Read Time: 2 mins

Creating a timelapse is a great way to take your still images and create a video effect. If you don't have the time or opportunity to make b-roll video—and maybe even if you do—you can leave your camera in place and take a sequence of images over time to record a simple timelapse.

In this video from the course Video Editing in Final Cut Pro, you'll see how to create the effect right inside the app. You'll learn how to use plugins and effects to correct and smooth the effect to create a professional result.
