Given the large number of photographs typically taken during a vacation or trip, working with them effectively can be difficult. Time Lapse Assembler gives Mac users a way to make simple videos out of their albums quickly.
Time Lapse Assembler for Mac is available as freeware, with only a one-time request for (voluntary) donations. The program's small size makes installation and setup quick and easy. Time Lapse Assembler is up and running in less than a minute. The simple interface lacks bells and whistles, and the program has only a few features, namely options for different video formats and the time for each photo frame. The default frame rate is too quick for its intended use and cycles the photos much too quickly. (It's not the intended function, but one can imagine this program being used to make stop-motion animation videos.) The resulting movies were clean and operated effectively. Unfortunately, some of the photos appeared stretched, likely due to different photo orientations begin forced into one video size. Some work with the original photos is necessary for the best video quality. These basic videos are easy to import into more complete software, such as iMovie.
For those seeking a free tool that turns a collection of photographs into a video simply and quickly, Time Lapse Assembler for Mac is a good option; if you need additional features, look elsewhere.
