Looks like you could start with a time lapse film of this thread. (~_~)
Seems like a workable idea. Irfan View can be set up to do time-based snashots of the screen direct to a file with the date and time stamp in the file name, so I guess you could show the feed from your webcam fullscreen, and grab it at ten minute intervals or whatever.
This story might give you some tips on how to proceed with motion activation of the camera: click here
Muckle, thanks for that, how often do you get a free, tiny unobtrusive program that does what you want, ticking away taking time lapse pics quite happily as we speak......now, about that movie project, any way to turn hundreds of pics in to a movie?
Pesala, haven't tried the irfanview route yet but probably will, mostly just because I love the program, why use any other still viewer I say!
Alan2 yep, definitly registered but don't think they would scramble a helicopter to find me! Only prob with using the digicam is that I am far too mean to buy a mains adaptor and all those wires, in the kitchen!!!
......now, about that movie project, any way to turn hundreds of pics in to a movie? Running XP you already have a program that will do the job for you Basic but a good starting point to learn about movie editing, in Windows Movie Maker. There is a free (essential in my opinion)upgrade to Moviemaker2 available. Sorry havent got the site at my fingertips but a google search will find it. There are many free programs available checkout this forum for very good advice. click here
