This question already has an answer here:

Soon I will to try out my first time lapse session with a dolly that I built, for that reason I would like to ask to anyone that already did timelapse photography what are the best settings that you used:

  • Time interval between each shot
  • Step/distance between each shot
  • output video fps

I only thought of these 3 settings, but if you think there are others that should be taken into consideration please do tell me.

This is so vague I'm afraid there is no one answer. It is like asking what exposure parameters of a daytime image. How would one ever know! I suggest you try some test shots before the sequence. –  Itai Mar 26 '13 at 23:33
    
Thanks @mattdm, I looked for a while I thought that it was pretty strange that there wasn't any question like this already. –  nuno_cruz Mar 26 '13 at 23:40
    
So does mattdm's link help? If it covers much of your question, you might want to alter your question to ask about anything specifics the other topic doesn't cover –  MikeW Mar 27 '13 at 5:03
    
@MikeW there is nothing else I will delete this question in 2 days. –  nuno_cruz Mar 27 '13 at 9:39

No need to delete, if someone searches for daytime timelapse they may find this and can follow the link to the other question. –  MikeW Mar 27 '13 at 9:41

If it helps, I did a time lapse of some work in my garden, I set it to aperture priority of f8 (nice wide angle) to get as much as possible in focus and when for a 15 minute interval.

Video time lapse I Google's Picasa, which I can't find online ! soon as I can, I'll post it.
