This can add a cinematic quality to finished videos, but traditional hyperlapses can be time-consuming and complex to make. Instagram’s implementation, announced Tuesday, focuses on ease of use. There is no login required to use the Hyperlapse app. When it launches, you are presented with the video camera.
