You can use it to plan your time lapse before going on location.
Method 1 – time lapse video editing
The easiest way is to right click in the project manager, choose Import and browse to the folder where the whole sequence is located. Select the first frame of the time lapse, then tick the Image Sequence box and click OK.
Adobe Premiere will stitch the whole batch of frames together so you can easily drag it on your timeline. If the resolution of the photos are bigger than your sequence resolution, you can right click it and choose Scale to Frame Size.
Method 2 – time lapse video editing
Sometimes using the Method 1 will not bring good results. Premiere will not import all your frames for some reason.
If this happens, right click in the project area, choose Import, select all the frames with CTRL+A, untick the Image Sequence box and then click on Open. Premiere Pro will then import all the frames. Please follow the video to see exactly how I select all the frames, edit their duration and then drag them onto my timeline.
Export the sequence – time lapse video editing
No matter what method you’ve chosen, the export method is the same. Go to File – Export – Media or press CTRL+M to enter the render settings.
You can then select the H.264 codec and the HD 1080p 29,97 fps preset. Make sure you tick the Maximum Render Quality and Use Previews.
Choose a name for your file, untick the Export Audio option and then hit the Export button.
When doing time lapse video editing you should consider post processing each frame in terms of contrast, saturation, exposure before importing them into Adobe Premiere. I made this using Adobe Lightroom. If you want me to make a tutorial on that part, please make sure you give me a thumbs up under the YouTube video and subscribe to my channel.
