Capturing Batches of Frames Automatically
on Jan 14, 2003 at 4:48:19 pm

Hi,
I'm trying to fain a software packeage that will let me capture one every fifth frame from a video loaded from a mini dv camera to a computer. I have equipment for capturing the vidoe or capturing single frames, but I need to capture 1 frame every 5/30 sec. Is there a software package that will do this?
Thanks,
Grant

Do you have a video editing tool that supports changing the speed of a video clip? If my math is correct you are seeking to speed up your video by a factor of 5x, or 500%. Try using 500% as the new speed of the clip, as the logical approach for the tool would be to grab every fifth frame to get that new speed. If the tool requires a time duration then divide the time length of the clip by 5 and enter that as the new duration.
