Using the Timelapse+ View with LRTimelapse

Offline
#1 gwegner
The Timelapse+ View and LRTimelapse work very well together.

By default the View writes exposure compensations to his XMP files in order to smooth out holy grail sequences.
Those compensations by default have the disadvantage, that you cannot use the exposure tool in Lightroom anymore for further editing.

Therefore, when you bring a sequence form the view into LRTimelapse, LRTimelapse will detect those compensations and put them to a background layer (exactly like the holy grail wizard does in LRTimelapse). This will allow you to freely keyframe all Lightroom/ACR tools, including the Exposure.

There is not much you have to to in order to get this working.
  • Load a sequence from the view including its XMP-Data into LRTimelapse. LRTimelapse will migrate the compensations from the column "Ext-Exp.Default" to "HG-Lum-Leveling" (the values have a different scaling, no worries).
  • You'll see the orange zig-zag-curve mirrored to the blue luminance curve.
  • Important: currently (until LRT 4.7.4 there is still a bug, that the compensations stay in the exposure column too - so please right click on the header of the table, on the Exposure 2012 column and select ("Initialize Column"). This will make the yellow curve straight. This will not be necessary anymore from LRT 4.7.5 on)
  • Now you can proceed through the LRTimelapse workflow. Just skip the Holy Grail Wizard, then you will be using the View's corrections and still be able to freely keyframe all editing tools.
If you want to try the LRTimelapse Holy Grail wizard instead (it does very similar corrections, but will overwrite the ones from the View) - no problem. You can always go back to the corrections by the view by resetting your sequence and choosing "Metadata/Initialize" in LRTimelapse.

I'm running into an issue where sequences from the VIEW won't show as being keyframed when I reload the metadata from within LR. I load them, pick number of key frames, save and it shows that it's keyframed them in LRtimelapse but then when I reload the data, no starring has occurred.

I don't think this has anything to do with the View. Seems like a workflow issue. Please see this faq to sort it out: http://forum.lrtimelapse.com/Thread-keyf...vise-versa
