Video Insights allows you to process time-lapsed videos (e.g. from Brinno cameras). Please note that this type of footage is not ideal for traffic monitoring since it removes and compresses precious image information and we do not recommend making surveys using these cameras. Before uploading the time-lapse video into Video Insights, please contact our support via Intercom or e-mail for activation and read the Time-lapse Camera Processing Guidelines article.

Uploading your first time-lapse video

Before uploading a time-lapse video, it is necessary to upload the time-lapse footage to the Vault of your Project and create an appropriate Data Source for it. Once the processing option is activated, simply go to your Location and create a new Data Source with a Timelapse as a device type:

When the Data Source is created for your video footage, you can follow with sending the video for processing to the Data Source. Click on “Process” in the Data Source and choose the time-lapse video from the Vault or from external storage (DropBox, GDrive). In the video processing dialog, make sure to set a correct video end.


The price for time-lapse video processing is the same as for fixed camera video - 1 credit for 1 hour of video footage. The final price is calculated according to the real footage duration (stretched to original).
