animmaker 0.5.0

animmaker creates an unindexed raw AVI from a list or stream of uncompressed Targa files.
animmaker creates an unindexed raw AVI from a list or stream of uncompressed Targa files (the ones generated by POV-Ray are accepted perfectly).

After having a raw AVI file generated by animmaker, you can encode it to DivX with MPlayer, like this:

mencoder foo.avi -o foo2.avi -divx4opts br=800:q=5:key=25

Or if you prefer libavcodec instead of divx4linux and two-pass encoding (enhances the quality/size ratio), you can do it like this:

mencoder foo.avi -o foo2.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=800:vhq:vpass=1
mencoder foo.avi -o foo2.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=800:vhq:vpass=2

Refer to the mencoder documentation to see how you can add audio, use different codecs, tune the compression parameters etc. Note that not all codecs support two pass encoding, which is completely optional anyway.


All input tga files must be the same resolution.
Only uncompressed bgr24/bgr16/bgr15 tga files are accepted.
The resulting avi will not contain index.
Resulting avi may not be bigger than 2 GB.
Only raw audio is accepted, and the soundtrack can only have 1 or 2 channels and can only be 8-bit or 16-bit.

What's New in This Release:

This release adds support for huge files (64-bit offsets), and the AVI OpenDML vprp section in the riffdump program.
Some code cleanup was also done.
