    Timelapse video/picture

    How can we set up a time lapse video, all I currently have is a Microsoft Lifecam webcam and a laptop.

    We have a new building going up soon and we would like to time lapse the erecting of it.

    Not familiar with the camera so may not be suitable but the Webcam Timershot utility in the Microsoft Powertoys springs to mind.

    Quite a few ways to do it with Linux, but not looked at it for a couple of years. Not much help I know, but gives you an avenue to look down

    Time Lapse Photography

    Had quite a discussion on it, so I don't know if that will help at all?

    Tilaphos (other software exists), £20 webcam, old (xp) laptop.

    Ended up with 50,000 photos and counting. Using a linux box + jhead + mencoder to make sense of them (rename to date-time, convert to avi).

    You can use a Raspberry Pi - this chap: time lapse | Raspberry Pi built his own rig to move the camera along a track over a length of time, but I'm sure his explanaion will cover making a basic non-moving system, too.
