thank you for the quick answer
when trying this out I notice 3 things
*1: the original size is kept*
if the starting crop is *crop=h=100 *then using *c crop -1 h 150 *dose
noting and the other way, using *c crop -1 h 50 *leaves the actual pixel
dimentions at 100 but the lower portion is transparent.
So you can't change the actual dimentions with a command? is the a filter i
should use after crop to accomplish this?
*2: c crop w dosen't work*
*c crop -1 h 100 *crop height to 100 but *c crop -1 w 100 *stil returns a
full width image but crops to 1 pixel in height
i also tried *c crop -1 w ih *and that returns a full width and dosnt crop
the height but *c crop -1 w ih-1 *also crops to 1 pixel in height
*3: can't set w and h at the same time*
using *c drawtext -1 reinit fontcolor=red:text='test' *works
but i can't figur out how to do the same with crop
*c crop -1 h 50 : w 50 *
[Parsed_crop_2 @ 000001dde3ffaa80] [Eval @ 00000005a89fdd80] Invalid chars
':w50' at the end of expression '50 : w 50'
[Parsed_crop_2 @ 000001dde3ffaa80] Error when evaluating the expression '50
: w 50'
Command reply for stream 0: ret:-22 res:
i tried a a few combinations with no luck
*@Michael *i agree that the doc could be a bit cleare. as you can see i got
my idears from the only example i could find and that was from drawtext.
