Try to run ffmpeg with debug enabled: ffmpeg -v debug ... .This will print (among much other information) the options and values as interpreted by ffmpeg, see the following example:

If I include
,"-v", "debug",
it just stops processing dead. ffmpeg is too fussy. I'm giving up on fancy filters and sticking with the basic slide show.

What I'm trying to find now is how to set 'do not re-encode' for the created videos, I can only find the 'setUseOriginal(true)'

Yours is ffmpeg version N-80343-g645f7c1-tessus, which is some old snapshot.

I am using ffmpeg version 3.3.2. It does exactly what the documentation says: http://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-all.html You may try version 3.3.2 for the Mac: https://evermeet.cx/pub/ffmpeg/

Shit happens: Just because it is in 810-5 does not always mean it exists, section Lessons Learned :-)

There are Mac users digging into ffmpeg:

https://superuser.com/questions/851033/ffmpeg-debug-verbosity

https://superuser.com/questions/326629/how-can-i-make-ffmpeg-be-quieter-less-verbose

Different behavior may result from sloppy build. While the latter of the above says:

"Even with -loglevel panic, for me it's only reducing output a little - it still prints version information, stream mapping, configuration options, (and even progress information!).... any ideas?"

ffmpeg works as advertised on my box :
karl@erlangen:~/RobM> ffmpeg -loglevel panic
karl@erlangen:~/RobM> 


For verification you may open a shell window on your machine and try running exactly the following two commands:

ffmpeg -loglevel debug

ffmpeg -v debug

It works on my Mac too, as long as it is run from the terminal command line.

I have decided to leave the code as is, no special effects, for several reasons. The main one being that the pattern matching method will include images set by jAlbum as excluded and exclude images of other formats like PNG.

I know, in theory, that I could overcome those issues by first going through all folders and writing a text file that lists all of the images to be used. In practice though it turns out that ffmpeg yet again complains about unsafe file paths - anything with a space. I will post my final version with a note about its limitations as it might be of use to some.

Lessons Learned: ffmpeg > Java = dark arts :-)

Actually it's Java > ffmpeg and I think Runtime.getRuntime().exec(new String[]{ffmpegFolder + "/bin/ffmpeg", "-framerate", ...}) is a robust method of invocation. In case I'll have my own .bsh I will try that too.

As well as the above mentioned problems there is also one of image ordering. The current method adds the images in alphabetical order, not as organised by jAlbum. That is another reason for needing to change to writing and reading from a file list document - writing a file might be easier than parsing the album files.txt file.

Just to close off this thread, I have posted the final version of my tool here.
Renamed it to 'images to video'.
Added root folder processing.
Sets the videos to 'Do not re-encode'.

In BeanShell you can get the path to the ffmpeg executable like this:
setAccessible(true);
VideoProcessor vp = engine.getVideoProcessor();
File exe = vp.getExecutable();
(The getExecutable() call is not official, that's why you need that setAccessible(true) call first)

Thanks, better than getting the config, I'll update my code later today.

If nothing else this excercise might encourage users to make their own slide show videos and include them in their albums.

I tried that and when I looked at the file "slideshow_files.txt" it was empty. Nevertheless I altered my batch file to create a MP4 out of a "slideshow_files.txt" and realized that the file size was 1 KB, looked into the file and saw some lines. Yeah!

I still had same errors in my script file, corrected them, then the "slideshow_files.txt" was empty again. Yes, that sound very strange. So I deleted my whole output folder, create my small album (JA 13.10, Turtle), run the "images to video.bsh" and the "slideshow_files.txt" was empty. What ever I tried again, the file is still empty.

I'll give that a try tomorrow again.

Try it with the 'Sample Portfolio project', there is nothing in that that could cause a problem.

I have made further changes, attached is the new file.

You can make an album wide slideshow, slideshows for each folder or both. In the appropriate name fields leaving it empty stops that slideshow type from being made.

There is also an option to overwrite, or not, existing slideshow videos, in the event of a new folder of images being added you won't need to remake all of the videos now.

If folders (except the root for the album slideshow) don't have any images they are bypassed and the text files are not created.

I have tried it on several projects with several skins and it always works, you have to wait for it to finish, it can take a while - it needs some progress feedback.

One caveat, images must be of the same format, you can't mix jpg and png for example - ffmpeg expects the same image type.

It seems that I'm a hopeless case. I tried your latest bsh file with the JA sample album. I created the album with <F9> and then opened "Tools|External tools|images to video". The message "MP4 slideshows created" appeared in a fraction of a second. I then watched the whole output folders, no MP4 file at all, but several "slideshow_files.txt" files. Context e. g.

file 'C:\Users\MDrück\Documents\My Albums\Sample Portfolio\Travel/Stockholm.jpg'
duration 5
file 'C:\Users\MDrück\Documents\My Albums\Sample Portfolio\Travel/Cecina.jpg'
duration 5
file 'C:\Users\MDrück\Documents\My Albums\Sample Portfolio\Travel/Trieste.jpg'

file 'C:\Users\MDrück\Documents\My Albums\Sample Portfolio\Travel/Toscana.jpg'

file 'C:\Users\MDrück\Documents\My Albums\Sample Portfolio\Travel/Pisa.jpg'

I do have a file "C:\Users\MDrück\AppData\Roaming\jAlbum\bin\ffmpeg.exe" dated 06/24/2017, (36,3 MB (38 119 936 byte)), so it should be fine to start the ffmpeg.exe for the script.

Please tell me that I'm doing something terribly wrong. ;-)
