Utility for Assembling JPG Images Into Video



rtJPG2Video is a free Windows command line utility that easily converts multiple directories full of JPG images into high-quality video. For each directory that contains images, a movie is created. The movie is saved in the same directory that contains the images it was created from.

You can also add a custom subtitle to each movie. The subtitle can contain special tokens that are expanded into date information for each specific movie.

I specifically wrote this utility for people who are joining multiple sets of JPG files together to create timelapse movies.

Complete documentation is available by clicking the "Documentation" link in the menubar. Feature suggestions are welcome.

This utility was written entirely in PowerBASIC.
