Well it took two weeks but I've finally got a dinosaur time lapse for you. This was taken with the camera module on a raspberry pi 2 over 5 days. It's 1201 frames at 24fps. I couldn't encode it on windows, it kept running out of memory (shocked!) so I used libav to do it on Ubuntu.
I'm not sure what's up with the horizontal lines, it might have something to do with the CFL bulb that I used to light the scene or it could be something totally unrelated.
Was this worth two weeks? I'm not sure but it was fun none the less.
