I am creating a video from 38,179 images. ffmpeg successfully creates a video but only includes the first 20,998 images. It does not include the last 17xxx images. I am running Windows 7 64-bit.

The files are all in the same directory and named 1000000.jpg - 1038179.jpg.

This is the command I used:

ffmpeg -r 16 -i 1%6d.jpg -r 16 video.mp4

How can I get it to include all the images?

This is the last screen of output:

And I went ahead and uploaded the full report - depositfiles.com/files/gba3ec6ji –  travisb Sep 25 '13 at 20:44
    
I see that the input frame rate isn't correctly applied. It still shows as 25fps although you specified 16. Your input therefore reads 25 frames in a second, and this is why they are dropped to achieve the final output rate of 16. Can you please try the same thing with a more recent build of ffmpeg? For Linux there are several static builds here: ffmpeg.org/download.html – in general, what you're trying to do should work just fine and I've done it several times. Could be that you're just seeing a bug. –  slhck Sep 28 '13 at 18:59
    
slhck - I updated to the newest version. I don't think where it is showing 25fps is the problem. I tested it with two other sets of images and it showed 25fps but it did create a video of 16fps and included all the images. Say I have 10,000 images in a folder. In the case of the two other sets I just mentioned it includes images from the full range from 1.jpg to 10000.jpg. It might be dropping some, but it is using the full range. The problem with the one set of images that I started this thread about is that it will start at 1.jpg and stop around 6000.jpg. It never gets to the last images. –  travisb Oct 1 '13 at 10:28
