First, any tool that one uses to accomplish their means should be User Friendly in the making of a TimeLapse. Timelapse Tool is the perfect product for that means. It packs a powerful punch for a small and easy to use product in the making of a TimeLapse. User Friendly is the Watch Word. It must be. The 'Tool', as I call it, renders big time results such as Photoshop, After Effects would but for so much less. If you donot have a slider, it will emulate camera movement for you. You are also able to experiment with different Frame rates, enable Tilt, foucs, Viginette and even a Gif. It will also allow you to build a HD and 4K video TimeLapse. The program is just easy to use rendering powerful and professional results. It's really left up to you and your creativity! I await the day when the 'The Tool', as I call it, will have the capability to utilize 'Stabilization' in a TimeLapse which is the only thing missing from 'The Tool'. In the meant time, have fun with 'The Tool' and create!!!
Over the last 6 months or so I have been on a quest to find a simple, easy to use time lapse program. I have down loaded at least ten to try. All had their good points but all had more bad points. What I was looking for was a standalone program that would allow me to edit, render, adjust the length, add sound, and also do Hyper Time Lapse ETC. for any and all the photos from whatever camera I wanted to use, and I use a lot of different cameras! When I down loaded Time Lapse Tool I knew that I had found what I was looking for. It would take sequences from my Sony Alpha A55, my Go Pro, my friends Canon, large amounts of photos or small and hyper time lapse sequences and render them into a very watchable video. The editing was so simple that I wondered if it could possibly work? It did and then some. I even fixed a Hyper Time Lapse sequence that was unwatchable in the other programs. Don't get me wrong, there is no substitute for good photography, good habits and reasonable conditions but time Lapse Tool will make your job a bit easier. Even the least expensive version works great. I also need to mention that the their service dept is outstanding. I had some "conflicting program" troubles at the start up and they went out of their way to see that it got fixed. You will not be sorry for using Time Lapse Tool!
I selected Time-Lapse Tool for a number of reasons. It has a very robust set of options, and each option offers complete flexibility in their settings in terms of quality, compression, and frame rate. The user interface is intuitive and relatively easy to master. Performance in both importing images and creating the movie is excellent. The price for each type of license is very reasonable. One other reason: The effects allow you to change the lighting, color, contrast, etc. without altering the original images.
I discovered Time-Lapse Tool about a year ago while looking for a way of taking individual images captured by my MallinCam astronomical cameras and creating time lapse videos. I was pleased with the free version, but wanted to be able to adjust and save the videos created at a higher resolution. So I upgraded to the PRO version and have not been disappointed. I have an All Sky Camera running by my observatory and it captures images every minute to a hard drive. As soon as I registered the PRO version, I created a time lapse of the All Sky Camera's view of the sky from 8:00 PM on May 4th through 8:00 AM on May 5th.
I then created a time-lapse video of the Sun as seen by my MallinCam DS2.3 PLUS and Lunt 152 H-Alpha solar telescope. I had captured images every 15 seconds and used the 1280 or so images to create this video:
I used some of the adjustment features in Time-Lapse PRO to tweak Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Hue to achieve the image of the Sun.
Feel free to post this feedback/testimonial as well as the links to the videos created to date.
I was looking for a software tool that would allow me to create time-lapse animations of the Sun using still frames captured with a dedicated solar telescope and astronomical camera. Frustration, until someone pointed me to Time-Lapse Tools. I started with the free version and was impressed by the simplicity of the work flow and the top-notch quality of the results. The tools within the program are extremely useful in improving the final visual effect. I am also impressed with the export tools, especially the ability to directly upload to a YouTube account. After a week of testing, I opted to buy the very reasonably priced Personal Full HD version: a wise choice on my part! Well done ... excellent program that I am recommending to my fellow amateur astronomers without hesitation!
After looking over the Internet to see if I can get help with processing my attempts at time lapse imaging I found Time Lapse Tool. I downloaded the free version of Time Lapse Tool and was blown away by how easy the software is to use and how it gave me great results on my time lapse imaging.
After playing with the software over a short time I decided that it would be well worth the money paying to upgrade the free version to a version that I can make my videos in HD.
I highly recommend Time Lapse Tool you will not be disappointed
After looking at both free and paid software for assembling time-lapse imaging sessions, I decided on Time-Lapse Tool.
The software is easy to use, intuitive, and best of all, fast, when assembling 600-700 high resolution images into a video sequence.
After trying the software extensively, ensuring it was really up to the task I needed it for, I bough it and never regretted it since.
I mainly use it to quickly make time lapse movies of construction sites or events.
Everything works and the software is (compared to other solutions) very quick and easy to use.
Hey, just thought i would let you know how thankful i am of your software. i spent all afternoon flicking from program to program pulling my hair out as they all stop responding when i try to edit my 23,000 image time lapse. finally i found your software and within minutes i was happily editing it. its now been only 10 minutes and its currently exporting so i thought id take the time to say thanks you made my day!
I am a brand new user to the video editing world, so I hope your ok that I'm not as tech savvy as most in the field. The main reason I purchased your product is because GoPro Studio is really glitchy and was not easy to use. It was way worth the purchase to have something that worked and worked every time and so far works well. There are a few features I haven't figured out yet, but I'm sure with a little time it will become intuitive.
We use Time-Lapse software to create videos to document the nesting behavior of an endangered turtle in Maryland. We needed something with more capability than the Go-Pro software tools, which, although free, did not meet our needs. Time-Lapse software has been both reliable and fast and has an easy-to-use interface which makes creating our videos both quick and easy.

