Quick Intro

Making time lapse videos easier.

    Fun! I had a few problems like 500 errors from the server and I never could get my video to render :-/

    I wish the steps to make the video like saving the images, rendering the video and downloading were either enabled when the previous finished or was done in sequence for you. Click a button, see progress, video starts downloading.

    I loved the orion skin!

    Great project!

    KISSmetrics

    Timelapse video is somewhat time consuming to create. This helps reduce the time to create and process these videos. That's neat and has potential to be fun.

      Thanks for the feedback & vote! This project is something I've wanted to create for years now, started toying with the idea in flash before node.js or getUserMedia existed. Really happy with the way web technology has evolved!

    Better - worked now mostly. The downloaded video didn't work, but that's OK.

    I like it :)

      Pretty sure you didn't do anything wrong ;) I think there was something going on with MongoDB. Restarted it and the server and it doesn't seem to hang for me now.

      Mind giving it a try again?

    Such a shame you didn't manage to complete it, cool idea and nice implementation.

      Thanks for the feedback, I was able to fix the issue and render video should work now. Unfortunately there isn't a progress bar for the video rendering but you should see a "Download Video" button within a minute.

      Hey @overra Was able to download videos as myvideo.mp4 but they play without images in MPC, hopefully it's just an issue my end.

      Interesting, do you have VLC to try playing it with? I don't have a Windows machine to try it myself.

    Neat idea. Wish it worked. Why does it require login? Twitter OAuth timed out.

    • overra
      contestant

      Authentication provides a unique ID for each user so the app knows who the images belong to.

      There was an issue with the xargs command (difference between osx and ubuntu) and I was told that as long as there were no major code changes it could be fixed. With that said, video rendering should work now.

      Not sure what's going on with twitter but I just tried it with another twitter account and I see what you mean. However, I was able to login with twitter after going back to mopic.co and trying twitter again.

  • contestant

    The idea behind mopic is a good one and you made a nice interface fr it but the issue with video rendering makes this app nearly useless.

      Thanks for the feedback! Video rendering should be working now if you'd like to give it another try.

    really sad that it doesn't generate video

    • overra
      contestant

      If you have the time, give it another try. Recently fixed the issue that prevented the video from rendering. Thanks!

  • contestant

    The Onion Skin feature is radical! It's a pity that render isn't working. But that happens when you only have 48 hours. Easy to see the potential in this one.

      Thanks for your vote! I've figured out what broke in production, might be able to fix it if I get approval!

      If do you manage to sneak a change in, let me know! Our whole API bugged out and doesn't talk to do our front-end. We deployed with test data :\

    • overra

      Should be working now, give it a try!

    IOKI

    The idea seems nice - social integration would be useful and for sure a mobile app. It's a shame the production version doesn't work though.

    • overra
      contestant

      Thanks for the feedback! I have a lot of plans for this project, including social integration, mobile app and more.

      I was really disappointed that ffmpeg failed, it took over an hour to compile it and it finished just before the end of the competition.
