Instagram today launched a new standalone video app called Hyperlapse, which is developed to enable users to catch top quality time lapse videos enhanced with built-in stabilization features. According to the app’s description, the image stabilization allows users to produce ‘polished’ time lapse videos that’d normally just be possible with the use of a tripod.
In an interview with Wired, Instagram discloses that its image stabilization function makes use of the iPhone’s gyroscope to determine the cam’s motion, which permits video to be supported with an easy algorithm.
Hyperlapse mimics the time lapse feature presented with iOS 8, but it includes modification features not found in Apple’s own time lapse abilities. Together with image stabilization, the app also lets users choose a playback speed, from 1X to 12X, and it can record brief bursts of video or shoot all day.
When you shoot a time lapse video with Hyperlapse, your footage will be instantaneously supported to ravel the bumps from the road and give it a cinematic feeling. Record a whole sunup in 10 seconds– even from the back of a moving motorbike. Walk through the crowds at an all-day music celebration, then distill it into a 30 second area. Catch your bumpy trail run and share your 5k in 5 seconds.
Though developed by Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, Hyperlapse doesn’t require an account to log in and it features a simple user interface with one-tap video recording capabilities. It likewise consists of sharing tools to let users share time lapse videos to both Instagram and Facebook, however videos can likewise be saved to the cam roll.
