NAME
       fmfconv -- Fuse Movie File converter

SYNOPSIS
       fmfconv [options] [infile [outfile [soundfile]]]

DESCRIPTION
       fmfconv is a Fuse Movie File converter. It can read .fmf	files produced
       by Fuse ZX Spectrum emulator and	write audio files, video files or  se-
       quences	of  images in a	variety	of popular formats. It can also	stream
       data to external	tools through a	pipe, so you  can  get	virtually  any
       possible	format (see EXAMPLES).

       fmfconv	has  built-in  support for AIFF, AU and	WAV sound formats, PPM
       and SCR image formats, AVI and YUV4MPEG2	video  formats.	 Supports  PNG
       and  JPEG/MJPEG	formats	internally if libpng and libjpeg are available
       respectively.

OPTIONS
   General options:
       -h
       --help
	      Give brief usage help, listing available options.

       --info
	      Scan input file(s) and print information.

       -i filename
       --input filename
	      Input file.

       -o filename
       --output	filename
	      Output file.

       -y
       --overwrite
	      Force overwrite of existing output file(s).

       -g form
       --progress form
	      Show progress, where `form' is one of  `%',  `bar',  `frame'  or
	      `time'. frame and	time are similar to bar	and show movie seconds
	      or frame number as well.

       -q
       --quiet
	      Decrease the verbosity level by one.

       -v
       --verbose
	      Increase the verbosity level by one.

       -V
       --version
	      Print the	version	number and exit.

   Audio options:
       --aifc
	      Force AIFF-C output if sound format is AIFF.

       -m
       --aiff
	      Save sound to Apple Computer audio (aiff/aiff-c) file.

       -u
       --au
	      Save sound to Sun	Audio (au) file.

       --mono
	      Convert sound to mono (by	default	sound is converted to stereo).

       --raw-sound
	      Do not convert sound to 16-bit signed PCM	and  STEREO  or	 MONO.
	      This  is	an  advanced  option. If stereo/mono or	audio encoding
	      change through `fmf' file, your sound will be crappy.

       -s filename
       --sound filename
	      Output sound file.

       --sound-only
	      Process only the sound from an `fmf' file.

       -E rate
       --srate rate
	      Resample audio to	`rate' sampling	rate where `rate' is `cd'  for
	      44100 Hz	or  `dat' for 48000 Hz or a number (`cd' and `dat' set
	      `stereo' as well).

       -w
       --wav
	      Save sound to Waveform Audio (wav) file.

   Video/image options:
       --avi
	      Save video as AVI	format with built-in AVI encoder.  If  fmfconv
	      supports	jpeg files, encode video as M-JPEG and audio as	S16_LE
	      PCM. If output is	not a file (stdout or redirected) then fmfconv
	      encode  video  as	uncompressed BGR24 DIB frames (see --avi-mjpeg
	      and --avi-uncompr).

       -f timing
       --frate timing
	      Set output frame rate. `timing' is `pal',	`ntsc',	`movie'	 or  a
	      number with maximum 3 digit after	decimal	point, or a #/#	(e.g.:
	      -f 29.97 or -f 30000/1001).
	      For video	output formats (AVI/MJPEG/YUV4MPEG2) fmfconv set frame
	      rate  to	25  fps	(PAL timing). If you want to keep the original
	      frame rate use `raw' timing.

       -C cut
       --out-cut cut
	      Leave   out   the	  comma	  delimited   `cut'    ranges	 e.g.:
	      100-200,300,500,1:11-2:22	 cut  the frames 100-200, 300, 500 and
	      frames from 1 min	11 sec to 2 min	22 sec (in  the	 given	timing
	      see: -f/--frate).

       -P
       --ppm
	      Save video as PPM	screenshots.

       -S
       --scr
	      Save video as SCR	screenshots.

       -Y
       --yuv
	      Save video as yuv4mpeg2.

