Rapid Movie 2.0

Source:RNS::

The general purpose of RNS:: Rapid Movie is capturing film frames at a rate much slower than a playback speed. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster. Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye become very pronounced.

Technologies supported:
The following photography and cinematography techniques are supported by RNS:: Rapid Movie:

- Time-lapse - each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back.
- Stop motion - an animation technique which makes static objects appear to move.
- Sequential shooting - pictures are captured one after another in equal intervals.

All video recordings created by Rapid Movie are saved in the QuickTime movie format (*.mov)
All photo sequences shot by Rapid Movie are saved in the JPEG image format (*.jpg)

To play QuickTime movie files created by RNS:: Rapid Movie, you may use QuickTime Player on your PC or Mac, or The Core Pocket Media Player (TCPMP) on your Treo or Zire 72.

Areas of use:
The technologies provided by RNS:: Rapid Movie generally give best results when recording objects or scenes that change slowly, in long periods of time. Some classic subjects include:

- Evolution of a construction project
- Front view from a moving vehicle
- Daily changes
- Plants growing and flowers opening
- Cloudscapes and celestial motion
- People in the city
- Model animation
- Fruit rotting

Modes:
Single Photo - captures still pictures just like the "Camera" application. This simple mode does not actually create movies or photo sequences, but one shot a time.
Photo Series - takes pictures sequentially in equal intervals, and saves them as separate JPEG files. You can adjust the interval between consecutive shots.
Moving Video - takes pictures sequentially in equal intervals, and saves them all as a single MOV file. You can adjust the interval between consecutive shots, as well as the playback rate.
