then set IN/OUT with old Quicktime and save again

slice movie into pngs, 320 width, auto height, framerate 10

mkdir output ffmpeg -i -r 10 output/ffout%3d.png (fullsize!) ffmpeg -i -vf scale=800:-1 -r 10 output/ffout%3d.png

image magick to create the final gif

convert -delay 8 -loop 0 -layers Optimize output/ffout*.png output/animation2.gif -------

video streams

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -map 0 -map_metadata 0:5:0 -c copy output.mp4
