    Time lapse sunset while my buddy is in the big Case tractor harvesting beans the night before the supermoon!
    Here is a pre-render photo of a pan of the same evening. [​IMG]

    Cool Video! Like the time lapse! Do you just stay stationary and speed up the video in editing?

    I did a 10 minute flight, and then put it into Premiere Pro. Color corrected and sped up 6,000%. That gives about 8-10 seconds. Then exported that to 1080p29.97. Brought that back into premiere and did a warp stabilizer. That's why it's nearly perfect! Isn't that combine cool?

    To me it sounds terrifying! Can't see the trees and other obstacles using your camera OR your eyes!

    I guess you stay close?

    I'm just a beginner, maybe after a dozen hours or so I'll try night flight :)

    It's really quite simple............... once you know the height and location of the trees and obstacles, you simply stay at an altitude above them. Height is your friend.

    I was actually about 1/2 mile away LOS; and 212 feet AGL. I really wanted the effect of the combine moving in the field to be an afterthought.
