Potentially hundreds of images in an animated frame sequence

Post by bocau169 »

Hi all,
I have a situation where I have potentially hundreds of images in an animated frame sequence. I would like to pack the frames into the channels of new images.
Thanks

Imagemagick 6 cannot currently handle that many channels. It only currently saves up to 5: C,M,Y,K,A in an external format. Imagemagick 7 can handle up to about 30, I believe, but only in internal format files.

You can write the images into a montage image grid.
