Convert png sequence to Quicktime ProRes 422.
I'm trying to convert an image sequence of .png's into a Quicktime movie in ProRes 422 format on Linux. I am submitting this to a film festival and it is crucial that it be in EXACTLY this format. I have been using ffmpeg like so (note the film is 10 frames per second):
I've tried various options for NUMBER following -profile:v, then checked the resulting video codec by using the "Properties" function in Linux's totem media player. Here are the results I get:
0 = Apple ProRes Proxy
1 = Apple ProRes LT
2 = Apple ProRes
3 = Apple ProRes HQ
Are any of these ProRes 422? I've already submitted option 3, Apple ProRes HQ, and the festival is not yet sure they can accept it. Is there something else I should be doing?
The default encoder reports only supporting YUV 4:2:2 10-bit output, so it should be that. Run
Thank you very much for the quick response. To confirm, you're saying all of the movies created from the above commands should indeed be in ProRes422 format? Here is the output of ffprobe for two of the resulting movies. Note that in both cases it says encoder : Lavc56.60.100 prores.
Using -profile:v 2:
Using -profile:v 3:
Yeah. The pixel format is identified by the string yuv422p10le which is YUV 4:2:2 (planar, 10 bits per channel stored in little-endian order).
Thank you very much for your help!
