The page describes some elementary making and processing videos on Linux and MS Windows using free software only. It describes how to make movie from sequence of images how to extract images from videos, change parameters, cut some parts out and others.
Few hints for processing in Matlab programming environment are also provided. The Matlab is a commercial very powerful SW and it runs on many operating systems.
It is assumed that necessary codecs are installed on the system.

Command line that works fine for me:
mencoder mf://\*.jpg -mf

You can use VirtualDub.

undertands bmp and RGB tga files. Then, set the preferred compression
and save as avi file.
Very simple. You can download my

You can use the function
aviread for reading AVI file or
even just specified frames from it. You can then do with separate
images whatever you want and store them back into avi (see the text
Avidemux can do many operations as the famous VirtualDub. The
can also do many things. Example of
joining two avi-files:
cat 1.avi 2.avi | mencoder -noidx
-ovc copy -oac copy -o output.avi -
The VirtualDub fulfils almost all your needs.
You can do almost everything here.
