I tried out an application called QuickSnap which does exactly what
you require. I include the README from that application. Although
it refers to a QuickCam, I found that it would work with any camera
attached to the video port of an AV board.
I wasn't able to get into the utoronto server to check if the
application is still there. You might try archie.
Here is the README.
Hope this helps.
A cool application for your connectix quickcam !
QuickSnap is a time-lapse and still image photography application
for use with a Connectix QuickCam. It can save
images directly as JPEG's files and also features automatic exposure
with spot metering. This means you can make time-lapse movies of
flowers opening under real world lighting conditions !!!
New Features 0.9:
New windowing structure allows multiple photo's.
The viewfinder window does not need to be foremost.
You can copy picture to the desk scrap from the viewfinder.
Can grab pictures while in the background !
Time Stamping option
New Features 0.9.5:
Much Better Movie Recording Options
If you Quit while recording the Movie will be saved.
Single Frame Recording.
QuickSnap is shareware. If you use this program, the fee is
US$25.00. You will receive a registration code which will turn on
various cool features like "JPEG comments" and Pausing & Single
Frame Recording of Time Lapse Movies. Oh yeah, it will also
customise the application. Send the registration fee to
P.O. Box 1220,
Hey, if you really can't afford it, just send me a postcard, or
email me a JPEG as an attachment to a
"thank you for writing this software" note
(tim at jurgen.physics.utoronto.ca).
The latest version and updates, information e.t.c. are available
from the world wide web site
Connectix QuickCam (installed)
System 7.1 or later.
68020 or higher processor.
QuickTime 2.0 & Multimedia Tuner
The multimedia tuner is available from ftp.support.apple.com and
makes things work heaps better.
I used Metrowerks Codewarrior 5 to write this application on a
Powerbook Duo 4/200 with RamDoubler
and I used Infinity Windoid 2.6 for the Info window WDEF routines.
