Timelapse Calculator was designed to help one decide the appropriate interval settings for timelapse applications. The unique thing about Timelapse Calculator compared to others you might find online is it's user specified dynamic interface.
This allows one to input the data that they already know, for example, the actual time you wish to allocate to shoot the timelapse sequence. Then the Timelapse Calculator does the rest of the thinking (or suggesting) for you. This allows for quick intuitive calculations so you can get the shots you want before the scenery changes and the moment passes.

To use Timelapse Calculator, you can follow the official PyQt reference guide or you can do what I did and simply download The PyQt Windows Binary installer from here. At the time of this post, Timelapse Calculator has been tested with PyQt4.7.3 running under a Windows 32bit Install of Python 2.6.5
PyQt is a cross platform API so provided you have both python and PyQt installed on your Windows, Mac or Linux machine, you should be able to just grab the source code and run it natively on your system. I welcome anyone with a Mac or Linux OS to try it out and report your findings here on openmoco.org
Once you have Python and PyQt installed and working, Simply download the Timelapse Calculator Source make sure the two files live in the same directory and run the TLC_Calculator.py
Here is a Video of how it looks on Windows 7.
