Well, my question is this: Is that possible to make time-lapse movies with Mathematica?
Here is some more explanation:
Watch this YouTube video that is a wonderful example of time-lapse movies. Time-laps movies are made by taking a photo every few seconds and attaching the photos together to make a movie which is played at say 30 fps. I have taken 180 JPEG photos with my digital camera. I wonder if I can use Mathematica to convert them into a 6 sec movie. Normally, this should be an easy job using the following two lines of code:
frames = Import /@ FileNames["*.JPG", "/path/to/folder/"]; Export["/path/to/folder/export.avi", frames]
But, because the total size of the images is too large (~1.2GB), I get the following error:
No more memory available. Mathematica kernel has shut down. Try quitting other applications and then retry.
I get this error when loading the pictures, so the export process has not yet began.
Is there any easy way to fix this issue? e.g., loading only a few pictures at a time.
