Thought I would make up some timelapse movies using my webcam. There is probably a mighty fine gui for doing this but nothing beats the command line for geek points.
First capture your images, I just wrote a script that ran vgrabbj every 10 seconds ( I could not get the daemon mode to work!) then ran the following command to create a movie from that one.
find . -iname "*.jpg" |sort |transcode -i /dev/stdin
--use_rgb -g 640x480 -x imlist,null -k -z -y ffmpeg -F h264 -o
How it works:
The find and sort command create a list of filenames that are piped to transcode.
Quite simple really!
My first attempt I have put up on youtube, might need to tweak some values to make it run at a nicer speed and not be so blocky!Listen to this podcast
