artbook from movie file script


I would like to share a script that I wrote inspired by this tutorial:

The script generates an Artbook PDF capturing stills from a video file. Very useful to study composition…

Here is a PDF generated with the script:

The command to generate the example PDF was:

$ ./ “The Art Of
Big Buck Bunny”

You can download the script here:

The script is for linux. Porting to Windows or MacOs must be easy.


EDIT: Some fixes for errors with more that 10 pages. Pastebin URL updated with new version.
