What size is the SD card? How often are you taking the pictures? Average size of the JPG is about 2.5MB IRC, so divide space left on SD card by that, and see how many pictures you can take. Then use the number you want per minute or so figure to work out how many minutes of storage you have.rpiswag wrote:I want to make a Time Lapse Video that takes 5 mp pictures for 12 hours running on a raspberry pi 2 running raspbian with nothing but the default install. Do I have enough space? I want to compile the pictures into a video with the pi 2. I want all processing done on the pi 2 and nothing done on another pc. Can this be done? What commands with raspistill and what tool should I use to make the video? I would also like the video to be at 2592×1944 (the native picture resolution) if possible and I would like to to be compressed to save space.
Write a script in python to take pics with the intervals you need, subprocess.call() and threading.Timer() would do quite nicely.rpiswag wrote:So Storage is not a problem. How do use raspistill to take a picture every minute for 12 hours and what tool should I use that is the best overall. It would be nice if the tool uses all of the Raspberry Pi 2B's 4 cores.
Not a lot, you can't cut and paste out of a video into the command line....rpiswag wrote:What do you think of the tutorial that I found on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2b4aIirE48.
