I want to average them.
Code: Select all
convert *.gif -average average.png
These images, even in full RGBA format, are only 21 MB each.. so I'm not sure where that overhead is coming from (60*21MB=1.2GB).
Either way, I'm just trying to average the images. This should be doable in less than 100MB, since with a running average one just needs a current image and a current sum image.
Can I tell imagemagick to do the average as it loads the images, or am I stuck using something else, writing something myself, or using some sort of dirty hack involving averaging sets, and then averaging the averages?
I am aware of the -limit options, but based on what I've seen thus far, the disk use required to use more than the ~8G I'm willing to allocate to this will take prohibitively long to do.
