    Free Video Manipulation Program?

    I did some Googling, but wouldn't turn up anything. What I'm looking for is a *free* video manipulation program. Something that will let me edit a video frame by frame, ect. Something like a Photoshop for videos. Any help would be appreciated!

    Check out The GIMP, I know it's an image manipulation program, but there's a plugin for it called GAP (GIMP Animation Package) that allows frame by frame manipulation. I know you can export to avi, etc, but I'm not sure if you can import standard video files. Here's a link to a tut for it that might give you more info, but apart from this, I was struggling to find any decent info:

    http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Advanced_Animations/

    [edit] I actually searched for it on their plugin directory and found a plugin that can extract frames from common video formats, but the plugin looks kinda like you'd need a unix based os to run...not sure if that's a problem for you. The GIMP itself is ported to windows, anyhow. [/edit]

    Yeah, I run just Windows at the moment. Thanks for trying, though!

    Check it out anyway, cause the GIMP runs on windows and I'm almost certain GAP does as well, so give it a try. I'm just not sure if GAP comes with the ability to extract frames from video files. Check out www.gimp.org anyhow.

    Irfanview (www.irfanview.com) has a feature that will extract frames from a video clip. I'm not sure if it is a plugin or part of the software itself, but it seems to work pretty well. You'd just need some software to re-compile it after you've done your edits.

    You rock Egaladeist!
    You must spread your AntiPoints around before giving it to Egaladeist again.
