Convert WMV to BMP Sequence
The BMP file format, also known as bitmap image file or
Device Independent Bitmap (DIB) file format or simply a bitmap, is a raster graphics
image file format used to store bitmap digital images, independently of the display
device (such as a graphics adapter), especially on Microsoft Windows and OS/2
operating systems. The BMP is stored uncompressed; so it's a lossless image format,
but file size is very big.
WMV to BMP Converter Software converts WMV to BMP sequence files.
With the software, you could get every frame image of WMV in BMP format. The
converter software also supports other output image formats such as JPG,
PNG, and TIFF. You can convert only a part of WMV to BMP instead of the entire
file. And you can set how many frames per second to be extracted with the software.
The output BMP files look something like this.
The software also supports other formats and portable devices such as WMA, M4R (iPhone ringtone), PNG image sequence, 3G2, VOB (DVD Video), M4B (MPEG-4 audiobook), SPX (Speex),
etc. The software could convert MP4 to TS, M2TS to VOB (DVD Video), FLV to 3GP, H263 to Android Tablet, TS to 3G2, and so on.
WMV to BMP Software supports batch conversion and, is compatible
with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is WMV?
WMV is short for Windows Media Video. This video format was developed by
Microsoft upon non-standard version of MPEG-4. But as WMV was standardized
as an independent SMPTE standard and is considered to be a unique format
now. This file is also found as a video/audio file on the Xbox. A number
of programs capture this file extension. The file system will work on a
PC with the settings listed above, as well as a Xbox 360, at 1080p/1080i.
Although WMV is generally packed into the ASF container format, it can
also be put into the Matroska or AVI container format. The resulting files
have the .MKV and .AVI file extensions, respectively. One common way to
store WMV in an AVI file is to use the WMV 9 Video Compression Manager
(VCM) codec implementation. The latest versions of WMV (now, summer 2005,
the latest one is called WMV10) don't have much in common with MPEG-4 anymore,
but use Microsoft's own video encoding technologies instead. The original
video format, known as WMV, was originally designed for Internet streaming
applications, as a competitor to RealVideo. The loss of the ability to
restore licenses for WMV files in the Windows Media Player 11 was not positively
received. In addition, the Microsoft Zune does not support the standard
Windows Media DRM system, rendering protected WMV files unplayable. In
the past, computer users have been known to have difficulties opening these
files due to a flaw in Windows Media Player or the WMV file. These issues
have since been resolved with the newer versions of Windows Media Player
and other similar media players. WMV files should now open and play with
ease. Microsoft Windows Media Player 9 was the last version of the Windows
Media Player developed for Mac OS X. However, Mac users can use Flip4Mac
WMV (also known as Microsoft Windows Media Components for QuickTime) to
play WMV files.
What is BMP?
A BMP file is an uncompressed image format that DOS and Windows operating
systems use to display graphics. Also known as a bitmap file, a BMP file
has the advantage of not relying on compression so the overall quality
of the image does not degrade. You can make your own BMP file by using
the Windows built-in graphics application known as Microsoft Paint. Bitmap
file header: this block of bytes is at the start of the file and is used
to identify the file. A typical application reads this block first to ensure
that the file is actually a BMP file and that it is not damaged. The first
two bytes of the BMP file format are the character 'B' then the character
'M' in 1-byte ASCII encoding. All of the integer values are stored in little-endian
format (i.e. least-significant byte first). A BMP file consists of either
3 or 4 parts as shown in the diagram on the right. The first part is a
header, this is followed by a information section, if the image is indexed
colour then the palette follows, and last of all is the pixel data. The
position of the image data with respect to the sart of the file is contained
in the header. Information such as the image width and height, the type
of compression, the number of colours is contained in the information header.
For DIBs loaded in memory, the color table can also consist of 16 bit entries,
that constitute indexes to the currently realized palette (an additional
level of indirection), instead of explicit RGB color definitions. The simplicity
of the BMP file format, and its widespread familiarity in Windows and elsewhere,
as well as the fact that this format is relatively well documented and
free of patents, makes it a very common format that image processing programs
from many operating systems can read and write.
