440p at full size (27-inch Apple Cinema Display). The original footage must be absolutely stunning. The YouTube video of course suffers with quite a bit of compression artifacts. Still a sight to behold though.

    Pardon my ignorance, but how is 4k achieved with the Canon 6D? I guess we’re not referring to a 4k video setting, but more so a RAW photo pulled into a 4k sequence in something like Premiere?

      That is correct. Basically a set of stills used to make a movie.

      If you take the dimension of a single photo from the 6D it is 5472 x 3648. That is quite a bit larger than 4k. When you bring those stills into your editing software and edit as 4k you get great quality. With resolution to spare.

    Impressive time-lapse ! This might be a stupid question – but how do you record 4K / UHD on a Canon 6D ?
