I have a perl script to do that using ImageMagick.
Other guys has posted a bash script that does the same.

You need hardware to capture the images, maybe a Quickcam or something. For
medium quality visit the site mentioned above, card LML33 is great for VHS
and such things. And IIRC it writes JPGs directly (or via included tools).

>I currently have Caldera with following image processing programs:

Get newer version if you want. 1.0.4 estable (w/ GTK+ 1.2), 1.1.11 developer.

>Blender 1.36

Hey! Current is 1.70, lot of new things, upgrading is recommended.
