This is REALLY Cool: Create your OWN Google Street View Hyperlapse [Video]


----------------

Impressive, isn’t it? And the best thing? You too can create your own Google Street View hyperlapse by using this free tool.

Hyper-lapse photography – a technique combining time-lapse and sweeping camera movements typically focused on a point-of-interest – has been a growing trend on video sites. It’s not hard to find stunning examples on Vimeo. Creating them requires precision and many hours stitching together photos taken from carefully mapped locations. We aimed at making the process simpler by using Google Street View as an aid, but quickly discovered that it could be used as the source material. It worked so well, we decided to design a very usable UI around our engine and release Google Street View Hyperlapse.

  1. I’ve seen lots of cool videos online about various goggle map things you can do, see…etc. But I have to admit this felt pretty epic. Surreal almost.

  2. It’s very cool, but unless I’m missing something, you can’t set other points (only A and B) and most importantly you can’t save it in order to share it.
