(This probably goes in the post production area, but I figured I'd put it here since there have been no posts there for two years)

Hello all!

Time for me to finally get up and stop lurking. I have a question: how do you compile the animation output of mandelbulber into a coherent video format? I've tried using stop-motion software, but trying to import multiple thousands of pictures at once just seems to overload it, when it starts showing 2.5Gb of ram in use and climbing 2 hrs later. Is there a better way? I am running on a mac if that makes any difference.

Also great program, keep up the good work!

I'm afraid this might make a difference. Normally i'd recommend VirtualDub (http://www.virtualdub.org/index.html), but this is dedicated win software afaik. So if you don't run Parallels or something similar, this won't help. VirtualDub imports numbered image sequences at once...

I do run bootcamp, but I'd rather not be moving multiple GB of data around between partitions if I could help it. I don't think you can just drag and drop files from osx to a bootcamp drive, so I'd need to find some external storage device to move them through, and all that copying back and fourth takes time.

Upgrading your quicktime to pro will enable compiling image sequences on a mac.

There are other paid options too, but most are much more expensive and offer a bunch of added features.

Hope it helps   afro

Aha! I found a solution!

the applescript in post #4 in this thread works for me. Although nominally it should be able to handle 1000 frames at a time, it throws an error for somewhere between 100-500 (haven't tested the full range). I'll just stitch the .mov files together. I did this once before, but that was years ago, and I had forgotten how I did it... :smiley
