Using AVIFil32.dll to code AVI file creation from bitmaps

Posted on 2001-08-07

Last Modified: 2008-01-16
I have IPictureDisp (or StdPicture) objects in memory (or on disk) that I want to create AVI file from.

The pictures are named with a constant prefix and a 6 digit number (leading zeros) showing the bitmap's order in the series (always starting from xx000000.bmp)

I know the AVIFil32.dll is used to do this stuff, but I don't have enough knowledge of the HOW part.

A lot of points (much more than currently) are promised to the one that will supply understandable code exmaples of the "how" and fast.
Also linkes to places where such exist will be OK.

You could have a look here..

First convert your BMP's to an AVI file like

Then ...

sorry, no can do.

I have explicitly asked for source code and examples, NOT CONVERTING APPLICATIONS!!! I know where to get applications to convert from bitmaps to AVI!!!

the code exmaples at shrinkwrapvb.com are almost understandable, and I have also reached there myself yesterday, only they are quite too specific.

What I am looking for is the "how do each of these function work and how do I make it do it correctly?"

OK,

Which bits don't you understand ? Do you want to write something like this youself, does the code at shrinkwrapvb.com not work correctly ?

Cheers,

a. I do want to write something like the application you sent me a link to, only I need all the code behind, since I need to plug-in the functionality to an existing application.

b. The code at shrinkwrapvb.com does what it does correctly, but it does not explain how do I use these functions in any other way than the one they give.

c. If you have some code that is also commented and that explains what exactly do these functions inside the DLL do, or you have some of your own explanation that can help me write my program, please do write them down here, otherwise please leave me alone. I know how to search the internet, and I have also been practicing VB for the last 4 years, so if I ask a question and give it 200 points plus a remark that I am willing to raise to a much higher amount, this means I am not looking for a ready-made application, neither do I need someone to search www.google.com and send the first 3 results to here.

a. Explain yourself better next time particularly if you say ..

'the code examples at shrinkwrapvb.com are almost understandable, and I have also reached there myself
yesterday, only they are quite too specific'

Perhaps I misunderstood 'almost understandable'

b. Best of luck, I'm really happy that you know how to search the internet.

c. Perhaps the question should be how does the AVIFil32.dll precisely work.

So much for being helpful..... well at least trying to be .. what I posted were comments which you are free to ignore as you have done ... if I posted any of them as Answers then I would expect that kind of response from you.

Unsubscribing from this Question Now ..... Annoyed....
