Alternatives to Hyperlapse? RRS feed

  • Question

  • As I have just found out and having confirmed it with the Microsoft Help Desk, Hyperlapse Pro is not available to buy outside of the United States and from what the helpful help desk lady seemed to imply, it may never be! Why on earth would Microsoft globally release an evaluation copy of software that can't be purchased???

    Anyway, since I'm left with a formerly good, but now useless, piece of software and a pile of watermarked videos, can someone please suggest a good alternative to Hyperlapse that can be obtained by all of us outside of the US please...

  • Are you 100% sure about this?

    I found 'VirtualDub' the other day. It's very technical but you maybe able to get something with the deshaker plugin

  • Apparently Microsoft are working on this, please see their reply to this link:


    I hope they make it available soon, as you said, why make it available worldwide and then say 'sorry you can't buy it'? It's not often that I'm impressed by MS software but this fits the bill perfectly for me. Now like you I'm stuck with watermarked videos, halfway through a project.

  • Microsoft Hyperlapse Pro is now available for purchase in most countries world-wide.

  • No Jeffrey, it is not available for example in New Zealand.  So what countries would be most of the world? It is rather disappointing that in 2017 I still get the same answer from MS that I got in 2015.  We are working on it.  Yeah right.

  • Wondershare Filmora seems to be doing a reasonable job.  But still not what can be doen by the Microsoft product.  It seems to me that if they are hogging the product then it is about time we simply write our own and stuff them.

  • Adobe Pro CC has a stabiliser as well.  You can also use VDUB (free, and use the deshaker plug-in).

  • Also check out new products from Muvee

    The reality is that they have a product that is not much more expensive and it does not crash as often as the MS product does.  

    So there, many alternatives.  Pity about those poor people at Microsoft working on a product that they will not make available to consumers outside of the US and the 'rest of the world' (wherever that is).

  • Hi Jeffrey, please may you tell me where I can purchase Hyperlapse Pro in the UK. It was available last week but now appears to have been removed from the UK website?

  • Billy,

    There seems to be an issue with the link to the purchase sites.  I'm looking into the matter and hope to have it resolved shortly.

    Thanks for your patience,

  • Hyperlapse Pro is leap and bounds better over similar products I've tried and I for one would be happy to pay for it despite no new developments in over a year now.

    Still, I just find it strange that MS are making it so difficult to buy. Forums say it was available to in home country (NZ) but chatting with MS sales rep, not only could not find but was not able to help me purchase from US site despite having Paypal account with US address. Go figure.
