I have been trying to make an 8K MP4 video @ 30 FPS out of a few hundred 8K PNG images using FFMPEG since forever, but to no avail. The PNG images are serially numbered, starting from 000000 and going like 000001, 000002, 000003 etc. They are also in the same folder as the FFMPEG directory.

This is the command I am using:

ffmpeg -framerate 30 -i 000%3d.png -pix_fmt yuv420p out.mp4`

I have tried various other permutations of the command but no joy. Any help is appreciated.

UPDATE: I renamed all my PNG files to the following format: pic000.PNG, pic001.PNG, pic002.PNG etc.

After doing that I ran this command: ffmpeg -framerate 30 -i "pic%03d.png" -level:v 6.0 -pix_fmt yuv420p output.mp4 -report

Here is the error report:

  • @Gyan Nothing really. I execute the BAT file but nothing happens. No file is outputted and I don't get any errors. Thanks for commenting btw!

  • Add -report to the ffmpeg cmd and rerun. Share report file.

  • This is the input url that ffmpeg sees: -i "picC:\\Users\\User\\Videos\\FFMPEG\\tif-to-mp4.bat3d.png" . See the last two lines.
