I've been using Telestream Vantage for the couple of years and wanted to see what I could do using FFMPEG, so started to look at FFAStrans.
I've started by creating a 'simple workflow' with to folder monitors - one looking at a folder called "16x9" and the other looking at a folder called "4x3", with each folder then populating a variable.
I then have a pair of conditional processors, which check the value of the variable, with each connected to a custom ffmpeg processor, with fixed scale filters to create either a 4x3 or 16x9 dimensioned image (640x360 vs 640x480). I'll try and update with a screengrab of the workflow, but my FFAStrans test machine does not have internet access.
Two questions / observations:
- I seem to get 'conditional errors' in my job status window when the condition is not met, so when 4x3=16x9. How do I set these like an 'ignore' action in Vantage?
- Even though I am specifying the width and height in the ffmpeg custom command line, the files are still reading 16:9 display aspect in MediaInfo. Is this being set automatically, and if so, how do I disable it.
