The program captures jpeg-images and saves them under
Use the MovieMaker (Processing>Tools>MovieMaker) to generate a QuickTime-Movie file out of it.
Runs on: Win/Mac/Linux.
Written in: Processing.
- Onion Skinning (wikipedia)
- Movie Export (instead: use the MovieMaker-Tool provided by Processing or a Video-Editor)
- Anything exceeding the absolute minimum.
