Re: XZ-1 timelapse project (Help me !)

I downloaded an open source software named jpegtoavi. And I just use command line to generate a mjpg movie.

jpegtoavi -f 30 640 480 *.jpg > video.mjpg

This is done on a Mac with the Xcode pack. Obviously it should work on Linux as well. Mind you, I think the project has been abandoned as the "-f" flag does not really work. And on top of that, the mjpg file can only be viewed in VLC. But VLC can convert it to other format, like mp4.

I don't mean to suggest that the above gives you good result but just saying you can automate the process easily using very basic software (not counting the compiler!)
