Scaling and hstacking at the same time?

Hello

I've got an hstack operation running fine, which takes two 1024x576 source files and puts them side-by-side into a single output file, using these parameters:
-i "[source 1]" -i "[source 2]" -filter_complex hstack -map 1:a -b:v 6000k -s 2048x576 -y "[output file]"

However a situation has arisen where one or both of the source files might not be 1024x576, and will need to be scaled prior to the hstack.

Is there a way I can apply extra parameters that will cause the source(s) to be scaled to a specific size and then hstacked as part of a single FFmpeg operation? Or do I need to rescale the video to a separate file first, then hstack the result?

I think I know the individual parameters I'm trying to set, but my attempts to get the grammar of it correct have been fruitless, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

you can do both, just follow general guidelines for filtering within filter_complex - source mapping for example:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/267698/ ... er-complex

i.e.

Code: Select all

-i source1 -i source2 -filter_complex "[0:v]scale=xxxxxx,pad=xxxxxx[vout1];[1:v]scale=xxxxxx,pad=xxxxxx[vout2];[vout1][vout2]hstack[out]
