I use Apple compressor from the command line to generate video clips from sequences of images. Here


it looks like the command line command allows for control of the framerate of the output movie, but I can't get things to work. Does anyone know how to do this?

  • Are you refering to <file>[?frameRate=<frame rate>|?audio=<file>|?frameRate=<frame rate>\&audio=<file>]?

  • @nohillside Yes, exactly

  • I read this as filename.suffix?framerate=25. What exactly have you tried already?

  • @nohillside The input is a directory containing the images. So I tried ... path_to_directory/?frameRate=25 as well as path_to_directory/ ?frameRate=25. Both do not work.

Compressor -jobpath file:///path_to_png_directory?frameRate=60

does the trick.
