Please don't send replies just to the sender.

I wish to use ffmpeg. Unless someone can categorically say 'ffmpeg can't 
do that' I'd like to search for an answer in thif ffmpeg forum.

I've tried ImageMagick with various command combinations. None come 
anywhere as near as that ffmpeg command in terms of clarity & file size 
reduction. The most annoying thing is when viewing the resulting images 
(I use both freecommander & irfanview) the scroll wheel to zoom in/out 
becomes much more sensitive & I have to click the wheel many more times 
to zoom in the equivalent amount.