       --yuv-format frm
	      Set  yuv4mpeg2 file frame	format to `frm', where `frm' is	one of
	      `444', `422', `420j', `420m', `420' or `410'.

   The following options are available when PNG	files are supported:
       --greyscale
	      Save greyscale images.

       -G
       --png
	      Save video frames	as PNG screenshots.

       --png-compress level
	      Set compression level from  a  range  0-9,  or  `none',  `fast',
	      `best'.

       --progressive
	      Save progressive (interlaced) PNG	files.

   The following options are available when JPEG files are supported:
       --avi-mjpeg
	      Force the	use of M-JPEG AVI frames (lossy).

       --avi-uncompr
	      Force the	use of uncompressed BGR24 AVI frames. This format does
	      not produce compression artifacts	but the	file size  is  bigger.
	      It is a good choice if you want to process the video with	an ex-
	      ternal tool.

       --greyscale
	      Save greyscale images or convert video frames.

       -J
       --jpeg
	      Save video frames	as JPEG	screenshots.

       --jpeg-fast
	      Use faster, less accurate	integer	method for DCT compression.

       --jpeg-float
	      Use floating-point method	for DCT	compression.

       --jpeg-optimize
	      Compute optimal Huffman coding tables for	the image.

       -Q
       --jpeg-quality q
	      Set jpeg quality from a range 0-100.

       --jpeg-smooth factor
	      Set jpeg smoothing factor	from a range 0-100.

       -M
       --mjpeg
	      Save video as raw	M-JPEG file (abbreviated JPEG stream).

       --progressive
	      Save progressive (interlaced) JPEG files.

EXAMPLES
       Some of the following examples use ffmpeg(1) as an  external  tool  for
       doing  the  final conversion. In	some distributions avconv(1) is	avail-
       able, which accepts the same parameters.

       Convert FMF to AVI:

	      fmfconv input.fmf	output.avi

       Convert FMF to a	mpeg video with	quality	equivalent to YouTube:

	      fmfconv input.fmf	| ffmpeg -i - -vf scale=480:360	-r 25
		      -codec:v h264 -codec:a aac -f mp4	-b:a 128k
		      -b:v 600k	-pix_fmt yuv420p -strict -2 output.mp4

       Convert FMF to compact lossless 720p:

	      fmfconv --raw-sound input.fmf | ffmpeg -i	- -i palette.png
		      -filter_complex
		      "scale=960:720:flags=neighbor [x]; [x][1:v] paletteuse"
		      -c:a flac	-c:v zmbv -compression_level:a 12 output.mkv

       Convert FMF to compact lossless 1080p:

	      fmfconv input.fmf	| ffmpeg -i - -vf palettegen palette.png
	      fmfconv --raw-sound input.fmf | ffmpeg -i	- -i palette.png
		      -filter_complex
		      "crop=288:216,scale=1440:1080:flags=neighbor
			    [x]; [x][1:v] paletteuse"
		      -c:a flac	-c:v zmbv -compression_level:a 12 output.mkv

       Convert FMF to a	DVD video format:

	      fmfconv input.fmf	| ffmpeg -i - -aspect 4:3 -target pal-dvd
		      output.vob

       Convert FMF to SVCD video format:

	      fmfconv input.fmf	| ffmpeg -i - -aspect 4:3 -target pal-svcd
		      output.mpg

       Convert FMF to iPod video format:

	      fmfconv input.fmf	| ffmpeg -i - -vf scale=320:240	-r 30
		      -codec:v h264 -codec:a aac -f ipod -ar 44100 -b:a	128k
		      -b:v 256k	-pix_fmt yuv420p -strict -2 output.m4v

       Convert FMF to animated GIF (25 fps) using ImageMagick:

	      fmfconv -f 25 input.fmf tmp.png
	      convert -delay 4 -loop 0 -layers removeDups -layers Optimize
		      tmp*.png output.gif

       Extract audio (mono) from a FMF file:

	      fmfconv --sound-only --mono input.fmf output.wav
