Hello,

read here to be able to understand the previous episodes :

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/MS_DOS/Q_26789497.html

I'm trying to export a list of images from a video,from a starting frame number to an ending frame number. In the screenshot I wanted to start exporting images from br7429.jpg to br7478.jpg. I haven't understood how to do it with VirtualDub. Do you know a way to do it ? If this is not possible,I would like to use VirtualDUB to export images from br0.jpg to br (ending number).jpg and then a batch script to rename all the pictures from br0.jpg / br (ending number).jpg to br7429.jpg to br7478.jpg (in this specific situation).

I've just taken a a look at VirtualDub.

You will have to take the second option.  If you change the Minimum number of digits you will get the numbering starting from 0 and going up to your ending number.

You will then need one of the scripting wizards to make you a batch file to do the converting to the number range you want.

However it might be better for the scripting wizards to leave the Minimum number of digits at 4 so you will end up with the first file as br0000.jpg but the name lengths will be consistent for easy manipulation.

Give this a try, I think it's what you are after.  Notice the REN has ECHO before it right now, for debugging.  It will just echo the REN command that would be executed.  See if this gives the results you need, and if so remove the ECHO.

@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
call :Offset 100 1000
exit /b

:Offset [ending-current-number] [offset-amount]
  for /L %%A in (%~1, -1, 0) do (
    set /A NewNum=%%A + %~2
    echo ren "br%%A.jpg" "br!NewNum!.jpg"
  )
  exit /b

Really I haven't tried your code,but I know what it may works without problems. Here I was using an old tecnique to make an animation,now I'm trying to use more sophisticated tecniques.
