[FFmpeg-user] second request - using "blackframe" filter to skip encoding of dark images

I figured out how to list black frames during video encoding, but I don't
know how I can drop those frames. Can ffmpeg do this using filters and/or

This is my commandline (it lists blackframes during encoding)

ffmpeg -f image2 -i vids\frame_%%d.jpg -vf blackframe=100:84 -an -r 10 -s
svga -sameq vids\%1_%timestamp%.mp4

Thanks for your time,
