How does the Timelapse Builder work?
From the myTikee cloud platform, the Timelapse Builder allows you to create a professional-quality timelapse in just a few steps using advanced image processing and photo selection algorithms specifically developed by Enlaps.
The Timelapse Builder is only available with myTikee Storytelling or myTikee Storytelling + RGPD subscriptions.
You can create your video according to the following parameters:
Auto: Let Timelapse Builder decide the best parameters for your video. You can always go back to each step and change the options automatically selected.
Manual: Choose each parameter of your timelapse video yourself.
2. Image selection
Current selection: The temporal filters and Artificial Intelligence filters set on the Editing page of your point of view are taken into account for the generation of your timelapse video.
Smart Selection : The temporal filters set on the Editing page of your point of view are taken into account for the generation of your timelapse video. The artificial Intelligence filters are not taken into account. A time consistency is kept within your images.
- Clear sky: Only images with a clear sky are selected.
- Clouds : Only images with cloudy sky are chosen, recommended if the Tikee is installed facing the sun.
3. Basic video enhancement
Advanced smoothing: Smooths the transitions between images.
Three possible intensity levels: light, medium, high
Pictures Enhancement: Corrects the contrast, brightness and colorimetry of images.
Three intensity levels available: light, medium, high
Anti-Flicker: Corrects brightness differences between images to prevent flickering in your video.
4. Advanced Video Enhancement
Stabilization: Reduces vibrations between frames, if your Tikee has moved slightly during shooting.
Only available for images taken by a Tikee.
Pan & Zoom: Spherical Pan & Zoom, a new technology that comes close to the Immersive View, set in the Pan & Zoom tile on the Editing page of your point of view before launching the Timelapse Builder.
Classic Pan & Zoom (not spherical) for images not taken by a Tikee.
If you activate the Pan & Zoom, your export will be in FHD resolution.
Relighting: Minimize shadow areas for a perfect match of your photos lighting whatever the weather conditions, based on deep learning.
Add watermark: Add a watermark in the bottom left corner of your video, image to upload in the Extras tile on the Editing page of your point of view.
Add date : Add the date of the shooting of the photos in the bottom right corner of the video.
Three possible formats : month - year / day - month - year / hour - day - month - year
- FR : day - month - year - time
- EN : month - day - year - hour AM / PM
Target duration : Duration of your timelapse video.
Video name : Name of your export.
The video generation takes a few minutes (one hour maximum). A download link will be sent to you in a notification on myTikee and by email when it is ready.
You can also share your timelapse video directly from your Exports on the left menu on myTikee.
How to generate a timelapse video with the Timelapse Builder?
On the Editing page of your viewpoint, in the Extra tile, click on the Timelapse Builder button.
Choose the settings you want to apply to your timelapse video or let Auto mode decide the best settings for your video.

What to do if you don't have access to the Timelapse Builder or to some parameters?
If you have just launched a Timelapse Builder generation, it is not possible to create a new export on this same point of view while your timelapse video is being generated.
Please make sure that the Storytelling features are active on your myTikee account.
