Description Joel Yliluoma 2003-09-11 09:55:00 UTC
animmaker is a program for creating AVI files. The input may be any number of
uncompressed TGA files or a stream of TGA files. Raw audio also supported.
Useful for both endusers and as a backend for programs that wish to create AVI

Seems to work well, however there is a new version out and Gentoo custom CFLAGS
are introduced now.

Hmm, this is the RESOLVE I hate to use the most but.. even the homepage lists that MPlayer's mencoder can use the same thing (if not better) and most of it recommends using mencoder externally to get the desired results.  As far as size and what not, if you really wanted this in MPlayer, you could probably USE="-* tag encode" and get about the same result.
Comment 4 Joel Yliluoma 2004-12-25 07:34:29 UTC
MEncoder however can not create AVI files from an undetermined number of TGA files. The homepage shows an example "cat *.tga | animmaker", but the "cat" could be substituted with user's own program which creates a continuous stream with no end. That's not possible with MEncoder. MEncoder needs to know beforehand exactly how many frames there are.
