VF Scale option should include -2 to create square pixels

Description

Summary of the bug: FFMPEG has not way to create square pixels output video. using -1 for the scale automatically scales but does not create square pixel video.

So instead of having to create a square pixel video with width 720 by doing this:

-vf scale=720:trunc(720/dar/2)*2

It would be great if FFMPEG can provide an option (like mencoder) to do something like:

-vf scale=720:-2

  • Component changed from undetermined to avfilter
  • Keywords scale added

Please provide a short MPlayer / MEncoder command line and a ffmpeg command line that show the different effects.

Replying to ramitbhalla:

Summary of the bug: FFMPEG has not way to create square pixels output video. using -1 for

setsar=1,scale=iw:iw

what's wrong with this?

the scale automatically scales but does not create square pixel video.

So instead of having to create a square pixel video with width 720 by doing this:

-vf scale=720:trunc(720/dar/2)*2

It would be great if FFMPEG can provide an option (like mencoder) to do something like:

-vf scale=720:-2

I tend to dislike this arbitrary and opaque syntax.

Nothing wrong @saste. I also gave a workaround, but that's the point it's a workaround.
It would be great if there is an more direct way to do it. Espcially since a lot of programs use FFMPEG programtically. (and this can be properly documented)

-1 = automatically calculate height (and it's doesn't take care of odd height pixels which is FRUSTRATING cause it breaks the conversion)

-2 = square pixels and never fails the conversions due to a odd height

  • Resolution set to needs_more_info
  • Status changed from new to closed

Please reopen if you can provide command lines that allow to reproduce the different behaviour of MPlayer and FFmpeg.

I'm attaching the error below with the output.

In addition to the -2 option for which Mencoder creates square pixels there is another option -10 which creates pixels that allow it to be divisible by 16. This is VERY important for quicktime codecs.

I would request 2 options be created for the scale filter:

  1. -2 which creates square pixels
  2. -10 which creates pixels divisible by 16 (for quicktime)

You can change the -2 and -10 to someelse if you'd like, I was just suggested to keep it similar to MEncoder options, but thats your choice, the functionality is more important.

Here is the error output created because of non square pixels with the -1 option:

This all can be done with available filters. I do not see point in adding cryptic aliases.

comment:9 Changed 3 years ago by richardpl

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

Note that scale filter now accepts expressions for w and h so all this mentioned above can be done.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
