wolfgang,
Thanks for the help (your email of 16:35 pm)
See my last email.
Just loaded ffmpeg successfully and am appending more strips to those already completed, then I will try to make a movie.

Wolfgang,
While continuing scanning, I added another 129 or so strips to those already scanned, and then the process stopped with the attached error message. I was able to continue generating frames from what had been scanned up to that point. Sorry I couldn't print the message, but was able to photograph it with my cellphone, in two pieces.
Error Message.jpg

question: My start strip was SCA30001.jpg and the end strip is SCA30999.jpg. The total strips scanned was about 169 when it stopped. The setup is to scan 5 frames, first frame being 1.
When I generated the frames, the first frame is numbered SCA0......6 rather then SCA0.....0, so the generate a movie would not work.
Should the start strip be SCA30000.jpg? Would that have produced a first frame "SCA300...000.jpg"?
Hope you can read the error message!

ScanController StartStrip setting.
Hello John,

the scan Controller starts storing scanned strips in the target folder with the number composed from the start strip number set in "Start number field". If this strip already exist, it is overridden.
If you want to add new strips at the end of the already available strips, you have to press the button richt of the start number filed.
It gives you the next free number in the target folder.Ths first strip in the target folder alwaays should (not must) have the number 0000

Wolfgang,
Thanks for all of the help.
I figured out how to load ffmpeg, which is installed. I am running win XP.
I am current with the latest versions of cinetovidpro and scan controller, and by trial and error, I have successfully scanned 215 strips, SCA30000.jpg thru SCA30215.jpg. I did the brightness adjustments you recommended with positive result. At the 215th scan, the process stopped with a long error message.

A generic error occurred in GDI+.

at ScanController.MainFrame.Main(String[] args)

At that point, I attempted to generate frames, which completed successfully. 358 individual frames beginning with SCA30000006 and ending with SCA30000363. I then attempted to generate a movie, but that would not work, as there was no "0000" frame in the frames folder. the first frame was "SCA30000006". Looking back at the startstrip, it was entered as SCA30001.jpg, and the end strip SCA30599.jpg. I expected that if all strips were conferted to frames there would by 1,075 frames in the frames folder, since the process is setup to scan 5 film frames. beginning with frame 1.
QUESTION1: should the start strip have been SCA30000.jpg?
QUESTION2: should the first film frame to scan be "0" rather then 1
Question3: since I have 358 good frames, how can i add back the tirst 5 frames that are missing, i.e. SCA30000000 - SCA30000005? Would hate to lose those:
Thanks,
Johnc

Wolfgang,
Just figured out what is causing my problems, i.e. error message!
My target files were on an 8gb flash drive, but it ran out of space!
After cleaning off a bunch, everything worked. I also managed to restore the first 5 frames in the frame folder.
I apologize for taking up your time unnecessarily!

Hello John,

thanks for the information about the error reason.

To your question:
Yes: if you want to use ffmpeg your first frame must start with number 0000.
This is a requirement of FFMPEG.

If your strips start with number 0000 this is a given, but if your first strip starts with 0001,
the first frame number will be greater 0.
But you can fix that problem just by duplicating your first strip (e.g. with IrfanView) and insert the duplicate with number 0000 in the STRIPS folder. By using Irfanview that is achieved by saving strip ...001 with number ...000 . In this case the fist strip will have the correct starting number for FFMPEG and you can cut off the first (duplicate) frames in your final film by using a video editor.

Great!
I am learning alot!
Moving on from getting the process to run through frame generation, is again, a new area fraught with questions, mainly due to lack of background and expertise. In addition, as an engineer, and I am sure you can understand where I am coming from, I tend to analyse as I read looking for orderly explanations and well worded, well defined steps in process. Honestly, I think that your German thinking process as well is language background makes for a communications Gap. I suspect you think in German, and conversion of your thought process to English doesn't track the same. Maybe I am off base here, but have had the same problem with Spanish and Swedish engineers,where their first language is not English. Please don't be insulted, as I that is not my intent. I truly appreciate what you have created with Cinetovidpro, and scan controller, and am eager to move on with it. Actually, I have tried several methods to do film to DVD transfer, and have come back to cintovidpro as the method of choice.
Again, thanks for the help and for sharing your expertise!

Wolfgang,
I am now in the processing and post processing area with my test movie.
Question:
1. cinetovidpro produced a movie, but upon review it was only part of the frames in the project FRAMES folder. Looking closely, I found gaps in the frame numbering at several places in the file.
I suspect that there were corrupt frames that were rejected leaving a space.
How do I correct the numbering? Hopefully not by renaming all 3400 frames?
2. After reviewing all of the available, free, editor software, there is not much appropriate for a beginner. windows movie maker, virtualdub look good, but are limited.
As a work around to item 1., I looked for a way to make a movie of each sequence and then try to append them or copy and paste them together. Is that the appropriate way to do it? If not, how!
Thanks
john
