Description

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.ffmpeg.user/43291
I will attach a pal8 png sample that contains transparency, the overlay filter assumes an opaque image.

$ ffmpeg -i tests/lena.pnm -i pal8_alpha.png -filter_complex overlay out.png

The following works as expected:

$ ffmpeg -i tests/lena.pnm -i rgba_alpha.png -filter_complex overlay out.png

  • Component changed from avfilter to swscale
  • Keywords overlay removed
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Summary changed from overlay filter does not work with pal8 transparency to Transparency gets lost on conversion from pal8 to yuva*

I incorrectly assumed the overlay filter would accept pal8 as input, the real problem is that the transparency gets lost on conversion from pal8 to yuva*.

$ /ffmpeg -i pal8_alpha.png -pix_fmt yuva420p -vcodec ffv1 out.avi
