Video conversion#

Anchorpoint has a set of build in video utilities, that allow you to convert image sequences to video, convert large video files into smaller mp4 files or replace an audiotrack in a videofile without re-encoding. Video utilities are basically Actions in Anchorpoint, which are based on the Python API. This means that you can modify the code to your own needs. All video utilities are based on FFmpeg and require installation, which happens automatically when you use them for the first time.
