You can automatically create timelapses of your work by using the screencast feature in the SFM under the help menu. This will automatically save a .png file inside the screencast folder every time you release the mouse or a hotkey. you can use any encoder you like to make a movie from the image sequence.
we tend to use ffmpeg which can be found at http://winff.org/
here's a snapshot of our settings, but you can customize however you want.
