Wondering what apps you use as an ipad workflow. I am traveling and not bringing a computer.

I shoot RAW time-lapse stills on a Hero 7. I import the stills to my ipad and edit them in Lightroom so I can get the best image quality from the images. But then what?

What app or apps can I use on my ipad to create a timelapse from the edited stills?

I'm using LumaFusion to edit video but I need the make the stills into a video before I put it in lumafusion.

Any help or insites is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Interestingly, there are lots of Video to Stills apps, but few Stills to Video apps. I saw some on the iPad, but reviews were horrible. However, I saw GIF Maker in the iOS App Store, which might do what you need (after all, there's no audio in a time lapse sequence!). At least GIF Maker had good review and is a Freemium app. Then you'd need to use a GIF to Video converter, but there are a couple of those in the iOS store. Unfortunately, I haven't tried any of these. I just wanted to help so you can use the magnificent LumaFusion app.

If this works, post the result somewhere and add the link to this thread! Good luck!

Couldn’t you just use LumaFusion to do this? You could set the default length of the photo’s you add to the timeline to 1 frame (or however many frames you prefer). This can be done in the Global Settings. Then you just have to drag and drop all of the photos to the timeline (30/24 photo’s would be 1 second depending your video frame rate). Just make sure the photos are added in the correct order:)

Then you could export the time laps and import the finished video into another LF project.

I don’t do many time lapses so maybe I’m missing something.

I have spent days googling this workflow and haven't found anything but I never thought to try it in youtube.

This is actually the EXACT workflow I am looking for: Raw files -> Lightroom -> Lumafusion

This tutorial is long winded but it's perfect. This process is just going to take FOREVER with 200+ photos :-)

I'm currently experimenting with 4k video time lapses from raw photos from my Mavic Air (still learning) - as for working with hundreds of photos - Darkroom app for iOS does have batch editing & exporting of photos (incl. raw format) - so that may help in reducing manual processing time. You can use Darkroom to color correct and grade a few key photos - and copy & paste those edits to all the other applicable photos, before doing a batch export to your image file format of choice. If you want to use Affinity Photo, it supports batch processing (at this time, only seeming to support batch exporting, not really editing. However, you can develop a LUT in Affinity Photo, and apply it to your footage within LumaFusion. AFAIK, Pixelmator / Pixelmator Photo doesn't support batch editing, batch exporting, nor LUTs at this time....

The main question I have, is what's the optimal image format to convert the raw image to for working within in LumaFusion - JPEG, PNG, TIFF, HEIC/HEIF?
