    Default Merge thousands of images into a video clip...

    Hi All,

    I have around 22,000 small jpeg images (motion detection images taken over a period of time). Can anyone suggest an application to merge all these images into a video clip?

    Cheers

    Are they numbered numerically? Or in order?

    I'm assuming one pic per frame?

    Most video editing suites allow this.

    Me being a simpleton use VirtualDub

    Yep, all images are named as date/time etc.
    I have PowerDirector 8 but this can only support up to 2,500 images....

    I have successfully used the free graphic viewing program XnView to convert 3000 JPG images to a single EXE slideshow with perfect results. You can also create screensaver or video output.

    If you don't mind a bit of command-line bashing, pretty sure FFmpeg will do that (probably all in one line). An example from their docs:

    ffmpeg -f image2 -i foo-%03d.jpeg -r 12 -s WxH foo.avi

    Where WxH is the output resolution

    Or buy a dvd or whatever that supports them. Then all you need, is a USB flash drive

    Just tried ffmpeg with ~18000 files (created by extracting each frame of a short video to JPEG's) & worked OK. Mind you, you may have to tweak the quality settings to get an output that does the originals justice.

    Not sure what's used here, but here's 4000.

    Failing all else, why not make multiple clips and then merge them once they're videos? Wouldn't that be the simplest option?

    Making clips and merging them would be a lot of transcoding. Kinda lossy esp as many security cams are not exactly HQ
