You're right. we covered avoiding auto in earlier episodes.

In this case it didn't really matter, but I agree that auto could cause problems with certain shoot situations.

These actually were shot Raw, but I batch converted JPEGs in this case.

Great tutorials. However, I am not familiar with Adobe Bridge but let me give you a comment.
I saw from your Adobe Bridge screenshots that you set your white balance to auto on your DSLR, which is a mistake when doing timelapse unless you shot in RAW mode which will give you the opportunity to correct the white balance in post. In your example, you shot in jpeg and AWB, well... this is not really good!
DSLR setting is to be all in manual, manual focus, stab off, and force ISO and AWB to anything is best for the scene except Auto. If you take a photo in jpeg to check your settings and if it's a nice and appealing shot for you, then switching to raw will not give you much more. If you know in advance you will have a tricky situation in term of light during the timelapse, then going to raw can be considered.
Best,
F.
