    i have some software that will allow me to make a time-lapse video
    with my webcam. I made one today, but it went TOO fast! Does anyone
    know how to slow things down? i have it set at 30 frames per second.
    it says take 1 frame every (blank) seconds. then it says playback
    rate (images per second) is 10. How do i slow things down a bit, but
    still have a time-lapse video? what numbers do i need to change?

    I thought a 'time-lapse' had to take 1 from every <n> seconds, but
    playback was always at (nominal) 30 fps.

  3. It would have been helpful to identify your software.
    We can't tell from your question whether you ran out of
    frames before the end of the action you were trying to
    capture? Or whether you got everything, but it just
    plays too quickly?
    Since you didn't identify the software (or anything else,
    for that matter) there's not much we can offer.
    What does that mean? 30FPS is "normal" video speed
    (at least here in NTSC-land). Dunno why "time-lapse"
    would have anything to do with 30 FPS?
    So what rate did you set? Or is it a secret?
    How did you arrive at 10?

    Can you change both the record and playback rates?

    You change either the record speed and/or the playback
    rate. But without any details, hard to say which (or both).
