I think this is probably less of a question for video production people as much as it is for Geographic Information Systems (GIS) people. GIS Forum on Stack Exchange While you might be able to find an After Effects (AE) wizard who knows some scripting tricks to make this happen, my guess is more folks over in a GIS forum know how to do this in something ...

There are a lot of answers regarding open source on this answer: Good open source Video Editors? If you specifically target Linux I'd suggest Lightworks or Kdenlive. Lightworks isn't open source yet but is announced to be after the mac release is finished. Both a great option for video editing under Linux and fullfill your requirements. Lightworks has only ...

You could do this by making subtitles from your data streams and then either playing them back on a media player that can display subtitles, or rendering them into the video. Most subtitle formats are very simple ascii files — to demonstrate, here's an srt subtitle file: 1 00:00:01,046 --> 00:00:02,540 This is my home. 2 00:00:03,560 --> ...

You are over thinking it. Edit a quick beep in before the audio starts on the song, play the song aloud while you are recording the drums. Hit one of your drums so that you can see and hear it quickly on the video as well. Record the audio direct from your drums and have a third track that is the microphone for the camera. The camera audio track will ...

Blender has video editing options, and of course, it is free. Check it out.

Somewhat of an duplicate of: Can I manually change an .mp4 to .m4v by changing the extension in the Finder (mac) or explorer (win)? MP4 and M4V are essentially the exact same thing, M4V is usually used to indicate video only files but some sofware/companies are using it for standard MP4 files with video AND audio (lots of Apple software f.e.). It's just a ...

First off there would be Lightworks, which is free with some limitations. It's a pure abomination and needs a lot of learning an rethinking if you're used to usual NLE software. Then, what most people don't think of, there would be Blender. Actually a 3D rendering software, but also a very good, free/open source video editor. Like all software, it has a ...

With consumer targeted software, there is less of a standard of how to do things. For professional software, there are pretty standardized workflows that editors follow and so tools are pretty similar. For beginner software, while the basic concepts are still similar, the way in which they simplify them is not. The end results that are possible are still ...

MP4muxer will do the job, it even takes raw h264 streams. This process is usually called "muxing" and can be done with virtually any container format. Of course audio and video has to have the exact same length to have synchronized audio and video.

I would use ffmpeg. Just write a sript in any scripting language you prefer and tell ffmpeg to encode new files depending on the total duration of the source file and let it only encode a certain amount of time. You can completely automate this sort of workflow with ffmpeg.

I have no practical experience, but you might take a look at using a (linux) computer with blackmagic decklink or intensity pro card. There are command line tools like bmdtools which (should) allow you to interface the capture card. https://github.com/lu-zero/bmdtools You could then pipe the video input to ffmpeg to record. I don't know of a setting to ...

After Effects, especially with Mocha, has the most advanced motion tracking and stabilization capabilities of these 3 options, but they are also the most complicated to use if you want the best possible results. (Note that AE also does offer simple options like Warp Stabilizer if you don't need super advanced stabilization.) The options in Final Cut Pro X ...

Adobe Flash is designed to work with animating vector graphics and allowing playback of vector animations, but it requires that a user have Flash Player installed. I know there are third party Flash authoring applications out there, but I don't know what, if any, exist on Linux, or if they are still maintained as Flash has been falling out of favor all over ...

A tool to do that would be FFmpeg but unfortunately it does not support PDF decoding. Though you can convert your pdf's to png's using imagemagick (relevant question on askUbuntu). And then create a movie out of those PNG's with ffmpeg. This guide on the ffmpeg page explains how, here an example command: ffmpeg -r 1/5 -i img%03d.png -c:v libx264 -r 30 ...

Adobe After Effects is probably the most common application for creating motion graphics. There are plenty of books and tutorials out there to get your started.

I was going to recommend Kino which is the one I used when I needed to do that, but according to their web page the project is no longer mantained, so you can either use it the way it is or try the other software that is recommended on their web page: Shotcut, Kdenlive, Flowblade, OpenShot, PiTiVi, LiVES, and LightWorks.

