How to make time stacks?


Recommended Posts

I'm interested in creating time stacks and I've found a how to video for Photoshop, but I don't know how to take the advice from that video and transition it over to Paint.NET.

 

The basic thing in Photoshop is this: you want to take multiple photos, add them all as different layers, then change the blend mode to "Light". I'm not sure which blend mode in Paint.NET is equivalent to the light blend mode in Photoshop. In the description of the video, the photographer says he is using the same technique as you would for star trails.

 

Here is the tutorial video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAmYx-VN2w8

 

And here is a video showing what time stacks look like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcQNQipYiMU&list=UU3tDMDSIVQ3RNASqnpX-IAw

 

 

Thanks a bunch!

If you look and listen very closely (and turn up the volume too much), he actually uses "lighten" as the blend mode, which is built into paint.net

If, in the future, you find a tutorial using a blend mode that isn't included in paint.net, here's a plugin that could help.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Many thanks @Noob - I didn't know about this plugin and now I do
