    creating movies on linux

    On the windows version of my application I am creating a movie from 250 tif images using the windows AVI stream functions. Now i need my program to run on linux as well, and i cannot figure out how to create the movies. Does anyone know how to do this. C or C++ is fine. Thansk so much!

    so the windows version isn't in c or c++?

    if so, then import the project into a cross platform capable tool ( ide )and make sure that linux is enables in os options.

    ( it also helps to have same tool in linux )

    open project in linux version of the tool, then click the build button.

    if you used visual basic, then it will be easier for you to port it to c or c++ on windows than to port language and platform.

    borland's builderx is a cross platform enabling tool, unfortunately, unless you are using an older distro, the borland compiler isn't available on linux.

    qt ( trolltech ) is cross platform, and is available free for linux ( for gpl apps ) the cost of windows version / commercial license is in the $2,400.00 USD range. worth the investment if cross platform capability is something you are going to need often.
    ( cross platform for all os options, including macosx, the bsd(s), hpux, unix, linux, irix... )

    (1) Command line, with maybe perl(or something)wrapper
    (2) WxWindows
    (3) GTK+
    (4) QT
    (5) Wrapper for win32 and xlib <--- The type of person I am, and why I don't program GUIs
