Weather Timelapse Movies
« on: 21 December 2006, 12:53:13 PM »
Hi everyone,

I have finally organised the weather timelapse sequences in the webcam section on Australian Severe Weather.   Thanks to the new webcam setup in September with the help of Ben Quinn, I've been able to archive high resolution images of the sky for the past 3 months.

http://australiasevereweather.com/video/timelapse.htm

AVI movies have been created for each day that significant clouds or weather occurred.  The pages are set up as a calendar so you can pick dates of interest. The AVI movies are quite spectacular. There are two sizes available so those who do not have a fast internet connection can download some if they wish.



Webcam images were taken every 3 minutes up until 15 November and every 2 minutes since. The AVIs animate the weather photos at 15 frames per second.

regards, Michael :)

I have reorganised the timelapse section and added new movies, bringing the section right up to date. There is now an index page devoted to thunderstorm days:

And another index page which I've put the most interesting non-storm day weather sequences:

It was taking a bit too much effort to continue with the earlier format.   If you only have a look at a couple of clips, I thoroughly recommend 31 Jan and 14 Feb on the storm page.

Regards, Michael

Just looked at these for the first time and have only looked at the 14th Feb. Wonderful stuff Michael...it is just awesome to see the transition during the course of the day! Highly recommended for all weather watchers :) The quality is quite excellent as well.

It's taken a while, but there is now a live timelapse animation available for both of the McLeans Ridges webcams. Check out the new options here:

A big thanks to John Barratt of http://www.theweatherchaser.com/ website for doing all the background work and also for the image archive which starts at 16th March 2009.
