Create a timelapse from GoPro images with FFmpeg and save it with
MJPEG video encoding.
ffmpeg -r 6 -f image2 -pattern_type glob -i '*.JPG' -s 4000x3000 -c:v mjpeg -q:v 10 ./the-timelapse-video.mov
cd some/directory/with/gopro/images - The command will work in current directory.
-r 6 – 6 fps.
-pattern_type glob -i '*.JPG' – Every JPG in current directory.
-s 4000x3000 – Using GoPro's original still image resolution for the output video.
-c:v mjpeg – MJPEG video codec.
-q:v 10 – Quality 10. Use 2-31. 2 is highest quality.
See FFmpeg documentation for reference.
Now drag this video into a video editing software to make post editing.
git push to deploy your code, and nvm
to use seperate node versions per project.
- A Ubuntu server with Upstart (Ubuntu 14, 16, etc).
- A user for the project. This user will be called
the examples below.
- SSH access to this user.
- nvm installed on
myproject user account.
.nvmrc file in your project.
Step 1. Setup in the user account
SSH in as
Create the bare git repo that you will push to for deployment.
git init --bare
Paste the script below.
mkdir -p $REPO_DIR
git --work-tree="$REPO_DIR" --git-dir="$GIT_DIR" checkout -f
git --work-tree="$REPO_DIR" checkout-index -a --prefix="$NEW_DIR/"
cd "$NEW_DIR" && nvm i && npm i --production
rm -f "$CURRENT_DIR"
ln -s "$NEW_DIR" "$CURRENT_DIR"
sudo restart myproject
- Initiate environment.
- Config variables.
- Make a copy of the project to a new directory.
- Build the project.
- Relink to the latest version and restart the service.
Now set execute rights on the script.
chmod u+x hooks/post-receive
Step 2. Setup as root
Switch to root.
sudo su -
Create the service description file by editing
start on runlevel 
exec /home/myproject/.nvm/versions/node/v$NODE_VERSION/bin/node .
- What runlevel this service will start on.
- Environment variables.
- What user and group id we will run as.
- Make sure the service respawns automatically if it crashes.
cd into the latest deployment and start with the
correct version of Node.
Add visudo entry with command
visudo and add this to the bottom.
myproject ALL=NOPASSWD: /sbin/restart myproject, /sbin/start myproject, /sbin/stop myproject
Step 3. Test deployment
On you local machine, add the remote and push to it.
prod in the example
below is the name of the deployment environment, prod is short for produciton.
git remote add prod firstname.lastname@example.org:myproject.git
git push prod master
Note: The first time it will fail to restart the service
because it isn't running. I recommend that you uncomment that line
the first time.
- Check if service is running, restart it otherwise start it.
You are missing ZURB-Foundation. Install it with
gem install zurb-foundation
If you've set up your iPhone/iPad to sync calendars with Google Apps over Exchange, but are not getting all calendars, there's one thing more you need to do.
Go to https://m.google.com/sync/settings/ on your iPhone/iPad and log in with your Apps credentials. Make sure you set the language to English.
