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.
