By now, you’ve probably seen your fair share of timelapse videos: cityscapes, epic nature scenes, construction sites. Manipulating time in this fashion is almost always fun to watch, and applying this technique to a scene or event in your workplace is an engaging way to capture office life.

Every GoPro has a timelapse function built in. Shooting a timelapse video can be almost entirely hands-off, but some preparation is necessary to get the best results:

  • Use a tripod and lock pan and tilt so nothing will move.
  • Consider the duration of what you’re shooting and adjust the interval accordingly.
  • Make sure you have a good size SD card and a full battery.


The timelapse function will leave you with a bunch of JPEG images on your SD card that need to be combined and turned into a video. We made short screencasts that walk you through how to do this in the GoPro Studio App , Adobe Premiere , Final Cut X , and iMovie.
