Nordlicht - or even Northern Lights
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hi.

Did you ever hear of Nordlicht?

I found it yesterday in the 64bit Ubuntu repository, downloaded and checked it out.

It makes colored Barcode-Images from Videos. One can manipulate the output image by some settings as well as defining width and height of the image.

It's pretty cool, I think...

Edit:

Download Nordlicht-GUI: https://www.datafilehost.com/d/8772cb29

I made it a RoxApp, so just click the directory in Rox file manager.
If using another file manager open the directory and click the AppRun file.

can it work with images, too?

^ Probably not since its intended purpose is to "creates colorful barcodes from video files" - sort of liek a thumbnail spanning the whole duration of the video.
How would one translate that to images?

@RSH:
The tool works on my system but doesn't create aesthetically pleasing images.
What commands options did you use?

Actually it's more than an aesthetical problem
I've opened an issue on github.
Can you reproduce the problematic behaviour?

Hi.

I can't recall what settings I'd used to create the attached images in my post above. After downloading and doing two or three images from video, I wrote a GUI and created images from videos in a directory in batch mode. Just attached those three
that looked best to me.

Actually I can't also reproduce the issue, as I don't have .mkv videos. My 32bit system can't play .mkv in vlc, so I convert them into .mp4 using my 64bit system. After converting I remove the .mkv videos.

So you wrote a GUI for batch processing but can't recall the settings anymore?

Still no answer.
I had a closer look at the repo; it's been around since 2013, but never extremely active, and the last commit was 2 years ago...
Not a biggie, but that might explain why it works better with older formats.
