ok, but with relative paths it don't works.

stefan at mona:~/tests$ ls
dest  source
stefan at mona:/tmp$ pic2mpg -v 1 source dest
./DSCN2155.JPG -> dest/./DSCN2155.JPG.mpg
./DSCN2154.JPG -> dest/./DSCN2154.JPG.mpg
removing ./DSCN2155.JPG.mpg
removing ./DSCN2154.JPG.mpg
dest: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

the script will create a dest dir in source (/tmp/source/dest/) and
delete the files after finishing.

the script only works with absolute paths correctly.
