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
So I combined the 1977 and 2004 DVDs into the highest quality 1977 version of the film! I show all my scripts and techniques here, too, so you can make the same version from your two DVDs, too!
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).
