Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 4: Crossing the Pacific Ocean.
Now for something completely different. I wanted to do a time-lapse video of the sunset. However, while on a ship — even a big ship there is lots of motion due to the motion of the ships travel, waves, and wind. My camera is not able to correct for all of that motion. The first time-lapse video below is bouncing all over the place. I then processed the video using the Warping Filter in Adobe After Effects for the second time-lapse video. Although not perfect, it does a pretty good job stabilizing the image.
Sun Setting from the deck of the MV World Odyssey while crossing the Pacific Ocean. Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 35 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 800, 35 mm, f/16, 1/260 sec) at 3 second intervals. Raw images processed with Capture One Pro. The time-lapsed video was created using Photoshop CC. Stabilization of the time-lapsed sequence was performed with the Warp Filter in Adobe After Effects.
