This is yet another take on how-to create a time-lapse video. In my case, a website updates a photo of the sky on a regular basis. I wanted to turn that into a time-lapse video and deploy to another, or possibly the same, website. I decided to use a Raspberry Pi 4 that was “sitting around.”
My project evolved as I tried different techniques and apps. I ended up creating a couple of bash scripts to do the job. I used the “ffmpeg” audio/video framework as it was bash command line friendly. I have tested my scripts on my Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspbian OS as well as on different Linux boxes running Ubuntu and Debian.
