I'm wondering if there's a tifflib utility to cut and copy pieces out of TIFF images. That is, to produce an output TIFF image based on an input TIFF image and the corner coordinates of a rectangle to be copied. Seems like a natural extension to tiffcp.

My application: a poor-man's telecine. I want to scan strips of 16mm movie film using a scanner with a transparency lid, then cut the individual frames out into separate TIFF still images, which can then be combined into a .AVI movie file with another bit of software. For starters, I'd locate the sprocket hole pixel coordinates manually, and later perhaps via some simple pattern recognition.

Maybe there's an easier way to do this?
