Files required for all system: javacv.jar , javacpp.jar , opencv.jar , ffmpeg.jar
It also supports composite image, overlay, and virtual stack (especially useful when processing huge image stack).
It is similar to the plugins: QuickTime Movie Writer, and AVI Writer , but works on ImageJ running 64-bit Java, without the 31 characters filename limit and provides further choices of video codec and container.
The core encoding functions are provided by ffmpeg and OpenCV, and bridged with ImageJ via javacv.
Currently only MPEG4 (MPEG-4 part 2), FLV (Flash Video (FLV) / Sorenson Spark / Sorenson H.263), and WMV (Windows Media Video 7) codecs as well as uncompressed rawvideo are implemented. With ffmpeg, it is possible to implement more codecs if required.
SaveAsMovie_.jar into ImageJ's plugins folder.
2. Put the javacv.jar , javacpp.jar , opencv.jar , ffmpeg.jar into ImageJ's plugins folder.
3. Depending on your system architecture, put the corresponding files into ImageJ's plugins folder:
-About the video quality option, it is basically determined by the bitrate. If the preset doesn't give satisfactory quality, you can try to select the custom option and put in desired bitrate for video encoding (the higher the better qualty).
-For image stack less than 100 frames, H.264 might not work correctly.
#2012/07/17: Add low memory usage option
#2012/06/17: Add experimental H264 codec support (however, user have to install FFmpeg with libx264 support. )
