Making folder of JPEGs into a QuickTime movie? - Mac Applications & Software

Seems as if it should be possible to make a folder of JPEG images into a QuickTime movie or slide show in one step using QuickTime Pro -- iView Media Pro can do it very neatly, for example. If there are instructions on how to do this in the QT Help messages, however, I haven't found them; and I've now bought two books on QuickTime Pro, and neither of them say how to do this. Is there a way?...

    Sure: File -> Open Image Sequence...

    Your JPEGs need to be saved as a numbered list, e.g., "pic001.jpg",
    "picoo2.jpg", ..., etc.

    Specify the frame rate you want, then choose File -> Export to save as a
    self-contained movie.

    And if they aren't already numbered, you can use Renamer4Mac (freeware)
    to rename them.

    Except that the number must be the _last_ character(s) of the file name,
    and the file name must not otherwise differ. For example, "pic.jpg001",
    "pic.jpg002" or "pic.jpg_001", "pic.jpg_002" etc are correct and will
    work. But "pic1.jpg_001", "pic2.jpg_002" etc does not work.

    This numbering scheme of course does not sound logical at all, but, hey,
    thatīs how it is ;)

    Really? I've never had any trouble putting the numbers before the file
    extension...

    I did. But now that you mentioned, I created a sample sequence and it
    indeed does work like you say! They can be named "001_pic.jpg", or
    "pic001.jpg" and it still works. I wonder what was wrong the first time
    I tried this, becaus ethen the only way to get it to work was to put the
    number after the filename. :/
    My bad.

    Don't know for sure, but wouldn't it be most likely that they'd just
    follow the Mac Finder sorting rules?

    (which would mean that you wouldn't have to use numbers, letters would
    do as well?)

    (and also you'd get orderings like

    pic1
    pic10
    pic11
    pic12
    pic2
    pic3
    pic4
    pic5
    etc
