I have the chance to make a time lapse video. But my question is does anyone know what the time gap between captures should be? 2mins? 3mins? 5mins? 45 seconds?
I am going to start the video when he pops his top.......... I have some time I think before I have to start.

Hm, I'd go with like 2 min then. Be sure to post it here, you probably were already planning to do that.

i personally would do the 45 seconds. you might miss something otherwise.

but if you camcorder dosen't have the time for 45 seconds then do the longer( 2 minutes) so you make sure you catch the whole thing

Ya, now that I thought about it a little Ryan, I'd go with 1 min. Does your cam do that?

You can set a short time then if the footage is too long you can always speed it up on editing or just cut few frames.

Is the T you're shooting usually a fast molter or slow?

Ok he's done, and suprisingly not mature. The cast off molt was at 5.5" I am stunned really that he's not mature. Guess Ill have a big boy on my hands someday.

Im working on posting the video now.....................

Awesome! All of the flexing at the end was amazing. I guess I never noticed them working out the joints so much. Why did you decide to stop recording before he righted himself? I was waiting for the flip.

On the higher end webcams, I think 50 bucks and up they have a time lapse setting. You can have it capture a frame in any spacing you want. This one was shot every 2 minutes... that was 2+ hours made into a minute. Next time I think Ill make it every 45 seconds just so it looks a bit smoother and not so ragged.

Wow he is handsome - Seeing those lovely vibrant colours (plus all eight legs intact etc etc) is one of the best bits of watching your T moult. Excellent video - very educational. My partner has seen my T's moulted skins but not the actual process, so this was a real learning curve for him.
