Thank you Alessandro! This code worked great for stitching together a time lapse from game camera footage.

Quick FYI, I started using your script and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. Turns out, many autosaved image files have the extension in CAPS (i.e. example.JPG). I fixed it in my copy, but may want to fix it in the master as well.
