Compile all jpegs into 1 video by alphabetical order @ 50 fps

mencoder mf://*.jpg -mf fps=50:type=jpg -ovc raw -oac copy -o out50fps.avi
Most of the commands require the jpegs a certain format, not this, it just follows alphabetical order. The same order you follow if you do "ls -lisah" from top to bottom, top frame is first, bottom is last... This goes perfectly with a webcam timelapse... I have just the script for it: http://www.kossboss.com/linux---app-script---timelapse---capush

  • Sometimes you have to browse your way through a lot of sub-directories. This command cd to the next sub-directory in alphabetical order. For example, if you have the directories "lectures/01-intro", "lectures/02-basic", "lectures/03-advanced" and so on, and your PWD is "02-basic", it jumps to "03-advanced".

  • the last person who posted used the most roundabout way to concatinate files, there's a reason there's a "conCATinate" command... Using this method, you also get to choose the order of the files, below another person just did *.txt > combined.txt which is fine but the order depends on the implementation of "cat" which is probably alphabetical order of filenames.

    -4
    cat file1 ... fileN > combinedFile;
