Hi blenderhead, here’s a little out of topic “script” for windows user, it’s non blender but video related, and hopefully it could save some times to other users !
the tool allows you to make a quick and efficient h264 conversion directly through windows environment !
I wrote it because i always use masters version (image sequence then dnxh, qt animation or prores) and they are unsendable to client due to their size, so here it is, just select them in windows file explorer, right click and boum !
This piece of code relies entirely on the great ffmpeg library (as blender does) and i know you can do that through blender gui, but when using different pieces of software, and dealing with several videos, this tool could be handy !
Here’s QConvert v0.1
and the Github page for more informations !
and the roadmap :
- image sequence : by right clicking on a file, you can tell qconvert via the menu it’s part of an image sequence and it will collect them through the conversion
- support for extra encoding : extend abilities to dnxhd hr, prores, and probably quicktime animation
- preset support for these formats (write your own preset, and find them in the right-click menu)
Hope this isn’t too out-of-topic, feel free to ask and criticize as usual !
