Time-Lapse with a webcam

I found a simple and inexpensive way to shoot HD time-lapse video using a webcam, a netbook, and a software product called HandiAVI (www.azcendant.com). You can see an example at

You can see another example of this technique at

 which I shot during our passage through the Panama Canal.
