Zeitraffer is a simple tool for creating a time-lapse movie from multiple images.
Just select a directory containing image files (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, BMP or RAW), and press Export button to make a movie. Various options such as file order, frame rate, output size and file format are available.
- Now supports TIFF, PNG, BMP and RAW images
- Fixed a bug on exporting a movie with particular output size

It does ONE thing really well - Zeitraffer is literally an app I was dreaming of while working on a stop motion project several years ago. It converts still pics to movies with variable framerates and variable output sizes, and that's it. Aside from the pre-defined output aspect ratio mentioned previously, there's not a single thing this app needs (and even then, that would be a nice add-on, but the app works fine as is.)
Doesn't work - Opens up grey and dead. Doesn't work.

Great for what it is. - I really like the app. It needs a drop-down list of common aspect ratios and resolutions, along with the custom that it has. I'd like the option to use every nth photo. I'd like to be able to choose a subset of the photos in a directory as a segment to process. I have a high resolution 4:3 format camera, I'd like to be able to define a 16:9 region to use for the output. But for what it does, it's great! My kids love it when I show them a time-lapse of the surnise, or clouds going by. Anyway, I'm really happy with the app, and look forward to updates!
Very nice application - This application makes a great movie and saves a lot of time trying to mess around with FCP, iMovie etc. A nice thing is that once the movie is made, one can actually EDIT the movies properties — not so easy to do with individual photographs on FCP or iMovie. This program is much appreciated! Thanks.
pan app - Great app, I am having a lot of fun with it. Very easy to use once you understand the settings, it took me about 10 minutes with some trial and error. I take my panoramic photos and turn them into works of art. I love the fisheye effect.
Less than 1 minute to completion - I’ve spent the last few days trying to turn my still pictures into a time lapse video. Slide shows inherent in photography software (I was using trial version of Lightroom) won’t do multiple frames per second, so time lapse doesn’t really work. It’s just a one second slide show—not the same as time lapse movies. iMovie was difficult to work with since I’m new to it, so I couldn’t really make that work either. As I continued to research plug in options to turn my stills into a movie, I came across Zeitraffer in the app store and was amazed by the solid 4 and 5-star ratings; someone’s always unhappy about something and delivers up a 1-star to document their frustration. I decided to give it a try…and was amazed. I had the app downloaded, opened and my photgraphs inmported to it in less than a minute. It did it’s thing and said “Done.” I went to the file location and clicked the file which played perfectly the first time. None of the things I tried previously were as simple and effortless. I concur with other comments that turning stills into a time lapse movie seems to be the ONLY thing this app does, but given the level of effort I’d previously spent trying to turn my time lapsed stills into a movie, this app was nothing short of amazing. As long as you do the image tweaking on your camera as you take the pictures rather than try to correct images post-capture, this app should work fine. I’m pleased and can’t wait to get out with the camera and do some more creative time lapse shooting.
Great little app - I needed to create animations of 7 different weather maps using 10 screenshots taken with Precise Screenshot for a 10-day soaring contest weather briefing. The app worked great and was fast and easy to use. It had only one small glitch in the interface when trying to enter the frame rate. If I first entered the name of the file then clicked in the frame rate box the default frame rate would be selected but when I tried to enter a new rate the typing would appear in the file name instead. If I used the minimal file dialog and tabbed through to the frame rate box it would work. Eventually, clicking in the frame rate box would work as expected but there is a slight problem with the interface in my experience. I would recommend this app for anyone needing to make animations or time lapse movies from stills.
