I saw this on a National Geographic programs when they had recorded the sky for a few days and then make a few seconds long clip from it. What is this called?

  • \$\begingroup\$ I wanted the tag to be filming, but it didnt exsist and I need 300 rep to make a new tag, I didnt find any Filming forum so I went for Photography. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ We have a video tag. And, there is a whole sister site about audio and video production, at avp.stackexchange.com. Generally, film/video/cinematography questions are off-topic here and should be asked there, except when the answers are relevant to still photography. (And timelapse is an area where there is significant overlap.) \$\endgroup\$
