A Beginner’s Tutorial to Batch Processing RAW Timelapse Images

By Hanssie on November 28th 2014

So you have hundreds of images from your trip to the desert from your first attempt to create a night sky timelapse. Processing these images may seem like a no brainer right? Just toss them into Camera RAW and voila!

The process may seem pretty easy, but for those of you who have never created a timelapse before, you may need a little guidance.

As a followup to his previous timelapse tutorial, Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens shows us some of the things we should consider when batch processing our RAW timelapse images and then making a video sequence out of them and into a polished looking timelapse. In the video below, he begins with how to batch edit the images and breaks down the process to exporting them.  He also discusses what to do if you used Aperture Priority and how to deflicker your video from the changing exposure settings if you didn’t use Manual mode.
