       webpmux - create	animated WebP files from non-animated WebP images, ex-
       tract frames from animated WebP images, and  manage  XMP/EXIF  metadata
       and ICC profile.

       This manual page	documents the webpmux command.

       webpmux can be used to create/extract from animated WebP	files, as well
       as to add/extract/strip XMP/EXIF	metadata and ICC profile.  If a	single
       file  name (not starting	with the character '-')	is supplied as the ar-
       gument, the command line	arguments are  actually	 tokenized  from  this
       file.   This  allows  for easy scripting	or using large number of argu-

   GET_OPTIONS (-get):
       icc    Get ICC profile.

       exif   Get EXIF metadata.

       xmp    Get XMP metadata.

       frame n
	      Get nth frame from an animated image. (n = 0 has a special mean-
	      ing: last	frame).

   SET_OPTIONS (-set)
       icc file.icc
	      Set ICC profile.

       Where: 'file.icc' contains the ICC profile to be	set.

       exif file.exif
	      Set EXIF metadata.

       Where: 'file.exif' contains the EXIF metadata to	be set.

       xmp file.xmp
	      Set XMP metadata.

       Where: 'file.xmp' contains the XMP metadata to be set.

   STRIP_OPTIONS (-strip)
       icc    Strip ICC	profile.

       exif   Strip EXIF metadata.

       xmp    Strip XMP	metadata.

   DURATION_OPTIONS (-duration)
       Amend  the  duration  of	 a specific interval of	frames.	This option is
       only effective on animated WebP and has no  effect  on  a  single-frame

	      duration	is  the	 duration  for	the  interval  in milliseconds
	      (mandatory).  Must be non-negative.
	      start is the starting frame index	of the interval	(optional).
	      end is the ending	frame index (inclusive)	of the	interval  (op-

       The three typical usages	of this	option are:
	      -duration	d
		   set the duration to 'd' for the whole animation.
	      -duration	d,f
		   set the duration of frame 'f' to 'd'.
	      -duration	d,start,end
		   set the duration to 'd' for the whole [start,end] interval.

	      Note  that  the frames outside of	the [start, end] interval will
	      remain untouched.
	      The 'end'	value '0' has the special meaning 'last	frame  of  the

	      frame indexing starts at '1'.

   FRAME_OPTIONS (-frame)
       Create an animated WebP file from multiple (non-animated) WebP images.

       file_i +di[+xi+yi[+mi[bi]]]
	      Where: 'file_i' is the i'th frame	(WebP format), 'xi','yi' spec-
	      ify the image offset for this frame, 'di'	is the pause  duration
	      before  next frame, 'mi' is the dispose method for this frame (0
	      for NONE or 1 for	BACKGROUND) and	'bi' is	 the  blending	method
	      for this frame (+b for BLEND or -b for NO_BLEND).	 Argument 'bi'
	      can be omitted and will default to +b (BLEND).  Also,  'mi'  can
	      be omitted if 'bi' is omitted and	will default to	0 (NONE).  Fi-
	      nally, if	'mi' and 'bi' are omitted then 'xi' and	 'yi'  can  be
	      omitted and will default to +0+0.

       -loop n
	      Loop the frames n	number of times. 0 indicates the frames	should
	      loop forever.  Valid range is 0  to  65535  [Default:  0	(infi-

       -bgcolor	A,R,G,B
	      Background color of the canvas.
	      where:  'A', 'R',	'G' and	'B' are	integers in the	range 0	to 255
	      specifying the Alpha, Red, Green and Blue	component  values  re-
	      spectively [Default: 255,255,255,255].

       Input file in WebP format.

   OUTPUT (-o)
       Output file in WebP format.

       The  nature  of EXIF, XMP and ICC data is not checked and is assumed to
       be valid.

       Add ICC profile:
       webpmux -set icc	image_profile.icc in.webp -o icc_container.webp

       Extract ICC profile:
       webpmux -get icc	icc_container.webp -o image_profile.icc

       Strip ICC profile:
       webpmux -strip icc icc_container.webp -o	without_icc.webp

       Add XMP metadata:
       webpmux -set xmp	image_metadata.xmp in.webp -o xmp_container.webp

	       -frame 3.webp +100+50+50+1+b -loop 10 -bgcolor 255,255,255,255
	       -o anim_container.webp

       Get the 2nd frame from an animated WebP file:
       webpmux -get frame 2 anim_container.webp	-o frame_2.webp

       Using -get/-set/-strip with input file name starting with '-':
       webpmux -set icc	image_profile.icc -o icc_container.webp	-- ---in.webp
       webpmux -get icc	-o image_profile.icc --	---icc_container.webp
       webpmux -strip icc -o without_icc.webp -- ---icc_container.webp
