Capturing frame time

Postby stevemof » Fri Mar 24, 2017 1:06 pm

I am using the following command line to split a mov file into bitmaps where 475 is the start time in seconds and 60 is the duration.

ffmpeg -ss 475 -i CCTV.mov -t 60 CCTV-%03d.bmp

I end up with an array of bitmaps with a name like CCTV001.bmp, CCTV002.bmp etc.


What I really need is for each bitmap to be named - not with a three digit number - but with the time the frame was captured. That could be either the time stamp from the frame or even seconds from the start of the sample or the entire video.

Anything which I can use to get the time each video frame was captured.

Thanks in advance.
