the basic way is to simply speed up the duration of the video clip (like fast forward)...

It very easy to record time lapse with the PC109, im at work at the moment and cant remember the exact menu settings. However it is possible to set the camera to take as little as 1 second of video every 30 seconds. I have some footage I shot at this speed and I will post later when im back at home..

I left the camera on a tripod pointing out of a hotel window over night, and captured the sunrise. When played back at normal speed then the sunrise takes about 25 seconds.

This will will create a much smoother image then just increasing the playback speed of you footage.

Look for Interval Rec. in the PC 109 manual
page 78-79

This is using the interval record function on my PC109. Nothing special, just my mom's backyard to see what it looks like time lapse. It's from from 5pm to 8pm, about 6 minutes per second. I used the shortest record and interval times and then sped up the video to attempt to hide the jerkiness.
