Showing revision 1
The imlist import module takes as input a list of images. It should support any image format that your installed ImageMagick can handle.

The images must all be the same size. For optimal results, the images' dimensions should be divisible by 16. In other words, the result of 640x480 input is well defined, the result of 509x327 input is not.

transcode cannot currently autodetect the size of the images in the list, so that will need to be given with the -g switch.

The imlist module only works in RGB video mode, so --use_rgb is required.

In this example, the image files are in a directory named jpg. Make a list of files, verify the size, and run transcode.

  puff:~/tmp/tctest% find jpg -type f | sort > list
  puff:~/tmp/tctest% tcprobe -i `head -n 1 list`
  [tcprobe] JPEG image
  [tcprobe] summary for jpg/file.000018.jpg, (*) = not default, 0 = not detected
  import frame size: -g 320x240 [720x576] (*)
