Looking for a time-lapsed sunset video clip to use

    I am working on a video photo montage for my sister and her fiance for
    their wedding. For the finale I would like to show a photo of them
    embracing and superimpose them over a moving sunset. Does anyone have a
    time-lapse video they'd be willing to share, or know where I can find
    one for free or under ~$30? (God knows I've spent enough on gifts
    already!)
    Any leads are appreciated; duration needs only to be a few seconds, and
    quality needs to be good enough for a projector-based presentation.
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Another idea: any existing movies that might have a good one are fair
    territory in my mind... this is only for my sister and family to watch,
    so not something that I'd ever make money on... but of course I'd
    rather use a free-use one (and yes, I checked archive.org - didn't have
    any, and Getty was too expensive).

  3. Don't know the pricing on this one, but it's nice:

    This one has reasonable non-broadcast pricing:
    http://www.oceanfootage.com/stockfo...CKIE=5255c10ff059f8b95e1dc3618121bec69c06b9c5

    This one seems to have plenty of choices, and pricing at the $100 range:
    http://www.skytimelapse.com/sunsets.html

    This site has pricing of around $20:

    I found each of these within 5 minutes of reading your post by doing a
    search on Google using the term: time lapse sunset video. No offense, but
    you do know about search engines - don't you?

  5. According to the way your post read it seemed you had no ideas where to
    look. If you had some knowledge and wanted further assistance, why not say
    that? I call a spade a spade. You appeared clueless and therefore I treated
    you accordingly.

    I guess most would think a sunset is a perfect
    metaphor for a wedding, but there might be
    the odd optimist that thinks you should run it
    backwards and call it a sunrise :)

    Take a look at

    <http://www.archive.org/details/SummerSFSunset>

    The sunset is pretty bad. But, one of the reviewers comments that he
    has lots of sunset videos. Maybe you can contact him directly.

    If all else fails, get a sunset screensaver and video capture the
    screen?

  8. Can't do that - in the northern hemisphere, the sun moves from left to
    right when rising and when setting.

    If you run a sunset backwards, it goes from right to left and becomes a
    totally weird sunrise.

    There is a TV commercial (for a car, I think) that does that, and it
    bugs me every time.

    If you live in the southern hemisphere, just reverse all the
    directions...

    If you live close enough to the equator (within the tropics) it could
    work, since the sun rises and sets nearly vertically. It requires that
    your latitude be pretty close to the sun's current declination
    (astronomy talk for the equivalent of latitude).

    OTOH, maybe the OP could film a sunset of his own (using appropriate
    filters - don't want to cook the camera's detector) and use that in his
    video.

    HTH,
    Gino

  9. Nothing a little horizontal flip can't solve :)

    Speaking of universes... for a REALLY dramatic effect, rip the double
    sunset of Tantoine from Star Wars IV. If you position your people just
    right, maybe nobody will notice the second sun.

  12. That only works for people clever enough to think of it - i.e., not me
    :)

    You do have to make sure there's nothing recognizable on the horizon...
