Microsoft Hyperlapse is an application for stabilize and accelerate videos with enough apparent results in some situations. It could be said that, for now, it is the best alternative to the Hyperlapse of Instagram, which is only available for iPhone.
I’ve been using Microsoft Hyperlapse since it was a beta, and the truth is that the application has still much to improve, but at least seems to go in the right direction, with the incorporation in its latest update of two of the features most requested by users: support for record videos in Full HD and recording in the SD card.
Both functions are now available in their latest update available on Google Play, but are disabled by default. To activate them, provided you have a compatible mobile phone, you must go to the settings of Microsoft Hyperlapse, before starting a new project.
Still failing quite
I admit I have a love-hate relationship with Microsoft Hyperlapse, because the application is not quite finished and the crashes and closures are rather frequent, sometimes meaning that all your work recording disappears forever.
New built-in options, both support Full HD and SD card recording are no exception, and are also a source of errors that application does not care to explain. For example, in my tests It always gives me error when activating support for 1080 p, without any explanation or alternative. Turning it off does work, but to do this you must close the project and job loss.
I’ve had more luck with the recording on the external memory, which Yes worked me correctly. This feature is very welcome, because long-term projects can enough space and quickly put an end to the internal memory of the phone.
As a curiosity, this update includes not a new feature, but a reminder: You can also use this application to stabilize video, without making it more fast. All you have to do is put the speed to 1 X (in this case keeps the sound). It make sense, no?
