1. Made and publish the Tutorial videos in Japanese for LRTimelapse4

As one of the activities that I could contribute to the development of the Timelapse world, we made a series of tutorial videos in Japanese for LRTimelapse4, which is a revolutionary timelapse processing software that is developed by a German photographer, Mr. Gunther Wegner, so that I could introduce it to all the Japanese timelapse aficionados.

BASIC edition ((Part1 - Part3), Holy Grail edition, and qDslrDashboard edition compose all the series in five video files.

LRTimelpase4 is a software that processes ugly sequence which is taken under large and consecutive variation of the light in the dawn or twilight into a smooth movie.
Especially, for the sequence from the twilight to the starry sky, or starry sky to the dawn, a Holy Grail technique is used to film, which requires the consecutive change of camera settings, but it has been believed that processing it into a smooth movie is impossible for a long time.
This is a tutorial video of the software, LRTimelpase4 that enables us to resolve this problem completely.

In the qDslrDashboard edition, which is the last edition of the series, a software that realized an automatic filming of complicated Holy Grail, is introduced, so that people can utilize
LRTimelapse4 for 150%.

We certainly hope that our little effort could be of any help for those who love a timelapse filming.
