Re: how can I get an .mp4 video file from the night lapse images of GoPro7?

Night lapse images are a series of photos. If you use a video editor, you can merge them into a time lapse and export as an mp4.

In most editors, you select import and select the first photo in the set. There is usually an option for importing image sequence which will automatically make a time lapse for you from the photos.

If you don't already have an editor, you can try one of these:

DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve
VSDC on Windows- http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor/download.
VideoProc https://www.videoproc.com/
HitFilmExpress https://hitfilm.com/express
ShotCut https://shotcut.org/download/
Lightworks http://www.lwks.com/
Avidemux http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/
Blender https://www.blender.org/download/
EZvid http://www.ezvid.com/download

You can usually find YouTube videos to help you out or use Google to find answers to how to use the editor you choose. DaVinci Resolve is the best of the bunch and is a professional video editor, but it can be a little harder to initially learn.

Thank you Daniel! After reading your response I realized I did this in Lightroom. I was stuck on why it wasn’t a .mp4 already when timelapses are! Thank you again and excellent resources with your links!!!

No problem. Post a link if you want to show off your work! Always cool to see what people are capturing.

Daniel, I wanted to add just in case others are reading this...  After you pull images into lightroom to process, you have to export images to a folder then use one the recommendations you posted.  In the past, I used GoPro studio which is not available anymore for some reason.  Also, I used Photoshop to create the videos.  This time I used Final Cut Pro. Here is link in Instagram.  It was a short video as I was just testing the night-laspe.  The new GoPro Hero7 ROCKS!!!
