The problem is that IM is using delegates who has no idea of frame number wanted. As such the deleget would need to convert the whole movie.

You are better in this sort of processing to use the delegate directly to extract the frames, then use IM to process those images.

IM is a image processor, not a movie processor, and its method of handling files reflects this.

Sorry, but if you find out, let me know so I can include in the IM examples.

You can look at the delegates.xml file to find out what IM is using.
