Hello, I'm wondering if there could please be a preset in order to merge cdg with mp3 to create a video file. Any format video is fine. I saw earlier in the thread a guy got it to work, but I'd like to know how to do it in batch form. I'm pretty unfamiliar with command, but I can try! Thanks for your time.

Hi, you can use stream multiplex tab to achieve this, but batch creating videos from image is not available there. It may be possible in main tab, if the image file is always the same. For example, using the image Piant.jpg, and getting the audio file from the file list:
-r 1/5 -start_number 0 -i "C:\Users\Abel\Pictures\Piant.jpg"Code:
-c:v libx264 -vf fps=5 -c:a aac -b:a 160K
Unfortunately the "image" in this case is words. CDG+MP3 is basically a karaoke song. They have the same name, but that's about as far as that goes. Any other ideas?
You've got it the other way around. In this case, the Karaoke "words" are an image. "CDG" streams are images, timed to the music/audio, and placed into auxilliary sectors multiplexed along with the digital audio data in a CD. Very much like the DVD "sub" subtitles, or similar still image format for Bluray subtitles. It is an image overlay - like how greenscreen works.
The text is converted to images before being put onto the CD. When ripped from the CD and put into an "MP3+G" format, it is not yet converted from cdg pix format, only multiplexed with the MP3 file (the data is appended like an ID3 tag, IIRC).
So, you will need to first extract the CDG data stream from the MP3, then convert it from the arcane CDG format (which is ONLY used for CDG material) into a standard picture format (like JPG, PNG, etc).
From what I have seen of most (paid) apps on the net, they do this by rendering the CDG as raw pixels and encoding the render, rather than interpreting the characters and performing OCR, etc.
A quick look at cdg support in ffmpeg makes me think that it is geared only toward muxing+demuxing with MP3, rather than in decoding/rendering for use as a standard picture sequence format.

Just come across this and it seems to be the answer to my woes in converting a load of ISMV files to MP4.
I am, however a bit dense at figuring things out. Basically all I'm trying to do it output the file into the same location as the original input, while renaming the file to video.mp4.
No files will be overwritten as each ISMV is in a folder on its own.
Could anyone kindly give me a nudge in the right direction? I managed to do a straight conversion by using
ffmpeg -i filename.ismv video.mp4
Hi, you should not have any problem achieving that if you process a single folder and select it as output folder too.
However if you add multiple input folders, for the moment you can't do that, because for relative paths, even checking "Recreate source path" a FFBatch folder will be created wiithin.
[QUOTE=ethanhunt202;2543825]How do I go about altering the output title in that case? I couldn't figure it out yesterday
You can enable "Rename output" and then write what will be added at the end of every input file name to generate the output file name.
Hi Eibol, is there a way that I can add a comment in the ini file so I can store a version of it? I am starting to make other coworkers to use it, so I give them the conf and they just need to update it, but now I've got a problem to know what version I gave them or on what of my machine there is the latest one that I've created.
As always, thanks for your great gui
Hi, there is not configuration versions control in the interface, you would need for the moment to do it manually.
You can add any text, like a comment or a version number, as a new line at the end of the configuration file, provided you don't start it by 'PR:".
The file path isCode:
I'm afraid the workaround I recommended below causes a runtime error, it expects a preset format, so the only way to add version information would be to add a "dirty" preset, stating the version in the name and the parameters, so at the end of the presets lists it would appear something like "Configuration v1.2".
I will look into it in a future release.

Hi, I have implemented in this executable some manual configuration version control, as well as a new button to edit the configuration file inside the application.
You just need to press "Save settings" button once and the 'Version' line will be included at the right place in the configuration file, so you can then use the new edit configuration button to change it, or edit the ini file as you wish.
