I have anĀ AVI file and I want to create a fade effect, BUT I want the fade-in to begin with white, meaning I want the first frame to be white and the movie should slowly (and continuously) appear from that.

I managed to create a fade-in from black using ffmpeg, by using:

ffmpeg -i movie -acodec copy -filter:0 fade=in:0:100 output    

I am using Windows 7 64-bit.

Might be possible in conjunction with the color video source, but I don't know how to implement that. There's a good chance that you'll get an answer on the ffmpeg-user mailing list. –  LordNeckbeard Oct 16 '12 at 23:44
