I’m pleased to announce that the long-awaited remix album is now in … post-production? Something like that. Will be out soon, hopefully. In the meantime, I’ve racked up a bucketload of additional remixes, so I’ll be releasing a bunch of them shortly.
Also, I’ve finally figured out how to turn an audio file, a text description, and a background image into a video on the command line. Yay! No more wasting 15 minutes struggling through a GUI to do something that’s not actually video editing at all. This process took only 5 seconds when I ran it on the command line. And the general idea could also be applied to dubbing a PV with an audio file.
Here’s what I did using Ubuntu 8.04 and the ffmpeg and convert utilities. Configure as you wish; your system may vary.
% convert -font helvetica -fill white -pointsize 20 -draw "text 6,20 'Title'" -pointsize 12 -draw "text 6,48 'Artist'" background.jpg output.jpg
% ffmpeg -loop_input -shortest -f image2 -i output.jpg -i audio.mp3 -ab 192kbps -y outputvideo.mpg
