My Home Video Conversion Pipeline example

  1. ffmpeg -ss 1:23:40 -to 1:26:05 -i Coletta-Tape03.avi -vf yadif -crf 12 temp1.mp4
  2. python3 -m vidstab -i temp1.mp4 -o temp1_stab.mp4 - also set num frames for stability using -s 10 and drop edges using -z 10
  3. ffmpeg -i temp1_stab.mp4 -vf "setpts=N/29.97/TB,fps=29.97" -r 29.97 -crf 12 temp1_stab_30fps.mp4
  4. ffmpeg -i temp1_stab_30fps.mp4 -i 1992_Gaeta_Christmas_Eve.mp4 -shortest -c:v copy -map 0:v:0 -map 1:a:0 FINAL.mp4

    • Set resolution and bitrate all at the same time
  • ffmpeg -r 1 -i img%01d.png -vcodec mpeg4 -y movie.mp4
    • fps is defined with the "-r" bit - so "-r 1" would be 1 fps, "-r 30" would be 30, etc.
