Forward-Looking Digital Camera Movies [NCAR/RAF] - Preliminary
During the MPEX project, the NSF/NCAR GV HIAPER flew a forward looking digital camera for in-flight video capture. Individual JPEG photo images were captured once per second during flights. Images taken after dark have been stripped and the remaining images were converted to Quicktime (.MOV) and MPEG (.MP4) movie files. The movies are H.264 and MPEG-4 codec playable with Quicktime (Mac and Windows), Xine (Linux), Mplayer, or VLC (cross-platform). The original images are 1024x768 pixels and were recorded at 1 frame/second. The movies are set to play back at 512x384 pixels and 15 fps. The three test flights (TF01-TF03) and research flights (RF01-RF15) took place between 5-07-2013 and 6-14-2013.
