Christopher,
what is excactly that you want to achive?
If you just want a time lapse , let's say of a city that frturns from night into day, then all u have to do is let your camera shoot about half houlr from dawn to sunset.
And then u load the material and run it in the post.

If you have a video camera that has an Interval Timer, like the XL2 for example, you can shoot intervals from 30 sec., 1 min., 5 min., and 10 minutes with a recording time of .5 sec., 1 sec., 1.5 sec., and 2 seconds.

The one time I played with this, the results were not at all "smooth" insofar as the motion was concerned. Some have suggested it requires additional tweaking in post.
