I have a series of photographs that I would like to combine into a slideshow video (a low-resolution slideshow video), in the .mov, .mpg, .avi, or similar format. I would also like to be able to specify the frame rate; since the photographs are different and not in sequence, I will not be using 30 or 24 fps; likely, I will choose something like 3 or 5 fps. I need a video file format, so PowerPoint or Picasa will not work.
Unfortunately, I am running Windows, so I don't have access to iMovie or iPhoto or any other software on the Mac platform.
I have also tried Windows MovieMaker, but it seems tedious to import 1000 images by hand and drag them individually to the "filmstrip sequencer" in the GUI.
Do you have any suggestions?
By the way, my input does not necessarily have to be .jpg; it could be .gif, in case that is helpful.
