Time lapse videos are sped up to show longer footage in a shorter period of time. For example, you can record the sun rising and use time lapse to show all of your footage in seconds.
To shoot a video with Hyperlapse:
- Tap the circle at the bottom of the app. While recording, you'll see a timer on the left that shows how long your recording is and a timer on the right that shows how long your video will be once it’s sped up.
- Tap the circle again to stop recording.
- Use the slider to choose a speed for your video. By default, speed will be set at 6x.
- Tap the checkmark in the top right to save the video to your device's camera roll. When you shoot a time lapse video with Hyperlapse, your footage will be instantly stabilized to give it a cinematic look.
You can use your front-facing camera to shoot a video of yourself. Tap to switch the camera to front-facing (“selfielapse”) and if you change your mind, tap it again to return to regular Hyperlapse. Keep in mind that you can’t switch between selfielapse and Hyperlapse while recording a video.
Upgrade or download Hyperlapse in the App Store.
Right now, you can use Hyperlapse on devices with iOS 7 and up (iPhone 4 and up, iPad and 5th generation iPod Touch).
You can shoot a video for up to 10 minutes if you have an iPhone 4. If you have a later version of the iPhone, the length of video you can shoot depends on the amount of space you have on your phone.
Hyperlapse allows you to choose different speeds. By default, videos are set to 6x. A 6x speed means that your Hyperlapse video will be 6 times faster than its original recording. For example, a 60-second video at 6x would end up being 10 seconds long after it’s sped up.
After saving a video, tap Share on Instagram to post it to your Instagram account. Keep in mind that videos on Instagram can be up to 15 seconds long and will appear in a square format.
When you save a video with Hyperlapse, it goes to your device's camera roll. You can share your video to other sites by uploading the video directly from your device.
