in my precious companies there always was some in-house tool that converts all our pretty pixels to all kinds of formats. From images to video and the other way round. exr, tif, jpg, mp4, gif etc.
I've already seen and used the your two current ffmpeg TOPs which work great. But every now and then I would like to have more options. Quality, annotations, gifs, frameranges, startframe. I can do this by looking up the correct flags on the documentation, but it gets overwhelming quite fast evertime and I end up just throwing the towel most of the time.
Now to my RFE to be discussed:
Instead of only having combining and extracting images as ffmpeg features within TOPs, it would be great if SideFX would ship a whole ffmpeg utility with all kinds of flags exposed to the user on the interface.
The main things being:
From/To images/video; formats; options.
This could be really helpful for studios looking at PDG as their core pipeline tool, as image conversion is happening in so many places.
Before subitting this RFE I wanted to discuss this with a wider audience than just colleagues/friends.
