Photoshop or Lightroom for processing time lapse?

6 months 4 days ago #635602 by Tim Wiener
I see you can create time lapse in both of these programs.   I was hoping I can get a little advice on which is easier to squeeze through any learning curve?  

All I need to know which is easier, and from there I'll jump into YouTube and start watching a ton of video's on it.  

Thanks for helping me save a little time!

If you use Lightroom, you'll need something like LR Time Lapse 5

Neither of them will produce a timelapse video from the stills.

You'll want a tool to minimize flickering (LR/Timelapse, or TLDF (Windows), or others) and then create the video.

...which, if you watch to the 6:15 mark, he's using LRTimelapse.

As already suggested.

If you are an Adobe subscriber, your better off using Photoshop and Premier Pro

Define "better"?

And what does being a subscriber have to do with it? Plenty of folks have older versions of PS and Premiere?

Also: your suggestion might not be correct. Timelapses (of stars) introduce flicker, oddly enough, and that has to be mitigated. The tools mentioned herein help with that.

+1 as already mentioned LR/Timelapse.  Really good option and shorter learning curve than other options.

You color correct and edit your photos in Lightroom, then pull them into  LR Time Lapse.  So you are technically still using Lightroom.
