Microsoft Hyperlapse is a simple application that helps you shoot smooth lapse videos, and enhance your existing videos. The app uses image recognition to stabilize videos on people’s faces. This means that a direct recording results to smooth and clear videos.The application begins with two straight forward buttons – that is – import and record. The import allows you to pull videos you have recorded from your camera application as well as through the cloud storage applications like Dropbox.On the other hand, the record button does everything automatically. You do not have to fiddle with lighting, manual ISO, or other controls. The application allows users to turn the backlight on during the video for extra illumination and choose between rear or the front-facing camera before filming it.Once you record a video
, you are directed to the editing experience. The video replays automatically, and there is a bar on the bottom which allows you to range the speed at which the video will play.Once you begin a timelapse, it is set for the entire video. This means that you cannot increase or slow it at certain places. Once the recording has completed, you can watch the Hyperlapse in action. The app also does better in minimizing shaking when compared to time-lapse videos with other applications.The faster you do it, the better the video experience. We have seen some demos from the Microsoft Hyperlapse that appear cooler than timelapse filmed while walking around the town. Moreover, the quality improves when you introduce other ways to stabilize the videos such as using headcams.One downside of this application is that it offers no way to revisit the videos recorded in the Microsoft Hyperlapse. If you see the recording too fast and you desire to slow it, you better have recorded it somewhere else other than on Microsoft Hyperlapse. Before importing the videos, first, save the normal speed version and put it in the application later. It is recommended that you use the preferred application to record and then use Microsoft Hyperlapse to make a video into an intriguing time-lapse.
