Raspberry Pi Time-Lapse, First Movie

First shots taken- spaced one minute apart from 7am to 7pm on 2/10/15. Once the series of shots were taken, I used Microsoft Movie Maker to put together a video.

The process was very easy- basically import all the photos into Movie Maker and set the duration. I used a duration of 0.04 seconds per photo to yield about 24 frames / second. Unfortunately it was a snowy and overcast day, so it's a really boring video.

One issue that is noticeable right away is that the red camera on light shows in the photos. The Raspberry Pi camera light is very easy to turn off, see this link.

Following the link's instructions, open up the config.txt file for editing:

sudo nano /boot/config.txt 

Then add this to the end of the file:


save, reboot your PI, and you are in business minus the annoying light.
