Greetings, Here is what I want to do: 1) I have video clips (*.avi or *.wmv or *.mov or whatever) that are about 2 sec long 2) I need to analyze the video frame by frame (frames could be every 0.1 sec) 3) The analysis is segementation to find the area of a portion of the frame. The geometry is the same from frame to frame except that the area I need to calculate shrinks from frame to frame. Questions: 1) can I "Import" a video clip into Mathematica ? (doc says *.gif but I cant find anything else) 2) if so, how can I break the video into frames ? 2) if not possible, do you know of any program that could save a video clip as frames (I would like to specify the time frame) ? Thanks, Robert Robert Pigeon TZ = -5
