String multiple images together to create a video

Hello,

What is the best way to string multiple images together to create a video file?

I have 300 images which I extracted from a short (10 sec) video using Camtasia (v9). After some simple image editing, I now want to recombine the images to create a modified video. However, I cannot determine how to do that in Camtasia or if it is even possible.

I also came across the following site but do not understand the suggestions nor how to use the suggested software:

How can I combine 30,000 images into a timelapse movie?

I'm hopeful that someone knows of a more straightforward solution.

Thanks

Hi Steve,
With 300 images from a 10-second video, that means the frame rate was 30 fps, or 0.033333 (ad infinitum) seconds per frame. If you're willing to live with 0.3 seconds per frame, which will turn your 10-second video into a 9-second one (the difference is probably not noticeable to the naked eye), it is extremely easy to do with Windows Movie Maker. I did a short video for you showing how:

Update 02-10-18: Steve, since the 300 rug images don't represent a "real" video, it's impossible to tell if Movie Maker did a good job creating the video, so I grabbed some footage (30 fps) from a baseball game I attended and saved 300 frames (10 seconds) from it. I then used the same method as with the rugs, but this time we can see that Movie Maker did a fine job making the video from the 300 images:

See  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VirtualDub#Video_assembly  on how to make images into a movie.  Note that'll you have to number them according to VirtualDub's requirements and use the specified graphic format.
