    Video splicing advice?

    Posted by

    Okay, so I have my 2500 still files ready to make a timelapse video, but I’m not sure how to splice them together.  Any software I should use? I have a mac, but I also have Windows XP, so anything but linux should be okay.

    Also, I have seperate captures for screen 1 and screen 2. Is there any way to splice the two videos together horizontally after I convert them?

      ffmpeg works well, on any of those OS’s

      Is there any guide as to how to use ffmpeg? I took at look at ffmpegx, the mac version, but there wasn’t any indication of it being able to accept still frames as input source.

      I think you can just do something like this:
      ffmpeg -i /tmp/screencap%d.jpg /tmp/out.mpg
