i shot a series of timelapse images with my sony a7 as i "built" my tobu drawing. tonight i started the job of finding an appropriate tool for making a timelapse movie out of the images.
|almost 6000 images counting 25 gb. size matters!|
earlier i have used adobe after effects for such a purpose. with current price model i am no longer a adobe user. i tried using "quik" aka "gopro studio". no luck. my high res image formats were not supported. i searched google. discovered several alternatives, and got convinced that ffmpeg was the tool for me. i was right.
|env for envious, or environment. add a path to ffmpeg.|
spent a few hours reading the docs, testing, and writing some code. super happy with the choice i made. ffmpeg is feature rich. the possibilities seems endless. and, it is free and open source. now i have generated a movie from the images. to be released in the near future, to a screen near you.
