JPEG Video?

I've got a whole mess of frames in JPEG format.  They are all numbered numerically.  I'd like to take these files and create a video out of them in a format that most people can view (avi, mov, mpg).  I've read about M-JPGs, but that's not really a common file format (no sound of course).  I can program.  Is there an OLE automation type program that can use to take these jpegs and make a video file?  Any ideas?

no need to break out those programing skills yet! :-)
it's already been done for you.  You've got a couple of options.  Unfortunatley for you, i only know the mac side of things, but if you have a mac handy, jpgs and movs are crossplatform so you shouldn't have to worry about conversion.  Besides, i'm sure there are equivilent programs on the PC side to the ones i'm going to suggest.

First, b/c it's easist and cheapest (free!), download GraphicConverter

<a href="http://hotfiles.zdnet.com/cgi-bin/texis/swlib/mac/infomac.html?fcode=MC10312">http://hotfiles.zdnet.com/cgi-bin/texis/swlib/mac/infomac.html?fcode=MC10312</a>

which earned a coveted 5 mouse rating.  w/ graphic converter the possiblities are endless.  I also have a lot of jpg files and in the time it took me to get a glass of ice tea (or less, it was done by the time i got back!) it had converted 20 jpgs into a quicktime movie, one of the formats you mentioned.

possiblity 2.  cost $30.  get ahold of a copy of QuicktimePro and MoviePlayer can make a movie for you as well.  personally though... i like graphicconverter better.

possiblity 3.  Any commercial video editing software could do it.

#4.  OK, OK... i guess i have to give in... try out this PC program. a review, description, and download is available at the link.  i don't know how good it is b/c i do use a mac, but it sounds like your exact wish.

Fast Movie Processor.

#5. what about an animated gif?  plenty of utilities for that out there!  on the PC side you could user GIF Animator 3.0

Excellent Answer!

Fast Movie Processor is my best bet here.

I like Macs.  They are powerful, reliable, dependable, fast, affordable and all around great machines.  As long as I don't have to use one.  I'm just to acustom to my Microsoft environment.  I can't even do word processing on a Mac with out getting mad that the keys don't do what I'm acustom to.  I can't get used to XWindows either.  I haven't tried OS/2, but I'm sure the same is true.

Thanx,
Elmer
