Input.mpg contains a series of scenes. I have identified the points at which the scenes change. Scene 1 starts at 0:00, scene 2 starts at 1:29, scene 3 starts at 2:43, and so forth.
I would like to use batch commands to make lossless copies of those scenes, with each scene going into a separate file. My batch file contains a series of commands, like these:
ffmpeg -i input.mpg -ss 00:00:00 -to 00:01:29 -c:v copy -c:a copy output1.mp4 ffmpeg -i input.mpg -ss 00:01:29 -to 00:02:43 -c:v copy -c:a copy output2.mp4
Unfortunately, it seems the batch file must contain more than those commands, to prevent them from all running at once. I have tried variations on
start /w but apparently these are not the answer or I am not using them properly.
I'm looking for batch suggestions, but am open to other ways to achieve the objective. The command line seems like the way to go, as I am hoping to extract many excerpts from a large number of input files.
