Set the camera securely on the tripod and make sure the legs, head and any other moving parts are totally secure. Any movement will really show up in the timelapse so it is crucial that everything is secure.
Set up the camera
Set your camera to manual exposure and manual focus. If you’re not sure how to do this, check out our basic tutorials.
The exposure should be set so that a fairly slow shutter speed (1s+) can be used – this way the motion won’t feel too jumpy. To get a slower shutter speed, you’ll probably need to use a fairly small aperture and a low ISO.
Set up Triggertrap Mobile
Plug the connection cable into the camera, then the connection cable into the Dongle. Open up the Triggertrap Mobile app on your smart device and plug the Dongle into the headphone socket. Make sure your phone’s volume is turned up to full. In the app, open up the ‘TimeWarp’ mode and input the duration and number of exposures you have calculated. Then adjust your curve for the desired TimeWarp effect.
