NAME

yuvmedianfilter - A filter for yuv images produced by the mjpeg tools

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

yuvmedianfilter [-r num] [-R num] [-t num] [-T num] [-I num] [-f] [-w num] [-s num] [-v num] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

yuvmedianfilter is designed to enhance/filter images. It takes the input from STDIN and writes output to STDOUT.
This filter looks around the current point for a radius and averages the values that fall inside a threshold. So the image is softened and the edges become more sharp. If the input material is noisy (it is always noisy but you do not always see it) the output images are improved and the encoder spends less bandwidth encoding noise. The more sophisticated version of image filtering is yuvdenoise. But you can use both programs in the encoding procces. It cannot process a recorded file and write the improved version to another file.

OPTIONS

yuvmedianfilter accepts the following options:

-r num Radius for luma median (default: 2 pixels)
-R num Radius for chroma median (default: 2 pixels)
-t num Trigger threshold for luma (default: 2 [0=disable])
-T num Trigger threshold for chroma (default: 2 [0=disable])
-I num Interlacing type (0=no, 1=yes, default: taken from yuv stream)
-f Fast mode, i.e. the threshold is ignored, and a simple mean of the surrounding values is calculated.
-w num In fast mode, the weight given to the current value versus the surrounding values. Default is 8.
Note that certain combinations of radii and weights have been optimized to be even faster -- radius 1 and weight 2.667, radius 1 and weight 8, and radius 2 and weight 8.
-c num In slow mode, more than this fraction of the pixels must be within the threshold; otherwise the pixel is simply the weighted mean of pixels within a radius of 1. Default is 0.33333.
-s num Number of beginning frames to skip. The first num frames are written to stdout unfiltered. This is useful for resuming an interrupted job without having to duplicate work.
-v num Verbosity level (0, 1 or 2)
-h Print out a help message

BUGS

It is slow. Using a radius greater than the default of 2 is painfully slow.
