Video filter overlay does not preserve alpha

Description

Hi,

I think there might be a bug in ffmpeg/video filter.

If I have a clip with alpha and apply a filter, the alpha goes away. It used to be preserved until a couple of months ago.

Please find zip with test files attached:
mptpmbp:Desktop ehsmeng$ unzip -t bug.zip
Archive: bug.zip

testing: frameFromWm1.png OK
testing: frameNoWm1.png OK
testing: movie.mov OK
testing: watermark.png OK
testing: withWm.mov OK
testing: withoutWm.mov OK

No errors detected in compressed data of bug.zip.

Thanks,
Marcus

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by saste

  • Analyzed by developer set
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open

Partially fixed by the addition of the rgb option in overlay.

By setting rgb=1 alpha information is preserved, the problem that it still doesn't work with YUV input, so overlay by default won't preserve alpha, that's why I'm keeping the ticket open.

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

Should be fixed in:

    lavfi/overlay: enable yuva420p as overlay background
    
    Same calculation as for RGBA etc to create unpremultiplied output.
    Useful for creating an intermediate "Mix/Effects bank", in vision mixer
    (switcher) terminology.
    
    Example command:
    
    ffmpeg -i input.mov -vf
    "[in]scale=iw:ih:interl=1,format=yuv420p[bg];movie=BBC_blocks_watermark.png,scale=iw:ih:interl=1,format=yuva420p[dog];movie=Kickabout_strap.mov,sc
    -b:v 3M -an output.mov
    
    Fix trac ticket #549.
