How to create a time-lapse video from temporally different bands

Hi there,
I wish to create a time-lapse video of a region, which is separated by sentiel-2 bands.
It looks like this:

Is there a way to combine the images of the same week or month from both bands and create a time-lapse video from that?

Thanks for the help and best regards

Hi @CBuerger,

Unfortunately the feature of merging images together is not supported in the Timelapse module of EO Browser.

If you really need to make a time-lapse with merged images, you could use a more manual approach but it will be more work. By setting a time-span rather than a single date, you can return merged products.

You can then download the images in EO Browser and create a timelapse using a tool locally (e.g. imagemagick).

Perhaps of interest would also be the timelapse example from eo-learn.


The “timelapse” can actually be created directly in EO Browser, too. It’s not an actual timelapse, but rather an animation of Pins (that you can order in any way you want) - the tool is named Story (or Pin Story).

But using the timespan instead of a single date is still necessary to display data for more than one date at a time, as Maxim described.

That way, the use of imagemagick or other software locally is not necessary.

Hope this helps. Cheers.
