I'm trying to make a video from an image and I want to add a zoom effect on the center. The input image is 640x360.

The command I'm using is:

ffmpeg -framerate 25 -loop 1 -i 46686405.jpg -vf "zoompan=z='min(zoom+0.0015,1.4)':x=320:y=180:d=150" -t 6 -c:v mpeg2video -b:v 700k -s 640x360 -y 46686405.mpeg

My goal is to have a video mpeg of 6 seconds with size 640x360 and 25fps. The zoom effect should start from the center and the maximum zoom I want is 40% of the image.

Actually I'm able to generate a video, but it's jerky. I noticed that if zoom starts from top left (x=y=0), it was fluid. In both cases I receive errors like that

Where am I wrong? Thank you for any help.

This is my complete console output:

  • Your log's format is missing a few line breaks, can you please fix this? Do you need MPEG-2 video? – slhck Feb 5 '15 at 9:17
  • @slhck I modified my log. Yes, I need MPEG-2 video because after I must concat the video with another MPEG-2 video. Anyway I tried also to generate an mp4 video, but the result is the same. – stuzzo Feb 5 '15 at 9:38
  • Thanks! I reproduced this with a more recent version. Same problem was mentioned here last year: superuser.com/questions/776452/… -- time for a bug report? – slhck Feb 5 '15 at 11:19

  • @slhck Thank you. Sorry for the duplicate, I was thinking that my code was not set properly. – stuzzo Feb 5 '15 at 11:46
