Seems that using apng format works:

% ffmpeg -v error -i sunglasses.png /tmp/sunglasses.png
% ffmpeg -v error -i sunglasses.png -f apng /tmp/sunglasses    
% diff /tmp/sunglasses.png /tmp/sunglasses
% echo $?

But I get this warning:

[apng @ 0x5563feb241c0] Only a single frame so saving as a normal PNG.

The format is image2, png is the codec:

ffmpeg ... -f image2 -c png /tmp/sunglasses

@Cigares It makes sense now. It is however confusing that image2 is specified as format when in fact it's a muxer.

comment:5 by Gyan, 12 months ago

There's both an image2 demuxer and a muxer.
