Hi, I've made a mandelbrot set explorer applet...
Mandelbrot set

I've just worked out how to save BufferedImages as jpgs,gifs etc.etc,
on the hard-drive (won't work on applet, though since its not signed, but should be fine on an application).

So... what I would like to do is make a movie by slowly zooming into the set, and saving the BufferedImage created each time.

Then, if I can somehow string the images together, I can make a cool zooming in affect.

So... I could either just output each pic to screen with a Thread.sleep(100) inbetween each pic, or perhaps (if possible) make an MP4 file from all the pics, and would be nice to play this from inside the application.

Any ideas on this?

Either The Java Media Framework or Quicktime for Java would let you create movies form single images. They support various file formats, but I'm not sure about mp4. Links to both are here.
