    Default ImageMagick mpeg2encode error


    I am trying to get the mpeg2encode delegate working on imageMagick so
    that I can create an mpg video from a series of jpg images that I have.

    Currently when I run:

    > convert -image-*.jpg -movie-.jpg


    I get the following error:

    > convert: Delegate failed "mpeg2encode" "%o" "%i"


    So I am guessing that the mpeg2encode is some kind of additional plug
    in for IM - but where do I find it? I have scoured the repos with no
    luck, and a general search yields plenty of rpms for debian, though
    nothing for suse.

    Does anybody have any ideas how I can get this working, or have any
    suggestions for other suse based applications that I can use to merge a
    series of .jpg files together into a movie?

    I know it can be done using .gifs, however the software I am outputting
    from (ParaFoam) doesn't export in .gif format, and I am keen to not have
    to convert all of the output .jpgs into .gifs fisrt...

    Currently running OpenSuse 11.0 with Gnome on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61p.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    The reason is that mpeg2encode is not FOSS and so cannot be distributed;
    the following thread explains the situation: 'ImageMagick • View
    topic - mpeg2encode licensing issue'
    (http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse...hp?f=3&t=11827)
