NAME

       FreeJ - vision mixer

SYNOPSIS

       freej [ options ] [ streaming options ] [ layer files and video devices
       ]

DESCRIPTION

       FreeJ is a vision mixer: an instrument for realtime video  manipulation
       used  in  the fields of dance teather, veejaying, medical visualisation
       and TV.

       With FreeJ multiple layers can be filtered thru effect chains and  then
       mixed  together.  The  supported  layer inputs are images, movies, live
       cameras,  particle  generators,  text  scrollers  and  more.   All  the
       resulting  video  mix  can  be  shown  on  multiple and remote screens,
       encoded into a movie and streamed live to the internet.

       FreeJ can be controlled locally or remotely, also from multiple  places
       at  the  same time, using its slick console interface; can be automated
       via javascript and operated via MIDI and Joystick.

OPTIONS

       -h     show commandline help

       -v     show version information

       -D [ num ]
              set debug verbosity level to (1 to 3), default is 1

       -s [ WxH ]
              set resolution to WidthxHeight, default is 400x300

       -n     start with all layers deactivated

       -c     start without any interactive text console interface

       -j [ javascript.js ]
              run the javascript.js script file

       -e [ file.ogg ]
              set the filename of the local encoded ogg-theora movie  (default
              is:  freej.ogg),  files  already  existing  are not overwritten,
              instead filename-2.ogg is  used;  if  a  number  is  given,  the
              corresponding  file  descriptor  is  used.   To  start/stop  the
              recording and streaming use ctrl-w while running.

FILES AND DEVICES

       FreeJ can run with an infinite number of layers, as much  as  your  CPU
       can handle. Layer types are recognized from file extensions.

       Supported layers types include:

       movies (*.avi|*.asf|*.asf|*.wma|*.wmv|*.mov|*.mpeg)

       text (*.txt)
              depends from freetype library http://freetype.org

       cameras thru the Video4Linux device (/dev/v4l/*)

       images (*.png|*.jpg and more)

       flash animations (*.swf)
              only  the  vectorial  animation  is  supported  (flash  v.3), no
              scripting nor streaming, but that’s in FreeJ anyway ;)

       particle generator
              can be crated from commandline as  layer_gen  (or  ctrl-g  while
              running)  to  create  a layer that doesn’t needs any input, just
              draws nice particles

       any file type
              if not recognized will be threated as  a  text  scrolling  layer
              showing its contents scrolling them vertically on the screen

EXAMPLES

       Streaming  a  video  with resolution 240x192 on server dyne.org at port
       8000 mountpoint freej.ogg with password  hackme  using  the  webcam,  a
       video an image a text , and a flash animation:

       freej  -s 240x192 -T 7 -V 3 -i http://dyne.org:8000/freej.ogg -p hackme
       /dev/video0 stallman.avi mask.png subtitle.txt
