Make a video appear like a time lapse?

Good Evening all,

I have been trying to find a way to make a normal video appear like a time lapse video in premiere pro cs6, I have been searching for a while now and although I can find other forum topics where someone is asking a similar question the responders have either misunderstood or have been unable to help.

Let me start by explaining what I am trying to achieve. I took a long car journey with my GoPro mounted on the dash, knowing that I would not have enough memory on the device to be able to record the whole journey I decided to timelapse it. I took a photo every 10 seconds, and imported these in to premiere pro as a timelapse showing ~8 frames per second (each frame would exist for approx. 3 frames in final render at 29.97fps) . I am happy with how this looks, however on the last leg of the journey I switched my GoPro to film as I wanted to capture some video of the area for use in another edit I am doing. Now to complete my journey time lapse edit I want to capture a frame every ten seconds of the footage and play it back at the rate of ~8 frames per second so I get the same look and feel as the rest of the time lapse.

I have been playing around with the posterize time effect and then speeding this footage back up, this does create a time lapse type look but it is not the exact one. I was wondering if someone knew a way of doing this, or could let me know if I am missing a simple trick here.

Thank you for your replies in advance.
