Timelapse Tool

by Fwiller in Scripts and Addons

Capturing Dyntopo is an Experimental Feature in v1.0.0. Enable that in the Addon Preferences (Experimental Settings->Dyntopo) to capture that data

What is TIMELAPSE Tool?

TIMELAPSE Tool is a Blender addon that records timelapse footage of your project in the background.


  • Capture Screenshots: Record your entire project window at a fixed interval

  • Capture from Camera: Record from the perspective of the camera in the scene

  • Animate Cameras: Record from cameras with animation keyframes

  • Multi-Camera Capture: Record from the perspective of multiple cameras in the scene simultaneously

  • Lock Shading: Lock the viewport shading settings of the timelapse capture

  • Generate Video from Image Sequence: Automatically create a timelapse video using the recorded image sequence

  • More to Come…


  • Blender 3.0 or above (older versions are not currently supported)

  • Windows (Should work on Linux, but hasn't been thoroughly tested. Not currently tested on Mac)

Road Map (Stay Tuned For Future Updates)

  • Shading Presets: save and load preset shading lock settings (very useful for green-screen setups)
  • Per-Camera Settings: currently all cameras share the same settings. This will let you change resolution, aspect ratio, shading options, etc. on a per-camera basis
  • Camera Animation Helper Tools: TIMELAPSE Tool cameras are free to animate just like any other camera in Blender, but I’d like to streamline this process specifically for setting up timelapse cameras
  • Improved User Interface: As people use this tool and give feedback, the UI will be updated to support the workflows of active users.
  • General Optimizations: Lots of work behind the scenes to improve the performance of this tool. This will always be an active pursuit.
  • MAC Support: I will be prioritizing this since there seems to be demand for it. (I may need people to help test this)
