Can You Figure Out the Secret Technique Used in this Timelapse?

Ordinarily if there’s movement in a timelapse video, it’s constrained to a small area because a dolly or crane system was used to change the position of the camera small distances between shots. The folks at T-RECS came up with a special way to introduce large distance movements into timelapse shots, but are keeping mum on how they did it. Check out the showreel above and see if you can figure out their secret technique.

    I like this theory the most. My guess was just a bunch of cameras doing a pano, but the subtle 3D effect kept coming back into my mind.

    Walklapse, simple as that ;-).

    Two years ago I make some experiment with that technique, in the end of this video you can see something similar:

    I also believe it was with a Unicorn. Possibly an adolescent to create a lower perspective.

    Not difficult. Here is our sample:

    My take? I can use an iPhone app, or a HeroHD. Clamp it to my car, or a trike (bike) an extremely slowly drive around specific roads surrounding a landmarks as the camera is recording the pictures. I’m gonna try to prove this theory, I don’t see why that wouldn’t work,
