I have a network camera taking regular snapshots of building work we have going on, I have my pictures but just wondered what software you use to put them altogether into a single film. I've tried windows movie maker with what I have so far, but there's just too many images for it to process and seems to fall over:(
.... I'm also interested since I'm doing the same thing.
Last time I tried this type of thing was with one of those snowmen that grew when you added water. I made an animated gif out of it but it was HUGE!!.
There is a program called MonkeyJam that can take a folder of pictures and turn it into a film. We use it for animation club (kids take lots of random photos and then Monkeyjam stiches them all together) but sounds like it could do this too.
ImageMagicks 'convert' tool works pretty well for these sort of 'batch' jobs. It grew up on Linux but I believe there are win32 ports around.
try the 6o day trial of premiere pro cs3
its not that expensive to buy either, and is bloody excellent.
on the free tack why not try avedit or blender
