I am looking to get a time-lapse photo sequence to this, (end of the world rapture thing) 1prob who will stop the camera? anyone know how to get round this problem?

I don't want my batteries to go flat coz none bothered to turn it off, I'm worried if it damages the camera.

Also could I get some software downloaded that will upload all the images to my pc make a video and uploaded on to you tube.

I appreciate any help, if you are however running around like a headless chickens because the world is ending and don't have any time for me, I will quite understand, although I think you will be acting quite selfish I will not hold it against you but don't ask me for any favours in the after life, however i do not think I will move onto the great downstairs or boiler room of the afterlife, hell no! Smile

have a nice life... Smile

Firstly Luis I would gladly spend my last hours on earth helping you. However, to solve a couple of your problems I think a little more forward planning was needed. I would have suggested an external battery pack for one, perhaps a Quantum.

Now I don't believe that the batteries expiring will damage the camera, and depending on how the world is about to end that may cause a lot more damage than a leaking battery!

The software you require is iStopMotion to create the movie from your images. Now again with some planning you could have written a wrapper to directly download from your camera to a laptop harddrive and use the directory to feed iStopMotion and then create a routine to automatically upload to YouTube. Now at this point I am presuming that you already have an account to make the automation possible, else it will fail when trying to log in.

I think if you are quick you can get a five day trial of iStopMotion here and as it is for five days you will not need to worry about it expiring before the video is uploaded.

Good luck.
