But what if I want 30 second exposures from dark to light transitions, things like that (is setting the ISO to auto and Shutter priority the only way?).

My method is take the batch of CR3 files and put them into LR and do some batch processing to output the JPG's. I then open Photoshop and import one image clicking on sequence, then render the video with photoshop. I add music with iMovie on my
