This is Japan! Awesome video created from 2760 photos makes you wanna go to Japan

Eric Testroete stitched together all the photos he took on a recent trip to Japan to create this truly awesome video.

He describes it here in detail: "We never went there with the plan to do this, but one night we were looking at the pictures. We held down the button to get through the pictures faster and we noticed it looked fairly cool. I figured it would be a good idea to make a video this way.

I used Lightroom to crop and process all the images (it's good at doing batch stuff), M├ętamorphose to rename the exported files into a numbered sequence, Sony Vegas to cut to music, then VirtualDub to compress and scale.

The video is running at 6 frames a second. I originally took 3340 pictures, but doing the math there should be about 2760 images in the video. The camera was a Pentax k20d and I brought an external hard drive to save what ended up being 46 gigs in raw files."
