Get A Pro License for Microsoft Hyperlapse for Free And Say Goodbye To Long Videos

Nobody would like to watch an hour of video on mobile recording a bicycle ride or a family stroll in the park, but the footage can be enjoyable to share with your friends and family if it is turned into a few seconds or a few minutes of timelapse video.

A timelapse video tends to be shaky and uneven when you use a smartphone to record while walking, running or biking, but with help of a smart technology known as Microsoft Hyperlapse, you will be able to create smooth and stabilized timelapses from first-person videos.

Using this technology, Microsoft has offered a mobile app Hyperlapse Mobile for Windows Mobile and Android users and a desktop app Hyperlapse Pro for Windows and Mac OS users to create excellent timelapse videos.

The desktop app is a trial copy with complete features but, same as in the mobile version, it adds a watermark which is an end credit to the timelapse videos. To disable this watermark, you will need a license to activate the desktop version.

Hurry up, while Microsoft is sorting out unforeseen challenges acquiring a license key from the Microsoft Store, you can get a free license key for Hyperlapse Pro. Simply use the “Submit a request” feature at the top of the page here to contact Microsoft and they will provide you with a free license key while it is still available.  Read More
