Convert WMV 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".
WMV to PNG Converter Software converts WMV to PNG sequence files.
The software captures every frame of WMV video clips, and then exports the
frames to a serial of separated PNG files. You can also convert WMV 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 MP2, AMR, WMV, Windows Phone, PPM image sequence, CAF (Core Audio Format), VCD, etc.
The software could convert EVO to ASF, RM to WebM (VP8), H264 to OGG Vorbis, FLV to M4V, EVO to SWF,
and so on.
WMV to PNG Software supports batch conversion and, is compatible
with Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP/2000.
What is WMV?
WMV (Windows Media Video) is a common video format used on Windows operating
systems and enabled media devices. Videos in this format range in size
depending on the quality settings and resolution. 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.
WMV 9 also introduced a new profile titled Windows Media Video 9 Professional,
which is activated automatically whenever the video resolution exceeds
300,000 pixels (e.g., 528x576, 640*480 or 768x432 and beyond) and the bitrate
1000 kbit/s. It is targeted towards high-definition video content, at resolutions
such as 720p and 1080p. Microsoft recommends that ASF files containing
non-Windows Media codecs use the generic .ASF file extension. Since the
codec relies on the decoder (player) to generate video frames in real-time,
playing WMV Image files even at moderate resolutions (e.g. 30 frames per
second at 1024 * 768 resolution) requires heavy computer processing. The
latest version of the codec, WMV 9.1 Image, used by Photo Story 3, features
additional transformation effects, but is not compatible with the original
WMV 9 Image codec. Windows Media High Definition Video (WMV HD) is the
marketing name for high definition videos encoded using Microsoft Windows
Media Video 9 codecs. These low-complexity codecs make it possible to watch
high definition movies in 1280*720 (720p) or 1920*1080 (1080p) resolutions
on many modern personal computers running Microsoft Windows XP or Windows
Vista, although the hardware requirements are steep.
What is 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.
Images saved in the PNG image format potentially have a much higher color
depth than their GIF counterparts - while GIF limits its palette to 256
colors, PNG can be true color. This allows for a much higher fidelity of
image than GIFs are capable of, allowing for images on a par with their
JPEG cousins. In addition to the now-obsolete benefit of being royalty
free, the PNG image format has a number of technical advantages over the
GIF format. PNG file size can vary significantly depending on how it is
encoded and compressed; this is discussed and a number of tips are given
in PNG: The Definitive Guide. When compared to BMP (Bitmap) images, PNG
excels in almost every area. BMP images are uncompressed, so file sizes
will always be smaller in a comparable PNG image. PNG supports a greater
color depth and transparency. Some Web developers and game designers still
prefer BMP images, especially when programming for Windows, as the lack
of compression means that smaller images will load faster. For almost every
other application, PNG is the better choice. It has a transparency level,
just like GIF. You can create an image without a background color, which
will then overlay another image without blocking it. The PNG image format
also allows for an alpha channel, providing transparency options that are
not available in any other common image format. This transparency is, unfortunately,
not supported by Internet Explorer, making its use as a web tool limited.
