Note: Timelapse is a feature that needs to be enabled under the Enterprise License. Footage cannot be retroactively retrieved before the feature is toggled on.
Creating a Timelapse
1. Under "Settings" ensure the "Timelapse" feature is toggled on.
2. Click on "Saved Video", then select the "Timelapses" Tab.
3. Select "Create Timelapse". A window will pop up where you can begin to fill in your selections.
|3a. Select which camera(s) you wish to create a timelapse for from the available list. A blue checkmark indicates the camera has been selected. Click "Next".|
3b. Fill in the timestamps for the timelapse, select the clip length, select options for including or skipping nights and weekends, and if you would like to include the camera name, location, and timestamp on the created timelapse clip.
Click "Create" when all options have been selected.
Please Note: This process can take up to several minutes.
4. Once the timelapse has been created, it will show in the "Timelapse" tab of the "Saved Video" section. Here, you can select a timelapse and click "Share" if you would like to share the timelapse, or you can download the timelapse.
Note: You can create a timelapse as far back as any camera was online (it's ok if the camera no longer has video footage of the event) and you can create a timelapse with up to 12 cameras at once.
Below you can find the meanings of the optional toggles that can be selected while creating a timelapse video.
This toggle determines night using a library that estimates the sunset to sunrise hours for a particular day. Roughly, this will come out to your local sunset/sunrise times.
This toggle will allow you to skip 12 AM Saturday to 12 AM Monday.
Include Camera Name and Location
This toggle will append the camera name and location to the timelapse video.
This toggle will append the timestamp around the timelapse capture to the video.
