Growth Time Lapse Video - 1 min = 3 weeks

Hello all!

I've been playing with Time Lapse videos lately and I figured I'd pop over here to share. The video below is just over one min, and it represents 3 weeks of growth.

How do you think my growth compares with yours?
Could you also post brief specs of your tank? (IE Lights, ferts? Co2?)

I couldn't figure out how to embed this, so please click on the link below.

Thanks!

Thank you!!!

The interval ended up being about 10 min between shots. I took the pics every 120 seconds, but the movie was far too long, so I used the software to only process every 5th frame.

This was shot with a cheap little 1.3mp webcam, and a program called YAWCam, it is really easy actually and also runs my live stream so that I can check in on the tank when I'm on vacation.

For my next trick I want to shoot the same thing with replanting the tops instead of topping the plants but shoot it with an HD webcam, but I'll have to see if work will let me borrow one for a month,.. and that will have to be after I move.

Thanks for the interest and comments everyone!
