Making videos from sequences of images

There are a few ways to do this:

  1. The one that the EcoViz Technical Team uses is to use the Pro version of QuickTime, which costs about $30.
    1. See: Making QuickTime movies (.mov files) from sequences of images
  2. There are some free packages that do it too:
    1. Windows Live Movie Maker - only works on Vista or Windows 7, but not XP.
      1. Tarsier tutorial: Making a video from .jpg sequence using Live Movie Maker
    2. SUPER Video Converter - supposedly does it, but let us know if you can get it to work!
  3. Get a friend who has QuickTime Pro to do it for you.
    1. For example, if you're in the ENVS 560 class:
      1. In Windows Explorer, open this folder: \\classes.csumb.edu\classes\ENVS\ENVS560-01\campus
      2. Copy the vid folder (containing all your JPEG files) from your RenderView folder to the above folder on the CSUMB classes server.
      3. Ask someone who has QuickTime Pro to convert them for you.
      4. Get them to dump the resulting .mov file back ni the same folder.
        1. Get them to name it something like "_BobsVideo.mov", with an initial underscore ('_') so that it appears at the very top of the folder, which probably has hundreds of JPEG files in it already!
      5. Copy the .mov file back to your machine and play it using the free QuickTime player (or a variety of other players)
