Using Stellarium to make an animation / video
(I don’t have a solution yet.)
I just wanted to show what the sky looks like over the course of a week.
On a Mac with Stellarium installed, I ran the following
/Applications/Stellarium.app/Contents/MacOS/stellarium --startup-script stellarium.ssc
with the following
It took a while (some 10–15 minutes) and created those 336 images in
~/Pictures/Stellarium/uj*, occupying a total size of about 550 MB. This seems a start, but Imagemagick etc. seem to choke on creating a GIF from such large data.
Giving up for now; would like to come back in future and figure out something better, that results in a smaller GIF.
