Timelapse Post-processing: Time Remapping in After Effects

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Time remapping gives you a way to manipulate the progression of time in your time-lapse.

Rather than having consistently moving time, you can speed up or slow down portions of your footage, or make parts go in reverse and others move forward. It's a great way to add some extra creativity to your project.

In this Tutorial Aaron shows the basics of achieving this in Adobe After Effects. The same concepts apply to other compositing and editing software.
