Timelapse

About

A simple PHP script that takes screenshots in regular time intervals and then combines them into “timelapse”. Take a look at this video to see an example of a timelapse.

Inspired by Ludum Dare, ChronoLapse and Linux Desktop Time-lapse Creation Script by winferno.

Usage

  • ./timelapse start [interval] [offset] - starts timelapse script with given interval in seconds (default: 10). ‘offset’ parameter sets the initial frame name. By specifying it, you can continue a recording that was previously interrupted.
  • ./timelapse compile [framerate] - compiles all screenshots in current directory to a movie. It starts from 0000.jpg. If not specified, framerate defaults to 10 frames per second.
  • ./timelapse clean - removes all .jpg files from current directory

Required tools

  • php
  • scrot
  • ImageMagick
  • ffmpeg

Troubleshooting

If for some reason typing ./timelapse [args] fails to execute the script, try: php timelapse [args].
