Different codecs

Post by clarkjohnken »

Hello, I was wondering if there's a command that lets us choose the coding format, in this case for jpeg/png or another format to -> .heic/.heif . I'd like to know if I could choose between H.265 and H.264 since I need to make a comparison on efficiency and run some tests and I don't know if ImageMagick could help or it just codes the image with the same coder by default

ImageMagick delegates the processing to the libheif library, which looks to me like it is only H.265 But see https://github.com/strukturag/libheif
