Creating A Panoramic Time Lapse (PTZ Cameras)

A panoramic time lapse allows you to set the area of the visible image the camera can capture with movement.

The first step is to drag the rectangle in the Viewfinder to select the area you want to capture. When you have selected the area, click the Apply Button to see what the camera will capture. 

Click Next Step and complete the required fields, listed below.

Name: This is what you would like to name your time-lapse. Tip: Make it descriptive so that you can find it when looking at your list of time-lapses later!

Take Photos: There are three options provided in the dropdown menu for when the camera should capture images of your project for the time-lapse.

Between certain hours: This allows you to set the hours you want to capture time lapses. If you rarely have work continuously on the site, you could use this to set the start and end of the time when work is happening on the site and not take photos at night when no progress is happening.

Continuously: Captures images all day and night at the interval you set up in “take a picture every” field.

Once a day: Captures a single image each day at the photo time you enter in the “take a picture every” field.

Date Range: This is the start and end day you want to capture images during.

Beginning/Ending: When you have selected Between Certain Hours, this is where you set the beginning and ending time. Photos will not be captured outside of these hours.

Take a Picture Every: When you have selected Continuously or Once A Day, these are the hours and minutes you want images to be captured.
