This is a simple but powerful bash script to create stop motion and time-lapse videos from an Internet URL or an attached video device (see examples). Simply point it at an image source, set the capture frequency, and starting recording stillframes. You can view your stillframes as a video, or convert to a true video format at any point. Bad frames can be browsed/removed with the operating system file browser.
