Is there any way to write an application that takes an AVI file and saves each frame as a picture file ?  I presume that it can only be stored as a BMP.  If this is the case how can I convert that BMP to a Jpeg ?

I would be grateful for all advice offered regarding this.

Thanks in advance

John

Hello

  To convert bmp to jpg

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Jpg : TJpegImage;
  Bmp : TBitmap;
begin
  try
    Bmp := TBitmap.Create;
    Bmp.LoadFromFile('c:\bmp.bmp');
    Jpg := TjpegImage.Create;
    Jpg.Assign(Bmp);
    Jpg.SaveToFile('c:\jpg.jpg');
  finally
    Bmp.free;
    Jpg.Free;
  end;
end;

Check out the abilities of the TAnimate component on the Win32 tab. It works fine with AVI's and tells you the number of frames in it. You can seek for frames and you can select a certain frame with it. Then copy the canvas to the canvas of a TJPegImage component and save it as a JPeG. Done. (I guess...)
