Converting 16 bit SGI to 8 bit RGB
Posted: Wed Apr 24, 2019 9:52 pm
I'm converting 2160p SGI files that I got from vqeg.its.blddoc.gov into an RGB24 AVI video sequence using the following command:
The AVI file looks good when I play it with mpv, but I'm curious as to how FFMPEG makes the 16 bits per color channel or 48 bits per pixel to 8 bits per color channel or 24 bits per pixel.
Code: Select all
ffmpeg -start_number 07111 -r 50 -vsync 0 -i %%5d.sgi -vcodec rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb24 -r 50 -y D:\SVT_CrowdRun_3840x2160p_60_8b_RGB_500.avi
