*Creates a time lapse movie from a pre-existing collection of pictures (usually JPEGs)
*Can write the .avi file using various compression codecs or can make it uncompressed for later editing. (Zero loss of quality from picture to movie.)
*Video resolution is automatically determined from the loaded images, and can easily be resized by percent. (Original images are not touched, and resizing is "instant".)
*The easiest way to make a great timelapse movie. It takes only TWO clicks and 3 seconds, with the default settings, to make a movie. (Select images, Create movie)
*The application is userfriendly, idiot-proof, portable, quick and nimble.
*It needs no installation, (folder is portable) is about 23 MB in size on HDD, is stable and will NEVER use more than 125 MB of Your RAM. It has been stress-tested with 50.000 files at once, and should be able to take more.
Potential output codecs:
Movie format: *.avi
Any x32 or x64 Windows above and including Windows XP
You need to have installed .NET4 from Microsoft. Chances are, You already have installed it via Windows update, or from other programs You already use.

Version: Time Lapse MovieMonkey 1.2
Super-easy to use and understand.
The version currently available is not working and has a major usability flaw. The usability flaw: there is no control over where the file is saved, and it doesn't tell you where it goes. Only after opening a JPEG help file did I learn that it saves your movie to the folder where the application is installed. No program in the world does this, and it's crazy inconvenient. Functional flaws: it claims to have created the movie, offering you the choice of either "play movie" or "open folder." But it doesn't take you to the folder where the file is, rather it takes you to the top level of the C Drive. Then, even when you manually navigate down into the program's folder, there is no movie folder there, in spite of what the JPEG instruction sheet says. Using the filename, I did a complete search of the computer. It simply doesn't exist.
