Hi 

 

I want to know how we can create a Long Exposure effect in videos.

I saw several videos in movies, but not able to produce those.

some articles saying its possible with Adobe after effects or time lapse video created by series of photos.

Is it not possible directly with video?

Please answer to my questions

Thanks in advance

Some video cameras allow you to shoot exposure times of less than a second. I suspect for even longer exposures using the still mode in a DSLR would be the way to go and import them as a series of images.

I think Brian means "greater than a second." I suppose you could just shoot hours of video then compress it (only use every 10,000th frame) or something. But a camera with an intervalometer is your best bet.

Do you mean long exposure or timelapse? You've just been given two conflicting answers.

I mean an exposure time on each frame of greater than a second. Of course, you also have to decide how often you take each frame, so there could be an element of time lapse.
