I have a few stop motion projects that are a collection of images and a few that are just 10 to 40 minute clips of me moving my models through the motions. I'm looking for a simple and free-ish (hopefully not something more than 25-30 dollars) that can do two things.
1) Combine all of those images into a movie file, showing each image for one second. 2) Opening up a movie file and either showing me one second clips I can cut/export into pictures or splitting up a movie file into one second clips I can delete out to create my animation.
I've got a windows laptop and an iPad to work with.
Hitfilm Express and Lightworks seem way to complicated from what I've downloaded and tried, Windows Movie Maker can't even take .mp4 files, and I even tried iMovie for the iPad and I can't seem to split a movie up the way I want it.
Any suggestion is helpful.
Edit 1: Lightworks doesn't allow you to export a still image unless you get the pro version. Hitfilm pro doesn't allow you any export options until you promote their software on your social media. Those two options seem out.
Edit 2: I'm having good initial results with Avidemux as far as capture still frame images go. I haven't tried to re-import 50-100 still images and attempt to create a movie out of those.
