Convert Image Sequence

I am trying to convert a image sequence that starts on frame 0001, but image magick keep insisting to give me my output starting from frame 000.

I am using the command:

convert inputSequence.%04d.dpx[1-32] outputSequence.%04d.jpg[1-32]

But my sequence gets renamed to:

inputSequence.0001.dpx >>> outputSequence.0000.jpg
inputSequence.0002.dpx >>> outputSequence.0001.jpg

Am I forgetting any extra option to force Image Magick to start on frame 0001 as it is supposed to?

Thank you very much for you attention

This topic properly belongs in the User's forum.

Magick Scripting Language is quite different from the command line. see for Magick Scripting and for command line.

convert inputSequence.%04d.dpx[1-32] outputSequence.%04d.jpg[1-32]
I do not believe that you can define frame numbers as [1-32] for output images.

If you want to number your output images starting with 1 use -scene 1.

convert inputSequence.%04d.dpx[1-32] -scene 1 outputSequence.%04d.jpg

But note that frame numbers for the input start with 0. So by using 1-32, you are skipping the first frame.

see ... .php#scene ... php#output

Hi Fred

Thanks for clearifying it for me. I used the -scene and now it worked.
Also, thanks for the links. Very handy indeed.

Best regards
