ffmpeg image duration


im using ffmpeg for the image creation and video conversion my problem is i want to generate image(thumbnail) at different intervals. suppose that i upload a video then it calculate the video time and generate 5 images(thumbnail) at equal intervals.(e.g. suppose that the time period of the video is 50 minutes then images obtains at 0,10,20,30,40,50 intervals)
concept is that the length(duration) is variable so that if myvideo length is 60 minute image generated at the interval of 12minute

please help

If the sequence has only static images (no motion) than it make more sense to create an animated GIF file. And if it has to be a video file in the end, then convert that GIF file to some video format (should keep the timing settings).
