'mplayer [some video source like a file] -z 9 -vo png' Converts to PNG...
Its a simple java program to take the frames from mplayer and convert them into a single FilmStrip PNG file. You can then take this file and convert it to BMP if you'd like.
SYNTAX: java FilmStrip [FRAMES DIRECTORY] [WIDTH] [HEIGHT] [OUTPUT FILE] ('show')
NOTES: [OUTPUT FILE] is always a png file, so name it correctly.
[FRAMES DIRECTORY] is a folder with PNG files named 0.png to X.png
[WIDTH] and [HEIGHT] are the width and height of one frame.
('show') should only be used on a small number of frames. Final
Image is displayed in a JFrame (non-scrolling)
SAMPLE: java FilmStrip ~/Desktop/FilmStrip/frames 640 480 filmstrip.png
