Timelapse+ Studio: A fantastic Lightroom plug-in for time-lapse creators

Updated: May 20, 2023

Timelapse+ Studio is an impressive plug-in for Lightroom that allows you to quickly edit hundreds of files prior to assembling them into a video. This plug-in was built specifically for time-lapse creators and is extremely simple to use.

We have a coupon code at the end of this post if you wish to purchase this plug-in. This is a quick and honest review and we are not affiliated with the company.

Timelapse+ Studio Lightroom plugin review

On June 28, 2019, we uploaded a video and wrote a tutorial on our website showing you how to put together several photos into a time-lapse video, using Lightroom and any basic video editing software.

Shortly after making this tutorial, we wondered if there was a way to make this whole process faster and easier. We originally tried looking up if there was any way to export the time-lapse video straight out of Lightroom, but we were unable to find anything.

We instead stumbled upon a plug-in for Lightroom that is dedicated to time-lapses, called Timelapse+ Studio. We never tried any plug-in in the past, mostly because we didn't really want to learn how to install and use them, but we quickly changed our mind when we realized how easy it was to implement.

A little bit hesitant, we read through the home page and saw that one of our favorite time-lapse photographers, Adrien Mauduit, uses this plug-in regularly for his videos! You can check out Adrien's incredible work HERE.

Below you can see the few steps we go through from installing the plug-in to exporting all the edited files.

Installing the Plugin

To install any Lightroom plug-in, including Timelapse+ Studio, do the following:

  • Launch Lightroom

  • Go to File > Plug-in Manager

  • Select "Add" near the bottom left

  • Find the plug-in file in your computer and click on "Add plug-in"

  • Click on "Done" and… that's it!

We did not change any of the default features, and you can mess with that later if you want to tweak anything, in our case, the default options are perfectly fine.
