Chronolapse

Chronolapse (CL) is a tool for creating time lapses on windows using screen captures, webcam captures, or both at the same time. CL also provides some rudimentary tools for annotating your time lapse, as well as creating a picture-in-picture effect with two sets of images. Each piece of CL functionality has been created to work stand-alone to make the program more versatile. For example, you can easily capture with another program and create a PIP in CL, or capture with CL and annotate somewhere else.