The first time I tried using “Time-Lapse Tool” I could easily see that it provided the intuitive interface to allow lacing still images together in one project easy. After each use, I began to experiment with other features that again, are intuitive to use and easy to understand. I have only done 6 or 7 projects with from 100 – 1,000 images, so as yet, I have not run into any limitations on file size or image count. Compared to an Adobe product there is almost zero learning curve to get up and running with this software instantly. I highly recommend this product if you are new, like I am, to Time Lapse projects.
I keep track of my life using a life-logging camera and use Time-Lapse Tool every morning to make a 2 minute summary of the previous day. It's a nice, light and no-nonsense tool that quickly provides high quality videos, and there are options to change several settings, which is very nice. Just for fun you can quote me as the "god of life-logging", as stated in the Financial Times

Time-Lapse Tool is perhaps the best balance between applications which are so professionally powerful but extremely complex and also expensive and those which can be straightforward and easy to use and affordable but are so limiting in exporting formats. It suits my purpose for making full-fledged time-lapse clips in a few clicks that is of high quality in resolution and smoothness.
I use TLT to create stunning timelapses of beach and ocean sunrises and sunsets. It's easy to use and practically does all the work for you. Would recommend to any level of user.
I had struggled finding a piece of software that would do what I needed. I've been running Time-Lapse for about 10 days and it does exactly what I need it to do. I have a folder of pictures from the entire day in a folder that I want to create a timelapse video from. TL does this effortlessly and then I have the option to publish the video to Youtube without the need to manually upload the file. I have my process down to about 5 mouse clicks and I'm done. Great product and very easy to use.
I use Time-Lapse Tool to create slick, high-quality time-lapse sequences for my construction-industry, engineering and Arts clients. These sequences are great for integration into larger projects; as standalone clips for immediate sharing with other Stakeholders; or, for promotion and marketing on social media. The Time-Lapse Tool interface and workflow is simple and intuitive and, with the built-in tools, provides a swift and effective alternative to costly and complicated non-linear editors and motion-control software packages. I wholeheartedly recommend Time-Lapse Tool.
For all those who are looking for a one-stop working time lapse creation software, this is the product to buy. It is simple and works very well with all types of photos. The additional control and features it provides for creating stunning time lapse videos are amazing and worth the money. Long story short- it works well and is amazing.
Thank you timelapsetool.com

I use my Time-Lapse Tool for making instruction (remember-what-did-I-do) “video” on board the research vessel I´m working at. Setting up the vessel for a new job often takes 12-14 hours, so instead of making a 12 hour long video, I use a 2-5 min timelap. Example: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jvoet/43874133444/in/dateposted-public/
Over all…Quite satisfied

Time-lapse settings on trail cams and Time-Lapse Tool software is a simple combination for compiling thousands of photo into a treasured video.
With Time-Lapse Tool your results are just seconds away. Learning the many functions of the software couldn't be any easier.
I made my first time-lapse video of a Public Works project I was in charge of. Three trail cams covered a 9 month long bridge replacement project crossing the Muskegon River in Michigan. Time-Lapse Tool compiled 60,000 photos of the project from beginning to end.
I have been looking for a time lapse program for some time. Then I found Time- Lapse Tool. As it is the program which meets all my expectations and even goes beyond I bought it without hesitations. Now, after using it for past few months I know it was a right decision
Time lapse photography is just fun. It adds fun to children playing and a wonderful effect to cloud movement. Time lapse tool is the best I have found for deflick, which is essential and for zoom for adjustments in view. All functions are intuitive which is rare in software.
I just downloaded the Pro model yesterday and have only done one test with it. The test involved shooting the sky to exaggerate the movement of the clouds. I still don't know exactly what I'm doing in terms of frame rates etc. but from the results of that first test I can say this.....It's worth the money!
I chose Time-Lapse Tool because it works! I was having trouble with Windows Movie Maker refusing to produce videos from the jpg pictures I was collecting on my trail cameras. Time-Lapse Tool has has no trouble with them. It does the one thing I want to do (time-lapse video) very well and very easily.
I chose Time-Lapse Tool after migrating to Windows 10 from OS X a couple weeks ago. I've barely explored what it can do, but so far it has met my basic needs very well.
I was using time lapse assembler before I switched. Time-Lapse Tool compiles faster (but might be my newer PC too).
I have tried various programs for my time lapse work and right now I am using the easiest and best I have used. Time-Lapse Tool is very user friendly but still has the power to produce excellent sequences. I would highly recommend this software for the beginner or expert alike.
I've been using Time-Lapse Tool for several months and I'm very happy with it. Best of all, it's fast. It loads the images fast and it previews fast. The interface is very easy to use. Rendering output files is also pleasingly quick. Great software at a very reasonable price.

I spent a long time looking for an affordable and easy solution to make high resolution time-lapse videos. Most applications were difficult to use or were slow and unreliable. The only application that worked, and has everything I could ask of it was the aptly named 'Time-Lapse Tool', NOTHING else worked reliably or was too difficult to use
Time-Lapse Tool is my goto application when I want to quickly composite a timelapse from different sessions or to quickly preview a timeline output when jpegs are saved in camera. It allows me to easily import still images, rearrange timelines and apply standard processing to selected timelines of images. It renders my timelapses and videos quickly and without fuss. I wouldn't be without it
