As we all know, Hollywood is well known for predicting new science and technologies since 1920. We always hear a rumour that technologies would be commercialize after they are used and outdated in US military defence. Now I have three questions in my mind
  1. Is Hollywood writers genius enough to predict the coming technology ?
  2. Does Hollywood and Defence exchange information?
  3. Is the Hollywood science fiction writers dictating scientists what to do subconsciously or they are scientists themselves?
Dear RGs your comment and contribution at least on one of these will be appreciated

But i don't know how to make the movie and final analysis of  the steered molecular dynamics job from multiple DCD file and Restart file.
So, can anyone help me to find out the solution.

My lab has a Nikon DS-Fi1 camera with a U2 controller. We have the free NIS-Elements F software but we really need some of the capabilities of NIS Elements BR, such as movie making, but the $3000 price tag for NIS Elements BR is way out of our budget. Has anyone got this hardware to work with any cheaper software?

Well, Stephen, you can still capture video using the DLL files that are used to interact with your camera and the user Interface, i.e. and GUI and API interface. Some cameras are offered with the Camera Twain Driver through which you can capture both still images and the videos. There are plenty of such programs available and some might be free. Try looking for such an approach and you should be able to achieve what you want!
Best Luck!

Hi Nainsi,
Refer the brochure for the DFC450C camera. It is basically an imaging camera to take pictures at 2560X1920 pixel resolution with 9 frames per second frame rate. This is not a video recording solution that you are looking at.
There are other resolutions with higher frame rates of 18FPS and 30FPS respectively at 1280X960 and 640X480 pixel resolutions but with color binning. This will eventually have some quality issues.
But that does not mean you cannot make videos. What you can do is collect large picture (files) and combine them with your software (if the feature is available) into a movie format .
Looking at the specs in the info-sheet of the camera, it is not clear whether it supports the recording of video in any way. Also check if your software with the camera has any provisions to make movies using the images acquired.
Else you look for some other software that can combine images into movie file. A long time ago with MIcrosoft Windows(R) XP the movie maker has such feature but I haven't used any movie maker on newer versions of Windows.
If any further information is needed please feel free to ask me at prasanna.waichal@fnu.ac.fj
Thanks
