General: Converting Time Lapse Pictures to Video

In command line use the following command unless a variation is provided on this page for a specific use case:

ffmpeg -r 25 -pattern_type glob -i '*.jpg' -c:v mjpeg -q:v 2 filename.avi

This converts individual pictures into a video. In Terminal, navigate to the directory with your pictures - and run the ffmpeg command there. The .avi file will be generated in your working pictures directory.

Note: do not change the zoom setting on your camera during the time lapse, or your video will not be created properly. Ffmpeg works on sequences with the same zoom settings. If the zoom setting is changed during the picture taking time - you must run ffmpeg on batches - where every picture in the batch has the same zoom settings.
