Merge into one file

Post by gor » Mon Dec 28, 2015 1:01 pm

Is it possible to "merge intro one file"?
Very useful for Panasonic P2 clips.

FFAStrans does exactly this when using the P2 monitor. You can just add a delivery folder after the monitor and you'll have a merged mxf-file. Or did you want something else?

At this moment (v0.6.3 downloaded, v0.6.2 displayed in Help > About), if you put Panasonic P2 as monitor and connect it directly to Folder (as a Delivers), outputted files are MXF video with audio in the same file, same number of files as in P2 structure.
My scenario is to create one single AVI or MOV DV file (re-wrapped only if is possible - without re-encoding) with stereo audio (2.0) concatenated from P2 structure.

Ok, so if I undrstand you correctly; you want to merge ALL the different clips/takes/shots on the P2 card into one single file?

Ok, that's currently not possible but I'll look into it.

Hey, I would also like such a feature. Would be very useful :)

If I am not mistaken, isn't there currently a way to run a ffmpeg command to do as such or similar?

Edit: yes it does exist:

Yes, I am aware of the "concatenate"-functions in ffmpeg and I use them extensively. I promised to look into it over a year ago but I have not had focus on that yet, sorry, but I will hopefully have it ready for a 0.8.x release.
