Forward-Looking Digital Camera Movies [NCAR/RAF] - preliminary



During HIPPO-3, the GV_N677F flew a forward looking digital camera for in-flight video capture. Individual photo jpeg images were captured once per second during flights. Images taken after dark have been stripped from this archive. Remaining images were converted to Quicktime movie files. The movies are h.264 codec playable with Quicktime (Mac and Windows), xine, (linux) and mplayer (many platforms). 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. Preliminary movies, containing only imagery, were made for in-field analysis and education and outreach through flight RF06 only. Final movies, which display selected data values alongside the images, exist for all flights. See link below.
