Since my subject is waterfalls

How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua

I will use 6fps - six frames per second
How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua 21

I will be using six frames per second for my subject
How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua 25

So my movie will be approximately five minutes long

To compute the duration per frame

How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua

27

Go get your calculator
How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua 28

1800 frames divided by 6 frames per second
How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua 29

That gives you 300 seconds

How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua

30

The duration per frame will be 300 seconds divided by 1800 frames
How to Create Time - Lapse Video by Mia Padua 31

That gives you 0.16666667
