It's not clear whether "which" refers to the first or second string.

I'd start with a simpler and more general description, i.e.

  The image file muxer writes video frames to image files.

and then go on to describe what can be done with patterns in the
output filename.

  Patterns in the output file name can be used to produce sequentially
  numbered series of files.


  To produce sequentially numbered series of files a printf-style
  pattern can be embedded in the output filename.

stray 'd' before '0'?
