How do I make a movie stitching photos together at 0.1 sec interval?
August 1, 2014 1:16 PM   Subscribe

I have 1000s of photos from the past 12 months. I'd like to make a movie out of these with each photo being displayed for 0.1 seconds (or something ridiculously short). How do I do this? iMovie has a min of 1 second and that's too long. Some Mac specific tool that doesn't cost too much (say under $30) would be helpful

If you can't find a program to do this natively, you might try finding a program which will speed up your footage. i.e. build the movie with 1 second increments and then speed up the footage by the factor you need. You probably want the new speed to be such that you try to keep frame boundaries. So 1 second increment is ~24 frames, so I would speed things up by a factor of 12,6,4,3 or 2 so you get an integral number of frames...(of course this depends strongly on how the footage is sped up, but sticking to these multiples is probably safe...)

Get Quicktime 7.

Use File->Open Image Sequence...

Set Frame Rate.

You can do this in YouTube and set the speed to go faster.

Can't help on a Mac but, for the record, I'm a huge fan of DVD-slideshow for doing this on Linux.
