Movie clips to Mathematica

	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
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.


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) ?
