Need every nth frame of a video?

One of the questions that came up in yesterday's class was how to get every nth frame of a video. Why would you want to do that? Multiplexed video. If you only want one camera view and that view shows up in the video stream on a regular interval, you should be able to say to your software ... "give me every nth frame."

So, how do you do it? It turns out that Amped Five does it really well.

Once you load the range selector, just input the interval.

It's really that easy.

This handy feature is one of the reasons that I am liking Amped Five more and more.

Virtualdub does this as well for free, simply use "decimate by" in the frame rate options.

You are quite right, and thanks for visiting the blog.

Jimmy S. pointed this out in the class as well.

One thing in A5's favour - I was doing it on a Mac. :)
