You can download the latest source code at Elphel's SVN hosted at sourceforge.net. Check the README file for build information. movie2dng uses scons and is know to build on Linux (Ubuntu), Mac OS X and Windows using Mingw32).
movie2dng is a command line program, the usage is the follow:
movie2dng --help movie2dng [options] FILENAME FRAME This program will convert the FILENAME JP4 movie to individual frames named FRAME-NNNNNN.dng, where NNNNNN will be replaced by the frame number starting at 1. Note that there is no need to specify the .dng extension on the frame name, it will be added automatically. If you want to save frames on a different directory, use something like DIRECTORY/FRAME, for example. [options] -v, --version display program version information. -h, --help show this help message.
I'm going to use Launchpad as bug tracker for this project, please feel free to add bugs there, code is maintained both on Launchpad and SVN (Launchpad is a mirror a sf.net SVN).
