If it's a movie you've clicked on as a potential track, it will be in your 'myevents' section. If you didn't click on it, although it is possible, what would be the point?

Go to C:\Documents and Settings\[WINDOWS LOGIN NAME]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

every movie is there. Actually it is a series of pictures. Not a movie. Each focus range is another picture. Copy them to a folder and sort them in order of date and you can use the Windows Fax Viewer to scan through them.

Probably a good idea to clean out your Temporary Internet Files before you start scanning the movies that way you want have to sort through all the other thousands of cache files there. You can not view these jpgs from the Temporary Internet Files folder; they have to be copied to a folder of your choice and then they work just like a picture file.

I have seen movies "linked" in various posts that include the whole movie in question...so that we can play them back and get our opinions.

The "screen saves" of a single frame have been useful also, but not as effective as running the whole enchilada.

This could be a way too basic question, but I can't figure out how it's done.

Thanks again....
Chris

Take each frame and animated it in some sort of animation program. You can reformat them to a gif file and use microsoft gif animator. Or probably use a movie maker and combine each jpg as a frame and make a movie. However, I like the fax viewer. You can scan real fast and see the progression that way and back or forward each frame just as in the stardust program.

I am a picture nut so I like to collect an put them together as well to show them to people. Fun to play around with.

you can also just make a link to the movie in the database (as long as it isn't a calibration movie). just change the movie id at the end of this url:
http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... e_id=41096

and when you're posting the movie, it's compact to do it like this:

ramrom & mwhiz,

Thanks for the instructions from both of you today!

Both techniques are exactly what I wanted to accomplish.
