SMIL Utils - A collection of utilities based on kino's SMIL project
format and supported file formats (Raw DV, DV AVI 1 and 2 and libquick-
time DV encoded MOV).
image2raw(1), ppm2raw(1), raw2dv(1), raw2image(1), raw2webcam(1),
raw2yuv(1), rawmultiply(1), smil2raw(1), smil2wav(1), smil2yuv(1),
All tools support the --help switch to obtain a brief usage descrip-
SMIL Utils provide a wide variety of tools for import and export func-
tionality to and from Digital Video formats.
INPUT NAMING CONVENTIONS
image* tools take image files on the command line. Most formats are
ppm* tools take ppm pipes as stdin.
raw* tools take Raw DV as input on stdin.
raw2* tools convert the incoming Raw DV to something else.
smil2* tools take kino smil projects or DV encoded files as command
line input and export to another format.
xwd2* is a silly throw away bit of nonsense :-).
OUTPUT NAMING CONVENTIONS
*2raw tools generate Raw DV on stdout.
*2yuv tools generate YUV4MJPEG output on stdout.
*2wav tools generate WAV files on stdout or in the file you specify.
Note that it is not possible to correctly fixate a wav when is written
to stdout and as a result, some tools may not be able to correctly han-
dle the resultant file - if that's the case, specify a file name
according to the conventions of the tool.
