[FFmpeg-user] first two frames out of sequence

Hi there

I've recently been playing with ffmpeg to extract frames from videos at a fixed rate. I'm finding that the first two frames extracted are almost simultaneous (I think  the first two frames of the video), with subsequent frames extracted at the desired rate. It would be very helpful if I could stop it returning that initial out of sequence frame. Can it be done? Here's an example command:

ffmpeg -i C:/videos/01120095.MP4 -r 0.1 C:/videos/frames/frame-%02d.jpg
