View Full Version : BMP---AVI program?

Jun 7, 2006, 02:13 AM
I had bought a $10 3in1 Digital camera from radioshack. I found drivers for it over the web....so I can upload photos and record videos from QuickTime. My problem is when I take a stand-alone video...the video is actually a sequence of BMP files! I see how the windows program identifies these files as the File Name has a different header the regular photos. (d8_frame#_actualphoto#) What I want to do is wright a cocoa program that converts the sequence of .BMPs into an .AVI video.(uncompressed) I just wanted to know what libraries or "commands" I would need to call. I know basic Cocoa programing but I'm still an amature..... All I really am looking for is info on a "routine" or Library that I need to call to convert the .BMP<>.AVI.(Example Code would be great too!) Yes, I know an .AVI is just a photo sequence contained in one file.

Any Help is apriciated.

Thanks! (ign0r3 my h0ribl speleling):p

Use Quicktime Player (I think you need Quicktime Pro)

File -> Open Image Sequence ...

Set your FPS and off you go.

I have tried that before but I figured it out thanks! I'm still interested in the program as it is a PIA to make the movie in quicktime as you have to drg in every freaking frame one at a time!

If your files are named and numbered sequentially in a single folder, e.g. frame1.bmp, frame2.bmp, etc. you should only have to choose the first one.
