comment Creating time-lapse movies with Mathematica
Surely that's useful. As I mentioned in my comment below the question, if the camera shakes, you need a shake reduction algorithm too. This was not the case for me. I used a fixed tripod to take the shots. My other concern was performance, but I can say I am quite happy with the performance of your library. I don't have any other program for comparison but I think because your library is just a wrapper for windows API (written in C/C++ and tuned for performance) it's pretty fast.

Thanks Simon. I used the precompiled DLL and it solved the issue.

comment Creating time-lapse movies with Mathematica
@Szabolcs: The reason I want to use Mathematica is that I failed to use free tools such as ffmpeg and avconv. I thought there might be a simple way to use Mathematica to get the job done since my project is relativly small. Anyways, I agree with you that Mathematica is not the best tool. Aside from the speed and memory issues, sophisticated time-lapse software does a lot of interframe processing for shake reduction and exposure compensation to improve the output video.

Do you have any idea how to fix it?

Thanks Simon for the answer. I have VS 2013 installed, but I get the following error: CreateLibrary::cmperr: "Compile error: "C:\\ Program Files (x86)\\ Windows Kits \\ 8.0\\ include \\ um \\ propvarutil.h(20) : fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'shlwapi.h': No such file or directory"

comment Variable scope similar to other languages
@Szabolcs: Just like the other languages that I mentioned, if a variable/function is not defined in the local scope, the global version is used. If it is defined both locally and globally, the local version is used.

comment Variable scope similar to other languages
@Kuba: 'locally' means in the local scope. I updated the question and added a new variable. I hope it is clear now. Actually, I want to define all the variables in the local scope and only share the ones which are specified in the list (the first parameter of Scope) with the global scope.
