Flippin Sweet Family Blog

Back in April we took a family trip to Monterey Bay, California.  The day before we left we came up with a wacky idea to make a time lapse.  $4 on a iPhone app, 2 rubber bands holding my phone to the rear view mirror, 6 months of sitting around and now something to show for it.   It took 1200+ images, over 10 hours of driving ( 2 gas stops if you look close ), all down to 2 minutes of video.

For the nerds:

1.  make list of jpg files : ls -1tr > files.txt

2.  encode it : mencoder -nosound -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o yourfile.avi -mf type=jpeg:fps=10 mf://@files.txt

Need ffmpeg and mencoder out of the debian or ubuntu repository
