Down Times

Wednesday Evenings are virus scan so off all night.
If you see color bars I am doing something that requires shutting down.

Making a Time Lapse Movie

These images can be used to make a movie with Windows XP "Microsoft Movie Maker" (MMM).  This program in under the accessories folder in WIN XP.
In the Tools menu select Options and under the Advanced tab set the picture duration to 0.25 seconds (you can change it if after watching your movie you want it to go faster or slower).
Down load the above images by mousing over a number and "save target as" and put them someplace where you can find them.
In the MMM File menu select Import into Collections, or in the Movie Tasks box select Import Pictures -and- select all the photos you want in the movie.
These should show up in the Collection box in MMM.  Now click on any one photo and then press <CTRL><A> i.e. select All of the images.  Now use the mouse to grab them and drag into the Video Timeline.  Wait for the cursor to change from an hour glass back to the pointer.  You can play the movie by clicking the Forward arrow (Play button) under the preview screen, or click on the small arrow just above the slider on the preview screen to see the movie expanded to fit your computer screen.
