Convert ASF to PNG Sequence
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a bitmapped image
format that employs lossless data compression. PNG was created to improve upon
and replace GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) as an image-file format not requiring
a patent license. The initialism PNG can also be interpreted as a recursive initialism
for "PNG's Not GIF".
ASF to PNG Converter Software converts ASF to PNG sequence files.
The software captures every frame of ASF video clips, and then exports the
frames to a serial of separated PNG files. You can also convert ASF to other
image formats such as BMP, JPG, and TIFF.
And, you can set output frame rate, and output image size with the software. The
output PNG files look something like this.
The software is also a video and audio converter that supports common formats
and portable devices such as DivX, 3G2, JPG image sequence, WebM (VP8), AVI, DV, AC3, etc.
The software could convert WebM to ALAC (Apple Lossless), DAT to Windows Phone, FLV to WMA, XVID to AU, OGV to WMV,
and so on.
ASF to PNG Software supports batch conversion and, is compatible
with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is ASF?
ASF stands for Advanced Systems Format. Like ID3 tags for MP3 files ASF
files can also contain objects representing metadata. For audio - artist,
title, album and genre. For video - director. Windows software developers
are encouraged to use the available Windows Media SDKs, which include support
for creating and reading Windows Media content including ASF files. Note
that the file extension abbreviations are different from the codecs which
have the same name. ASF files often contain Windows Media Audio (.WMA)
or Windows Media Video (.WMV) data. It supports data delivery over a wide
variety of networks and protocols while still proving suitable for local
playback. ASF supports advanced multimedia capabilities including extensible
media types, component download, scaleable media types, author-specified
stream prioritization, multiple language support, and extensive bibliographic
capabilities, including document and content management. They can be compressed
using a variety of video codecs. The Advanced Systems Format (ASF) is the
file format used by Windows Media. Mostly, however, they contain material
encoded for 'progressive download', which can be distributed by any webserver
and then offers the same advantages as streaming: the file starts playing
as soon as a minimum number of bytes is received and the rest of the download
continues in the background while one is watching or listening. Instead
of specifying how (i.e. with which codec) the video or audio should be
encoded, ASF does more in the structure of the video/audio stream which
is quite similar to the function performed by the AVI, QuickTime, or Ogg
What is PNG?
Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format has a "lossless" compression
scheme. This type of format does not lose any data that refers to the image
during saving. This translates to a clearer, more realistic representation
of the illustration when viewing. PNG supports up to 8 pixel bits and has
full-range transparency and interlacing that is two-dimensional. Because
of this, upon opening, the image will load completely--initially as a low
resolution image--and then "build up" its full quality resolution
potential on the screen. The color type is specified in the color type
field, which is a bit field, as explained in the table below at right.
Not all combinations are valid, however: there is no indexed grayscale,
which would be color types 1 and 5; transparency in palette images is indicated
by the presence of a tRNS chunk, not a separate channel, so there is no
color type 7. Whereas GIF is limited to 8-bit indexed color, PNG gives
a much wider range of color depths, including 24-bit (8 bits per channel)
and 48-bit (16 bits per channel) truecolor, allowing for greater color
precision, smoother fades, etc. When an alpha channel is added, up to 64
bits per pixel (before compression) are possible. PNG offers a variety
of transparency options. With truecolor and grayscale images either a single
pixel value can be declared as transparent or an alpha channel can be added
(enabling any percentage of partial transparency to be used). For paletted
images, alpha values can be added to palette entries. The number of such
values stored may be less than the total number of palette entries, in
which case the remaining entries are considered fully opaque.
