Hi all - I wonder if you can help?

I am trying to record time lapse movies of clouds in the sky above our gliding site. Our otherwise-excellent Panasonic network webcams weave their recorded still images (jpgs I think) into a proprietary format called .PNC and likewise videos in .ASF.

I have searched the internet and not found a way to convert these formats to anything useful like JPEG, MPEG or indeed anything else.

As far as I can see, the proprietary viewer from Panasonic does not export to another format - all you can do is Copy to Clipboard one image at a time.

Anyone found any solutions? Got any ideas for a workaround?

TIA

Phil

At the moment, there seems to be no soloutions or software out there that can convert the .pnc files to another workable format.

what make and model is your camera and what software are you using on your PC to view the files?

Thanks for the prompt reply. Looks like you have come to the same conclusion :down:

Using 1 x BL-C140
and 2 x BB-HCM-531 cameras. I downloaded the sdviewer.exe from the Panasonic site for Windows which is a very basic, clunky thing IMO. It doesn't seem to output to anything. There is nothing for Mac AFAIK (my main OS).

It does seem such an obvious omission not to allow for the output to be at least convertible to popular formats. Panasonic don't surely imagine that the world is going to come round to PNC and ASF format at this stage, do they?
