I'm trying to set up a new camera to record a time-lapse video of the new pool construction. What would be a recommended frame interval? I was thinking about 10 - 15 seconds interval would generate and about 2 - 3 minutes video per day. Any thoughts?

I have mine set to take a photo every 5 minutes through the whole project but I haven't checked it lately and since the project is taking longer than anticipated, I hope it is still recording. We did this while building our house and it was really fun to see the final video. :)

We're under construction now and I've been taking them with 1 hour of real time = 1 minute of video. I guess at 30 fps that's a frame every 2 seconds. Works well, although a longer interval would have been fine also.

So I guess I will stick with 15 seconds intervals (4 frames per minute) and then will speed up the video in the editor.

I'm using Synology Surveillance Station with Amcrest camera. Here are the settings.
