Galea is a simple, open source, command line programme to merge various video transitions together
These motorbike videos have been created with Galea.
The code is hosted on github. just download and run
./galea.py. Download the latest zip file here
Galea was created because I felt most video editing software was too complex, especially when I just want to stitch some videos together, so I tried to make Galea use sensible defaults and not require much thinking.
You can call it with just:
galea.py video1.mp4 video2.mp4 video3.mp4
And it will produce a file called
video.ogg with each file stiched together with a 0.5 second transition between the lot.
Usage: galea.py [options] Options: -h, --help show this help message and exit -o OUTPUT_FILENAME, --output=OUTPUT_FILENAME prefix for filename to save output to -l TRANSITION_LENGTH, --transition-length=TRANSITION_LENGTH Length in seconds of transition (default: 0.5) -t TRANSITION_TYPE, --transition-type=TRANSITION_TYPE -m MUSIC, --music=MUSIC File to use as music backingtrack. default: no music -s MUSIC_START, --music-start=MUSIC_START Start the music file playing at this point, not the start of the music -f FORMAT, --format=FORMAT Type of video format output -v MUSIC_VOLUME, --music-volume=MUSIC_VOLUME Multiply the music volume by this. 1.0=leave same (default), 0.5=half as loud
By default it creats a OGV file, at a video high bitrate, i.e. the file will be quite large. You probably want to convert that to a smaller file. I used the OGV as a decent intermediate file format, and didn't want to lose any quality, so I didn't change the options.
'galea' is the latin for helmet
