    I am looking for software other than Premiere Pro (above my budget) or Final Cut Pro (I'm using Windows) to import jpeg's and make them into a movie. They are from 8mm film so I need to also be able to adjust the frame rate to 16 or 18 fps. Any suggestions please? I'm not after free software, a couple of hundred dollars is fine, just not a couple of thousand! Pinnancle Studio doesn't work. CyberLink PowerDirector has good reviews but I'm not sure of it's capability in this regard. Anyone using this or other software in this manner?

    If the jpegs are named and numbered sequencially, then you just import as an image sequence at any framerate you choose. You can use Virtualdub (free) for this and export to your codec of choice.

    I use Gif Movie Gear which allows you to set the frame rate for each frame. You can set GMG to export as 24 bit so you're not just stuck with 256 color GIFs but can save as avi, animated or still png, swf

    Why spend money needlessly when freeware can do it just as well or better? I'd use an AviSynth script to open them in just about any encoder and then encode into just about any format you wish. This is similar to what racer-x suggested.
