Greetings video geeks! 😎
At my job, I’ve updated the process and way we create our .mp4 files that are shown on video pages on archive.org
found a nice (video lossless, best i can tell) way to convert the video from cameras like my Canon ELPH SD1400
OK, I’ve revamped my script to compile these tools:
i’m very pleased that after years of hacks here and there, all three heads of the current codebases pretty well build natively on mac (snow leopard) for
star wars comparison of two films
So I wanted to sit down in my updated home theatre and watch one of my favorite films, “Star Wars”. Problem is, I have two versions on DVD, and neither are ideal. The 2004 DVD version has remastered audio and video, but also added scenes and changes I really don’t like. The 1977 DVD version is a poor quality transfer and encoding.
I now use the FFMPEG package compiled locally on my Mac Leopard laptop.
If you want to take a bunch of JPEG images, you can turn them into a “motion JPEG” AVI video file (which is ideal for time-lapse). What’s neat about
ffmpeg, is you can turn a directory of JPEGs into an AVI and later recreate the JPEGs from the AVI.
ffmpeg v0.5 just came out. it’s the bomb. it’s got tons of fixes and massive amounts of new codecs that it can read. for example, it can now decode my professional filmmaker brother’s “DVC ProHD” highly proprietary (and massive bitrate!) format! it can also decode flac and 24-bit flac. (encoding flac is disappointing though).
