png2yuv(1) MJPEG tools manual png2yuv(1)

png2yuv - Convert PNG images to the YUV4MPEG stream format.

png2yuv [-b num] [-f num] [-I num] [-L num] [-n num] [-l num] [-j filename]

png2yuv decompresses a sequence of PNG files and pipes the image data to stdout as a YUV4MPEG2 stream. Any 8bit/pixel PNG format supported by libpng can be read. stdout will be filled with the YUV4MPEG movie data stream, so be prepared to pipe it on to mpeg2enc or to write it into a file.
This tool is incomplete. The alternative utility you are probably looking for is ppmtoy4m(1), which is also included in MJPEGtools.

png2yuv accepts the following options:
-b num
Frame offset: skip output of the first 'num' frames. (default: 0)
-f num
Set the frame rate of stream accepts the same numbers. Not default, this option has to be specified.
-I num
interlacing mode: p = none / progressive
 
t = top field first
 
b = bottom field first
 
No default, this option has to be specified.
-L num
0 = non-interleaved (two successive fields per PNG file)
 
1 = interleaved fields
-l num
Specifies the number of loops (default: 0 loops )
-S samp_mode
chroma subsampling mode, only for professionals, for more info see ppmtoy4m and the YUV guide on http://www.mir.com/DMG/.
 
default: 420_jpeg
 
When this option is not used the given range of images is only processed once. If you use this option and as number 1, jpeg2yv will loop forever writing the image to stdout. When you use n > 1 it will loop. n-time till it finishes.
-n num
Specifies the nummber of frames to process. (default: all = -1)
-j {1}%{2}d{3}
Read PNG frames with the name components as follows:
{1} PNG filename prefix (e g: picture_ )
{2} Counting placeholder (like in C, printf, eg 06 ))
{3} File extension. Something like this: .png A correct description of the files could look like this: picture_%06d.png
-v num
Verbosity level (0, 1 or 2)

The frame rate description does not seem to be up to date. The NTSC integer ratios are not supported (use floating point instead). As workaround specify a PAL (25) or native FILM (24) and set the right frame rate in mpeg2enc with the -F option. Interlaced handling is not implemented yet.
