Digital Camera Movies - preliminary


During the Front Range Air Pollution and Photochemistry Experiment (FRAPPE), the NSF/NCAR C-130 (Tail Number C130_N130AR) flew digital cameras for in-flight video capture. Individual photo images (JPEG format) 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.
