Late last week, Microsoft unveiled a new set of products that create smooth watchable timelapses from first-person shaky videos. Hyperlapse Mobile is an app available on Windows Phone (as well as Android) that offers users the ability to take and create smooth videos. The official app for Windows Phone just received an update in the Windows Phone Store, squashing some unnamed bugs. You can snag the updated app from the download link below.
Hyperlapse is actually pretty cool, if you missed the news last week. Developed by Microsoft researchers, Hyperlapse utilizes an algorithm that creates an approximate 3D model of the landscape being filmed, then identifies the dominant path that the camera took through said landscape. Hyperlapse will then stitch together bits and pieces of different frames that have the most overlap with each other to create a smooth and stable hyperlapse, rather than a shaky timelapse video.
