[TLC120 FAQ] Settings and Record

Learn how to setup the TLC120 properly before you hit the record button.

TLC120 is the best process recorder. It allows you to setup different settings according to where you are shooting. Whether you are in your studio, create on a street, or in the night, we provide 3 different settings to help you be more creative.

Before you start

Time lapse is all about “Time Interval” and “Record Time”. These are the 2 main settings are what will determine the speed of our final video.

  • Time Interval (Capture Rate): The longer the interval, the quicker will be the movement of the elements of our shot, and vice versa. *Example: Recording time (in seconds)/capture rate (in seconds) = total frames. (See example below)
  • Frame Rate:  The higher the frame, the quicker will play the video.  Example: total frames/frame rate = video length (See example below)
  • Time Lapse Video Length Calculator (See example below)


In this case, your recording time is 2 hours, which is 7200 seconds, divided by your capture rate, which is 5 seconds, you will get 1440, which is your total frames. Finally, 1440 divided by 20, which is frame rate per second, you will get 72, which is your video length.


Let’s get started
