ffmpeg: Create a video from time lapse photos

This article was published 3 years ago. Due to the rapidly evolving world of technology, some concepts may no longer be applicable.

I accidentally recorded a time lapse photo by photo instead of as a video on my GoPro.

If you’ve done the same, this is the command you need to stitch it all together (with colour profile flags stolen from the internet)

ffmpeg -pattern_type glob -i "*.JPG" -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p output.mp4
