    With desktop video and non-linear editing, time lapse can be realized simply by compressing several hours of real-time, full-motion video into a shorter time span. I used that technique when I had to document a safety exercise at a ski resort. The entire “incident” was recorded using multiple cameras. One of them was locked down on a wide shot, and I was able to take the .avi file in Adobe Premier Pro CS5, and compress the time from 5 hours to about 5 minutes, and it served its purpose well. Time lapse using still cameras still has its own merits, I suppose.
