Convert JPGs to video file

tszwang asked
Last Modified: 2010-10-05
I have a serious of snapshots taken from a video camera and they are stored as .jpg files. I need to assemble these .jpg files and make it a video file, any popular format will do, e.g. avi, mpg... I figure that two options are out there:
1. write the code myself. For this option, I would like to know whether there is any existing C/C++/Java/VB library that I can make use of.
2. use some external software. This should be the better approach, but my requirement is that the conversion process has to be automated, that is, it has to be performed via a script or something. I know that I can open up Adobe Premier and do a few mouse clicks to assemble the .jpg, but that
requires human interaction. What I need is batch processing, e.g. I can specify the input .jpg files and other frame information as input arguments to the conversion program, and the output video file can be produced. It might be something like this: "JPG2AVI.exe -input 1.jpg 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg -framerate 30 -output test.avi"  Another possible way is to use automation.
My question is, is there such a program available (either support batch processing or automation)?

Any help for this is highly appreciated. Thanks.
