    This will rename all the JPG to jpg.
    Code:
    rename 's/\.JPG/.jpg/' *.JPG
    EDIT: someone beat me to it.

    Re: Create Video from JPEGs

    You can also consider using blender to create the video. That way, you can manipulate the pictures in some cool ways and make something more than a flat slide show. Here's one I made with some photographs modified with gimp and blender: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI35Gk2rmps

    Man, you guys are good!
    I found this while googling: "rename -v 's/\.JPG$/\.jpg/' *.JPG"
    and I believe it is the same as what you all are saying!

    It worked and all of the images in the out folder are "pink" with the ls command
    and they are all small (.jpg) vs. caps (.JPG!

    Thanks a lot! I am learning a lot too! I love this stuff!!!

    And I did not mean anything bad by saying "Man" and "guys" above! This is just a habit and I do not mean
    to diminish the intelligence of any females out there! I know there are super smart females out there and plenty of them!

    Thanks a lot! I know it will work now and I can make that DVD of my grandson's 1st year of life!
    It's going to be sweet!

    Too bad everyone in the world aren't as helpful as the people in this forum!
    Thanks again! And I will let you know when this video is made. I have put MP3 with movies before, so I should be able to handle that!

    That is a super nice video!!! I will look into that, but right now my mind "hurts" from all of the thinking! LOL
    Linux is definitely where you learn something every day!
    One who thinks they know everything there is to know, would have to be either a genius or a fool!
    Thanks!!!

    Re: Create Video from JPEGs

    Well I have a video that displays the 153 pictures for 2 seconds each and it looks good!

    Thatguruguy, is there much of a learning curve with blender? It looks pretty intimidating as I installed it and started it up.
    But, most things are at first. I really do like your video!

    And in my previous post I meant no offense as I realize there are probably quite a lot of people on here that can figure out
    anything! I would venture to say that there quite a lot of geniuses using Linux too.

    Thanks for everyone's help! I certainly do appreciate it!

    Re: Create Video from JPEGs

    There is a learning curve involved in learning to use Blender. However, they maintain a lot of tutorials (see http://www.blender.org/education-help/), there's a pretty good forum for the users of Blender (http://blenderartists.org/forum/) and there are a ton of how-to videos on youtube. It's worth playing around with.

    Thank you so much. This command (with different frame rates) worked a treat:

    mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=10 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4

    Thanks again for posting something that works

    I have seen examples of Mencoder being able to do this.

    I tried this command with 25 FPS:
    mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=25 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4
    But, the output went way too fast. It lasted like 1 second!).

    Then I tried this one with 1 FPS:
    mencoder "mf://*.jpg" -mf fps=1 -o output.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4
    But, it only showed 3 pictures (I think) and was only 3 seconds long.

    Is there any knowledgeable mencoder users out there that can tell me how to modify the
    above command to make it read the entire 153 pics and display them for a reasonable amount of time?
    The pictures are not all exactly the same size and I was hoping this would not matter.
    Right now it seems I just have a FPS and a time length issue.

    Thanks in advance!

    Glad you could benefit from it. I got that to work and made a movie DVD of my grandson with pictures.
    But, it's been so long ago I don't remember much about it.
