Description

In this course you’ll learn absolutely everything you need to know to make your time-lapses look perfect. In the 50 lessons divided in three parts of this course we will see how to get your post-production to the next level. You will also get all the content I use to teach (image sequences and videos), as well as different tools (presets, templates and scripts) to make everything go faster. This is the ideal option if you want to truly learn about 4K UHD time-lapse post-production editing so you can use it on your projects or sell them online, where one of the main things that stand out is quality.
