Description

This app helps you create beautiful flicker-free sunset, cloud, city scape, and day to night time lapse easily. Shoot in auto-exposure modes, TLDF will remove the flickers for you!

Key Features:
1. Most advanced deflickering algorithm for timelapse. Non-linear adjustment of pixel brightness.
2. Noise Reduction and Blending (lighten and average).
3. Partial Noise Reduction or Blending: Choose the area where you want to apply noise reduction or blending with masking features.
4. Edit key frames and TLDF interpolates intermediate frames for smooth transition. The edit feature includes: color temperature, tint, vibrance, saturation, exposure, contrast, highlight, and shadow adjustments.
5. Set Reference Area for optimal deflickering. For most cases, it is not necessary to use this feature. Use it when large area of image is naturally flickering (e.g. shadow of clouds on ground, reflection of sky on moving ocean tide, and large artificial lights that turn on and off). Set the reference area to exclude the area where natural flickering occurs.
6. Support RAW and most of the popular image formats as input. Also support video as input.
7. Output highest quality JPEG images and uncompressed 8-bit or 16-bit TIFF images. The output images have the same size as the input images.
8. Output video in H.264 (up to 4K), H.265 (HEVC), ProRes 422 HQ, and ProRes 4444 with resolution up to 8K. ProRes codecs generate video with 10+ bits per pixel.
9. 16-bit Editing and Input/Output. For input that has more than 8-bit color depth including ProRes videos and 16-bit RAW or TIFF images, and if TIFF or ProRes video is chosen as output, TLDF will automatically edit them with 16-bit color depth.
10. Support for multi-core CPUs. TLDF automatically detects the number of cores in your CPU and take advantage of them by rendering in parallel.

The following are a few example workflows:
Option 1 (Fast): Import JPEG images -> Edit and Preview -> Render and Output JPEG and/or H.264 or HEVC videos.
Option 2 (High Quality): Import RAW images -> Edit and Preview -> Render and Output TIFF and/or ProRes 422 or ProRes 4444 videos.

What's New

Version 2.3.3

Added two big features:
1. Users are able to set Reference Area for optimal deflickering. For most cases, it is not necessary to use this feature. Use it when large area of image is naturally flickering (e.g. shadow of clouds on ground, reflection of sky on moving ocean tide, and large artificial lights that turn on and off). Set the reference area to exclude the area where natural flickering occurs.
2. Users are able to edit key frames and TLDF will interpolate the edit settings for other frames for smooth transition. The edit feature includes: color temperature, tint, vibrance, saturation, exposure, contrast, highlight, and shadow adjustments.

This version also includes some bug fixes to make TLDF more stable.

Exactly what I needed

This app does just what it says. I’d recommend trying the free version first, and if you like it pick up this version.

I’ve searched for apps to remove timelapse flicker, and they all seem to either be for Windows or are expensive/complicated and geared towards professionals. Until I stumbled upon this, there didn’t seem to be anything for a hobbest who just wanted a flicker-free timelapse. Yesterday morning I decided to create a timelapse and then as I was reviewing the results I remembered why I originally stopped making them - the stupid flickering. Really happy I found this!

This app did not improve my time lapses

I worked very hard trying to get this app to improve minor flicker in two different image sequences. It either left the sequence about the same or made it worse (more flickery). I tried TLDF on large file-size image sequences, reduced file-size image sequences, on video files produced from both TLDF and non-TLDF image sequences (yes, I tried running it twice), and it never really improved the flicker. To make things worse, on a dark sequence it added-in very large blobs of noise. I wasted hours of time trying this out.

And there is no help or manual to speak of.

It is meh

I tried 2 clips. One was better than the other. One was against the sun and the orginal has more dynamic range than the output. It's unusable on longer timelapses. It's chugged away for ~6 hours (!) on a 4K timelapse of 30 seconds. CPU at 100%, apparently not utilising multiple cores.

Other gripes:

- UI feels unpolished. Silly things like it doesn't remember settings (like last used directories, desired output type)
- The output file of a 356Mb input is magically transformed into 6.7Gb whilst introducing less dynamic range. So less quality for ~20 times the file size.
- Did I mention it is slow?

Anyway, results vary. For me, definitely not worth US$ 20.
