Stabilizing hyperlapse in Apple Motion


The post-production side of hyperlapse photography hasn't changed much over the last decade.

You usually take your sequence, throw it in After Effects, apply a Warp Stabiliser effect to it, and repeat that process if necessary.

Every now and then you may encounter a sequence that you just can't seem to get right.

That's what happened to me, and so I decided to finally leave the Adobe realm and give Apple Motion a try.

The results might surprise you…

How to hyperlapse with Apple Motion

  • Download, install and open Apple Motion
  • Import your hyperlapse photo sequence by dragging it onto the Apple Motion timeline
  • Go to the Behaviour button and add the Stabilize Motion Effect
  • In the inspector panel click the Analyze button
  • Let this process run and export your hyperlapse as a Apple Prores file
  • Re-import and apply the stabilizer again or import it into After Effects to finish the process with the Warp Stabilizer

As I mentioned in the video, I have taken all the hyperlapse videos from The Ultimate Timelapse Course and made a separate module with them. You can now purchase lifetime access to The Ultimate Hyperlapse Course.

It features over 35 exclusive videos, over 2 hours of educational content, my Timelapse Preset & LUT pack, access to the members-only forum where you can connect with fellow timelapse & hyperlapse photographers. You also get my e-book The Ultimate Timelapse Guide, as well as an exclusive LRTimelapse discount code and so much more.
