Our friends over at Syrp recently got in touch with us to tell us about a great motion time-lapse tutorial they put together.
In the video Mark Gee an award winning photographer, time-lapse filmmaker and digital effects supervisor talks about the process, equipment and software he uses to create incredible astrophotography time-lapse sequences.
Featured in the video is Syrp’s Genie and Magic Carpet (an amazing slider that we featured here).
