Extract Selected Video Frames using FFmpeg

2010-07-24 by Falko Schindler, tagged as structure-from-motion

FFmpeg can easily be used to extract single frames from video data, in my case to create input images from an aerial surveillance video for structure from motion reconstruction.

The following command ffmpeg -ss 00:07:00 -t 00:02:00 -i P1000072.MOV -r 0.1 P1000072/image%3d.jpg
will extract frames
