GoodVision Video Insights platform supports processing of the time-lapse videos. Time-lapse cameras compress the footage with a certain ratio, and the result is a compressed video with a smaller duration. (e.g. 1 hour of real recording is compressed into a video file with 20 minutes duration)

While users might see the advantages in a smaller size of the final video file, they are actually removing the valuable image data needed for proper video-processing, which might result in lower data accuracy. So it's necessary to keep an eye on the low compression ratio during camera recording.

When preparing your time-lapse video footage, you shall follow the same guidelines for the standard camera processing.

Technical considerations
It is very important to keep the reasonable frames per second (FPS) ratio of your video recording. E.g. if the real duration of your video is 60 minutes and the compressed duration of the video (with 30 FPS) is 20 minutes, the compression ratio is 3 and the original stretched video file has 10 FPS which is higher than 3 and therefore valid. However, for the best results we recommend you to do not go below the 10 FPS for the original stretched video file.

You can follow the easy formula to validate your time-lapse videosĀ 

(video_fps / (real_duration[sec.] / compressed_duration[sec.])) >= 3
