Hi-speed video

I've seen really cool hi-speed videos of road trips on UTube. How do they do that? I have a GoPro 5 Session.

Re: Hi-speed video

I'm guessing what your referring to is  hyperlapse video. There are two ways (you may count three) to do this with a GoPro, including the session 5. The way giving you most control would be to simply mount the camera on a moving object (like a car you mentioned in road trip videos), record for a while, then speed it up afterward using an editing software. 

 

It can be done without post processing by using the time lapse video mode on the camera. On a session go to camera settings, change the first icon to time lapse and set the next function as TL-VD (or use the app to select it). The advantage to this method is that it will give you a "hi-speed" video without any post editing and you don't have a hugely long video to work with for longer lapses. The disadvantage is it's sometimes hard to determine what interval you need as it take a bit of calculation. 

 

The third way way would be to use a standard time lapse setting and compiling all the photos later in a software. The only reason I've done this is to take advantage of some protunes settings since they are not available in time lapse video mode.
