    Certainly no noise processing. I do sharpening and a tiny bit of contrast but that's it. The high ISO performance of the D700 is indeed amazing but I wish I could get the family treasurer to make a better decision between a D800 and food on the table. I understand it's even more impressive!

    Will you be shooting the Orionids tonight?

    Nice howto, but I have a few suggestions.

    I think preserving aspect ratio is more important than forcing the images to be exactly 1920x1080; otherwise the images may look weird due to stretching/shrinking of width/height to exactly fit 1920x1080. If you remove the ! then the aspect ratio will be preserved and width or height (whichever is biggest) will be limited to your declared values. Alternatively, if you just declare 1920, then "width given, height automagically selected to preserve aspect ratio", and if you just declare x1080 then "height given, width automagically selected to preserve aspect ratio" (see ImageMagick Image Geometry for more options).

    The -sameq option has been removed upstream. Also see sameq does not mean "same quality". Encoding to high-quality H.264 would provide excellent quality. See the CRF section of the FFmpeg and x264 Encoding Guide.

    I also recommend leaving out -s hd1080 since you already resized the images with mogrify, and -s hd1080 will force a resize to 1920x1080, ignoring aspect ratio.

    Thanks for the recommendations
    I will make some tests first and then change the needed lines!

    Glad you figured it out on your own too, but go ahead and share your solution. I'm not having any luck figuring out where Type.pm is supposed to come from. The script failed not finding Magick.pm and that was easy. It was in the perlmagick package. "Type" is too generic a term and I'm having trouble with my searches.

    Usually all these perl libraries follow this package naming scheme in the repositories: libXXX-perl

    If you see the source code, it is using File::Type library. So search for lib file type perl like this
    Code:
    apt-cache search lib file type perl
    You will get a bunch of results and I think it is this one you need: libfile-type-perl

    Yep...Thanks CyberAngel...

    Here's the next failed dependency:

    Can't locate Term/ProgressBar.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.14.2 /usr/local/share/perl/5.14.2 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.14 /usr/share/perl/5.14 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /home/dolive/bin/timelapse-deflicker.pl line 26.

    I assumed a curses type thing but libcurses-ui-perl didn't help.

    But I did find "libterm-progressbar-perl" had the right file.

    Would be nice to let other people know what you did to solve the PEARL module issue. I ran into the same problem. Thanks.

    Re: HOWTO: Make Time Lapse Videos from Photographs

    Hello,

    Nice tutorial. Just one problem for me. I've got an output.avi of say, 89MB, and a MKV of 100M. What's the best option to compress that properly.

    I use following command line to convert it:
    avconv -y -i output.avi -c:v libx264 -preset slow -crf 15 output.mkv
