       blind-split - Split a video, by frame, into multiple videos

       blind-split [-L]	(file (end-point | 'end')) ...

       blind-split  reads  a video from	stdin and splits into multiple videos.
       Starting	from the first frame in	stdin, it write	a video	to  the	 first
       specified  file	until  the  first specified end-point number of	frames
       have been written.  blind-split the proceeds  to	 write	the  following
       frames to the next specified file until a total of end-point frames has
       been written (that is, including	all previous videos), where  end-point
       is  the	associated  end-point.	If 'end' is used instead of end-point,
       blind-split will	proceed	until the end of the input video. If you  want
       to discard a section of the video, you can specify the file /dev/null.

       All specified end-points, including 'end' must be in strictly ascending

       The specified files may be of any  type,	 except	 directory,  including
       pipes  and  FIFO:s. Indeed you probably want all	of the to be pipes, as
       saving a	raw video to disc will probably	fill your disc almost  immedi-
       ately.  If you are levering the power of	make(1)	to only	rerended parts
       you have	changes, you can pipe the  videos  into	 blind-to-video(1)  to
       compress	them. If you're	shall does not support process substitution or
       creating	anonymous pipes, you can uses FIFO:s. If you try to truncate a
       FIFO,  it  will	be flushed, if this is done after all writes have been
       done, the process reading from the FIFO will think that there no	longer
       are  any	processes that have it open for	writing, assuming it, like all
       blind tools, have been written to treat the file	as any a regular  file
       (which is usually have pipes are	also treated).

       -L     Ignore  the  number  of  frames specified	in the videos head and
	      read until the end or the	last desired  frame  is	 reached.   If
	      this  option  is	used in	combination with 'end',	the last video
	      will have	an incorrect frame count written in its	head.  Depend-
	      ing  on  what  tools  you	will being using, you may need to save
	      that video into a	regular	file and rewrite its head with	blind-

       blind(7),  blind-from-video(1), blind-to-video(1), blind-cut(1),	blind-
       concat(1), blind-rewrite-head(1)
