# Combine multiple images to form a strip of images ffmpeg

combineffmpegimages

I wish to combine multiple images into a single strip of images, using FFMPEG.

I have been trying to search this thing on google, but unable to find anything useful. All links take me to places where multiple images are combined to give a video output.

Assuming that all the files are of the same width and height, how can I join them to get a single strip of images. Can anybody help me?

Example using the scale and tile video filter in ffmpeg:

$ls *.png 001.png 002.png 003.png 004.png 005.png$ ffmpeg -i %03d.png -filter_complex scale=120:-1,tile=5x1 output.png


If you have file names that are in a non-numbered sequential order you can use the glob pattern type:

$ffmpeg -pattern_type glob -i "*.png" -filter_complex tile=5x1 output.png  Output example where each individual input image is a unique solid color (only 248 bytes!): You can also add a margin (outer border space) and padding (space between frames): $ ffmpeg -i %03d.png -filter_complex scale=120:-1,tile=5x1:margin=10:padding=4 output.png


A vertical orientation is possible too: tile=1x5 for this example:
