R package to support the FlyMovieFormat video format originally developed by Andrew Straw and colleagues, initially at Caltech. Presently this provides functions to read and parse the intial header of a fmf file and then to read individual images frames and timestamp information. fmf files are frequently used as intermediates for analysis of fly behaviour.
There is support for both
- FMF (simple raw format)
- UFMF (compressed by background subtraction)
