Time Lapse vs. ‘Layer-Lapse’ : Technique Showcases Boston Cityscape


By / / From creator/producer and GE Aviation engineer (yep, that’s his day job) Julian Tryba:

Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein’s relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.
Thanks for another reminder of how beautiful our city can be, Julian. Now, just you wait till we see this technique pop up more in TV spots and viral vids… Via
