       ct2-make-movie [options] file.ct2 arguments...


       Automates the creation of movies from a single ctioga2 command file.

       Running ct2-make-movie plot.ct2 file1.dat file2.dat file3.dat ...  runs ctioga2 repeatedly
       with the value of the variable $(arg) taking the arguments given on the command-line,  ie.
       file1.dat, then file2.dat, and so on.

       It  is  also possible to have ct2-make-movie generate its arguments itself: ct2-make-movie
       plot.ct2 0..10:101 will have $(arg) going from 0 to 10 through 101 steps.

       In each case, the variable $(index) is set to the current number of the frame being drawn,
       starting from 0. For instance, in the above example, it would range from 0 to 100.

       The  PDF  files  produced  by  ctioga2 are converted by ImageMagick's convert and fed to a
       ffmpeg encoding pipe.


       -t, --target FILE
              Target video file. Defaults to the ctioga2 file name given, with  the  suffix  .ct2
              replaced by .avi.

       --dir DIR
              Temporary directory for storage

              Prints the version of ct2-make-movie.

       -p, --[no-]pdftoppm
              Using  pdftoppm  to  rasterize  the  PDF  file rather than convert can lead to very
              significant speed improvements, depending on your version of gs.  Using this option
              enables the use of pdftoppm.  convert remains necessary for the processing, though.

       --page-size SIZE
              All  page-size  instructions  in  the  ctioga2 command file are ignored. Using this
              option allow you to set the target page size (in TeX dimensions).

       --resolution RES
              Set target resolution (overridden to some extent by page-size)

              When on (by default), ct2-make-movie gives a different name to  all  the  generated
              PDF files, which can be handy to see what has happened, but can take up quite a lot
              of disk space too. When this option is disabled, the same  PDF  file  is  rewritten
              over and over again.

       -b, --bitrate RATE
              Bitrate (indicative). Passed directly to ffmpeg.

       --codec CODEC
              Target codec.

       --ffmpeg-args ARGS
              Extra ffmpeg args.
