Back in August Instagram, which is now owned by Facebook, launched a new application that makes it quite easy to capture time-lapse videos. The app is called Hyperlapse and users don’t need an account to use it. If you have been wondering how to activate 1080p recording in this application you’re in luck because one YouTube user has been able to locate a hidden menu that gives access to advanced settings.
Instagram’s Hyperlapse allows you to create impressive time-lapse videos in an easy-to-use package. Controls are basic, and settings are minimal, but as noticed by Youtube user hoschdebacha, you can have some fun with a suite of advanced settings hidden with the app.
The options are accessible via a four-finger tap. Just tap the screen four times with four fingers, and a new “Labs” menu will appear on the screen. Within this menu, there are options that allow you to bump up the resolution to 1080P, edit the frame rate, change the video save location, and more.
You can see the menu and a demo of how to find it in the YouTube video below (German).
