### another animation

i'm doing another animation in luxrender!

it will have the three colored spheres and a rotating diamond.
the 250 frames will be rendered to about 200 s/p.
but i'll be doing an intermediate 20 s/p version.

a question, does anyone know a good (command line) option for ubuntu 64-bit to stitch the 250 png files into a 10 sec video in .webm format?
i've been using:
Code: Select all
mencoder mf://*.png -mf w=1280:h=720:fps=25:type=png -ovc raw -oac copy -o spheres.avi

and than converting it to .webm with pitivi.

edit: the diamond uses "diamond" by giuliojiang from the luxrender materials database.

edit2:Video!

Not using any *nix myself, I can't help, but I've a question kinda similar. If I'm using Blender (whatever the latest one is) and the latest Lux weekly, how would I go about getting all the frames of an animation to one smooth clip?

Switch to the Video Sequence Editor in Blender (I do this on a clean scene) Click: Add > Image
Then browse to all your images, select them, and before you load, set the start frame to 1 (On the lower left).
Then change the resolution, output options etc as you would a normal render (correct start/finish frames, resolution, video format) and hit 'render animation'

but blender can't encode to .webm (vp8)
