Instagram launched a new video editing application, Hyperlapse, that lets users take time lapse videos, this week and it's now going viral.
Previously people would have to set up cameras for hours on a tripod to get the time lapsed photography associated with quickly moving crowds, clouds or weather changes but now they can do all that with just an iPhone, according to USA Today. Hyperlapse also stabilizes images so users don't get the herky-jerky look of previous time lapse software. Instead, the video moves smoothly and almost seamlessly. (However if you do want the sweeping clouds or rising sun, you will likely still use a tripod unless you want to stand still outside for several hours holding your iPhone.)
