I have been attempting to save my movies using the input-output plugin. What I currently want to do is save my movies from imagej without losing much quality. Then I want to run these movies through a MATLAB script that both rotates all the frames and adds a scalebar and time to each frame.
My issue is I do not know much about the different video formats, and I have found online resources difficult to understand. For example, when I save my image with the container format .avi and the codec as H.264, I find that I am losing a significant number of frames. Another case is when I save my movie with container format .avi and the codec as MPEG4; Everything is fine except running it through my MATLAB script results in a movie only showing the bottom left portion of each frame.
I realize the second example may be more of a MATLAB issue so feel free to ignore it if it is outside the scope of this forum. Could anyone provide some advice as to what settings to use when saving my movies? Or perhaps there are ways within ImageJ for me to accomplish my image rotation and adding a scalebar and time, so that I do not have to worry about how MATLAB will handle the movies.
Thank you in advance for any help!
