Look at ffmpeg. It will run on just about anything and should do what you want, although it might depend on what your source actually is Something like this should work : ffmpeg -i sourcefile.avi -f image2 'img-%03d.jpeg' (see the image2 section for full reference)
For a good GUI based on libavcodec (which a ffmpeg library), take a look at handbrake. Might be a bit too detailed for a very "simple" user, but with some effort it's manegable. It also supports saving of presets, so you can set it up for easy use.
If the frame-rate is not too high and you can associate a frame with a precise timestamp then the easiest would be to add the metadata as textual subtitles. The other option is to mux the metadata as standard headers in .mp4 or similar container format. .mp4 can be broken down into multiple fragments, each one with its own header, and theoretically this can ...
Using Quicktime Player 7 you can export any movie file as an Image Sequence Open your .mov file using Quicktime 7 File > Export In the Export dropdown select Movie to Image Sequence Open the options and set the export format (eg JPEG or PNG) If you want just the current frame leave the frames per second blank. Otherwise, enter hte videos frame rate and ...
Try those calculators, they should do the trick. http://www.videospaceonline.com/ http://www.digitalrebellion.com/webapps/videocalc
I'm not sure how this fits into a streaming strategy, but the DPX file format includes per-frame metadata (potentially a great deal of it). This Wikipedia article has the basic info. I'm also not clear on what you mean by 'bound permanently'. In the AVI file container the "I" stands for "Interleaved", where video and audio packets (roughly) alternate in the ...
I just found out how to solve my problem. The H.264 codec is the issue, it somehow does not work with it and AE gives you a warning: Output file will be resized from 2085 x 2560 (1.0 PAR) to 2000 x 2000 (1.0 PAR) to meet format constraints. Solution: I went with the MPEG4 codec and it worked as I wanted.
FLV is an Adobe container for streaming video. Historically, FLVs usually contained a variety of codecs (such as FLV1, Sorenson..etc) but nowadays it's usually H.264. Which is to say, the video may already be MP4 compatible. You may not need to recompress the video at all, and could simply transfer it from a FLV container to MP4, bypassing Premiere. ffmpeg ...
This is most likely a problem related to the app you are using to create/view these stop-motion videos. If you have portrait-orientated pictures, creating a video accordingly is simply a matter of setting the right video dimensions (i.e. video width and height in pixels); basically every video editing software allows you to set this manually or choose from a ...
With Adobe you can render most things through Adobe Media Encoder. AME has the ability to render one project file as different formats and you can actually create somewhat of a list and it will treat it as a queue.
The logo on the manual I could find indicates that it was standard 8mm, not Hi8 or Digital8. If you are in a PAL region, then most likely it is the PAL version of 8mm. You should be able to use any PAL based 8mm playback deck or camcorder to play the tape back. You then be able to use a standard video capture device to digitize the video that you ...
Convert the 50fps down to 24fps. You cannot convert it the other way around, the data is simply not there. Actually, I think there is a way to do it, but it's pointless. Think about it. You have 24 frames a second. That's what you recorded - that's what you have. By converting it to 50fps you are essentially doubling the information, but gaining no quality. ...
I have done this before a lot of times. I don't prefer FCP to do that, I use Autodesk Combustion (or better), or After Effects to do ALL my conversion before start working. Your question is all about: "What format/codec/media is the output of my video?" So, I advice you to work in a HD timeline and upres low-resolution videos, even if the final product ...
The codec question is the easier one: use ProRes. It preserves quality very well and FCP likes to edit it. As for what frame rates, image dimensions, etc. the general approach should be to go to the highest resolution of any of the originals so you aren't discarding any data. So, upconvert to 50 fps rather than downconvert to 24 fps. Similarly for image ...
