How to process you MAX timelapses

Processing Your Photos

0. Download GoPro Player (optional)

To process videos, you’ll need to download a piece of software called GoPro Player, available here:
This is an optional step. GoPro Player is a useful tool for viewing your images in 360.

1. Import and prepare your raw photos

After shooting, copy the files for each segment of the tour onto your computer using the MicroSD USB card reader.
Have a look at the photos captured.
In my case, often the first and last 20 photos will be me setting up the camera or stopping. Occasionally I am also disturbed mid-tour (usually by animals).
The photos are stitched on the camera, so you only have to remove any unwanted photos before publishing elsewhere.
1.0.1 A note on filename format
The photo filename is split into 3 identifying parts (I'll use GSAC0857.jpg as an example):
  • GS: always the same. Can be used to identify a photo taken on the MAX.
  • AC: each time you start and stop the timelapse the latter will increase by one (AA, AB, AC, AD...)
  • 0857: increases by one with each photo in the timelapse
This can be useful information to know when organising tours. For example, you might shoot sequences over multiple shoots. In such cases, knowing the filename behaviour might help you organise them.
