Basically it boils down to implementing Alan's suggestion of exporting the
JPEGs out of the video and Subbu triggered the idea of after I drag all the
images in, I can simply drag select the images and drop them in a holder
(before I was doing it one at a time).

So far this works well, need to test on Windows and with video formats other
than AVI.  Will post a how to after some more testing and playing.