A great tool that I personally work with is vvvv. A very mighty visual programming toolkit somewhat comparable to Quartz Composer on Mac but available for Windows (only for Windows for now but future versions might be multi plattform according to the devs). For getting started I highly recommend this cheat sheet ...

If software is all you're interested in, here are a few options: Quartz Composer Pixel Conduit Resolume VDMX Arkaos Modul8 Personally I've only tried Quartz. It's hugely powerful and free, but the learning curve can be quite steep. It's more of a node programming language for video graphics, that's what makes it so powerful. Some downsides are that it's ...

I would go with either jing ( http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html ) free or Camtasia ( http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html ) both from Techsmith. Camtasia allow you to zoom in on part of the screen after recording but before rendering. This basically solves your problem and is great when you need to create video to a resolution that is less than the ...

Video editing software is a tool to do video editing. Any decent textbook should teach video editing, not video editing software. Conversely if you know how to edit, most NLEs (the technical term for video editing software) should be pretty intuitive. I can sit down at any decent NLE you put in front of me and start editing without a manual, but I've ...

You could try if kolor works for you. It's not free but it's made for your exact needs. Check out the gallery for what they did. Or you can do it manually as Adam explains.

I tried kdenlive, so I'll post my findings about it as an answer. It didn't quite do the job, so I'm not going to mark this as the accepted solution. kdenlive easily imports my clips in mjpeg+pcm, and flac. And looks like it can export through ffmpeg, which is what I want. It has a feature to "set audio reference", and for other tracks, "align audio to ...

Here is a hack. You can use Blender and the Blackbody Node of Cycles Render Engine. Following example shows a realtime viewport animation of the color temperature in kelvin: Create some geometry (e.g. a plane) as light emitter Setup an Emission shader Create a Blackbody node and plug it into the Emission Color Position your camera Switch your Camera by ...

If you can't adjust the monitor, then send it something other than pure white. @poor already posted an answer to do this with Blender, but that seems like HUGE overkill. I would have just booted Linux, logged in remotely, and done DISPLAY=:0 xsetroot -solid '#fff' to set a solid white background, or any other color I wanted. And there's probably ...

From the ffmpeg docs ffmpeg -i LEFT -i RIGHT -filter_complex framepack=sbs OUTPUT framepack only works with 2 inputs, but you could merge 3 with a more complex filtergraph. sbs means side-by-side. This doesn't correct for perspective or handle the overlap or anything else needed for it to look good, and the word "panorama" doesn't appear in the ffmpeg ...

Try Blender's Video Editing. If Video and audio where recorded at the same time it will be easy to sync them, just be sure your video frame rate is correctly set in Blender and that you check synced in the video editor (at the bottom beside the time line and play, stop, etc... buttons. Don't be scared by Blender's complexity, you are not going to use any ...

Are you trying for photo of video. For video, it seems likely that this functionality is not well supported. I took a look at the code for Pentax K-R and it is simply grabbing a buffered image from the camera for display, but this doesn't work well for video as it a) doesn't have audio and b) doesn't have reliable frame rates or updates. If you simply ...

CamStudio is a well-known free screen capture software. I used it, but didn't like it. Movavi suite has screen capture and video editing features, but it's not free. To get best results, you should use quality screen capture codec, not resize your source videos, use good video converter or editing software. Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional video editor ...

In order to get a near the high quality you require, you would have to use quite a high bit rate. Unfortunately the number of pixels that the video decodes to and the actual effective resolution of a video are not the same thing. Modern video compression will make the most effective use of the data rate you set the video to use, but the more you ...

Completely depends on the video codec and container format, there is no general tool to fix corrupted video files. Regarding avis with missing headers there is a good answer on this question. The info there also helps with recovering other video formats. To find more info about a certain file I recommend using MediaInfo in addition to ffprobe. It offers ...
