Project Description

(python) script for automatic timelapse machine that makes the images, make the video and post it online.

###

Hi,

I am doing a personal project to make an automatic timelapse machine that makes the images, make the video and post it online. I am using a Canon 500D, Raspberry Pi with 2 external harddrives and a weatherproof case.

I have all the hardware and found a lot of inspiriting YouTube videos, blogs and websites for the software. Also lots of scripts available online, but nothing I can combine to a (python3) script that’s suits all my needs. (I don’t know how to code hardcore ;-), but understand the basics)

Here is the description how I like to get a script that’s runs after booting my Raspberry and makes all automatic the images, video and post it online:

###

Kill the running processes if needed (learned this online)

=PHOTO’S=

Making timelapse photo’s (it have to run every day at a starting time and the time have to be adjustable)

starting at 06:00

stop at 08:00

Set the settings in the camera: iso, F-stop and shutter speed (the focus is set manually)

Save photo’s to external harddrive (A)

Make folder with name: todays date + starting time timelapse

Rename images if needed

Optional on/of: delete folder 14 days old (for storage saving)

=VIDEO=

If timelapse photo’s is completed start with next process, making the video

Make video of photo’s just taken, with adjustable settings, into .MP4 (or extension that works with all post I like to do)

Save videos to external harddrive (B)

(so there are 2 external harddrives, A for images and B for video storage)

=POSTING ONLINE=

If timelapse videos is completed start with next process, posting the video online.

I like to post the video to the following locations/platforms:

Wordpress website

Instagram

Facebook

The post have to get a textual description of location, time started, etc etc.

###

I like to get a fixed budget for writing the script that’s does all above. Also within the script a description what the code is for and what I have to adjust to get a different output.

And also a description what I have to do to run the script with booting if the raspberry losses power and boot if power is up again.
