If you can't find a Rev-only solution, one app to consider is BTV 
Pro, a shareware product available for both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.

BTV Pro has lots of capture options, including live video via 
FireWire. You can capture continuously or at specific intervals, for 
the duration you want. You can even capture using motion sensitivity 
-- catch a bird splashing in a birdbath. Lots of options.

Best of all, BTV Pro is all AppleScriptable, so anything BTV Pro can 
do you can do with Revolution.

There's a demo available. Note that BTV Pro is required for FireWire; 
the other version doesn't support it.
