Can anyone recommend a *FREE* Windows program for converting a set of .JPG images from a time lapse sequence into a video format, preferable GUI rather than command line (a la ffmpeg) orientated.Continue

Effect of temperature on slime mould growth.

I haven't started growing a slime mould yet but I was wondering if anyone has studied the effect of temperature on physarum polycephalum. I've seen temperatures of 20 and 25 degrees C as normal…Continue

"Thanks Ian. I've since discovered OpenShot Video Editor which is pretty versatile but without all the bells and whistles of the two you mention.  Quite similar to the old Microsoft Movie Maker. (Envelope received.  Ta Muchly :¬)"

"If you want something more capable, Hitfilm express does a very nice job and so does Shotcut, I switched to shotcut because I can also use it on Linux, both enable you to pan and zoom around the shot a bit "

"Answering my own question the Windows 10 built-in Video Editor, although very basic, appears to do the job."

"I grow mine at 25ish - where the doubling time is about 10 hours, at 15C it's more like 20hours. If you shove one in the fridge it'll basically stop - but not die. At 35 physarum liquefies and stinks ( thermostat mishap). You've…"

Is this a wolf's milk slime mould fruiting body?

"Hi The texture looks a little rough. If you give 'em a poke with a finger ( not too hard ), the fruiting bodies feel kinda like a rubber ball filled with liquid whereas proper fungi tend to feel solid. If the white strands around the edge look…"

Is this a wolf's milk slime mould fruiting body?

I found three of these today on a rotting Scots pine trunk in the Lake District. About 8mm diameter and well apart in a shaded woodland. Is this a wolf's milk slime mould? (I think probably not because of the mycelium growths but I'm no expert.)

Profile Information

Name
Andy Stansfield
What is your interest in slime moulds? (we need to know you're not a bot or spamster)
I've always been an avid nature watcher with a particular interest in the weirder side of things and was just reminded recently of slime moulds (which out-weirds most things) by a TV documentary; The Blob - A Genius Without a Brain. I've recently retired so have more time to pursue my enthusiasms and have a few ideas on amateur level research so would like to join the group to give and receive feedback.
