Short answer. As a dedicated program, Time-Lapse Tool performs better and faster. Time-Lapse tool makes up for its cost in terms of the time it saves you in creating your time-lapse video projects.
Long answer. We decided to create the application because, although Windows Movie-Maker had similar tools, it did not support time-lapse video creation well for more demanding projects. WMM’s tools work, more or less, to create short time-lapse videos from a small number of images, but the program stalls at the image loading stage if you try to make a more extended project with thousands of images. Combining two image sequences with different fps rates is also is not supported by WMM (although it is possible with some non-obvious workarounds, which cause losses to the original image quality). Using our software, you can set up a video project of this kind in literally a few mouse clicks and start exporting the final time-lapse video almost immediately. As additional bonus, we added a few cool effects like Tilt Focus and vignette.
QQA: Yes, it does. Every image sequence uses own fps value. You may just split existing sequence into multiple and adjust fps for each part.
