I have been trying to find a way to convert a long video I have of Robin eggs hatching into a time lapse like short video only a few minutes long. My thought was to remove all but one frame of say every 1000 or something along this line. Does anyone know if this is possible? I have tried a few web suggestions but none have been succesful. You should know I don't have much video expertise (or money) so answers will have to be quite dumbed down and cheap. Thanks

AviSynth's SelectEvery command can do it easily:
That says to keep the first frame out of every 1,000. It's followed by the AssumeFPS command to set a framerate. It'll require reencoding, though. Depending on the format of the video, there's a chance it can be done without reencoding.

It was a WMV but I converted it to AVI/xvid
So, already one quality degrading step. Anyway, since it's an XviD AVI now, after installing AviSynth you can use AviSynth's AVISource on it:
AviSource("Video.avi")### replace with real name
SelectEvery(1000,0)###or whatever number you wish to use
AssumeFPS(29.97)###or whatever the original framerate was.
Open it in VDub as you would any video (File->Open Video File), choose and configure codec and encode. Let us know if you run into problems. If so, provide the script used and any error message
