creating a HEIC file adding 2 JPEGs, 1-with the image and 2-with depthmap

Post by josephotoservices » 2019-06-01T12:18:29-07:00

Hi everyone I'm new in here; I got an iMac running Mojave, yesterday I successfully installed ImageMagick from Terminal.

I need to create a HEIC file based on 2 JEPGs one with the image and the second with depth map; in order to build something like an iPhone Portrait file.

I tried this but didn’t work as I supposed it; anyway I gave it a try.

Thanx in Advanced

Did you install libheif?

From the format page:
HEIC R Apple High efficiency Image Format HEIC requires the libheif delegate library.
See https://github.com/strukturag/libheif and read the limitations. That library is not in full compliance with the Apple heic format. It is limited in its scope.

Also I believe it is limited to IM 7. What version of ImageMagick did you install?

Search this forum for heic or libheif. For example I found

my version is 7.0.8-9, is it suitable for my purpose ?
before I register this forum I read the link https://imagemagick.org/discourse-serve ... ic#p160050
and to be honest it supposed many questions when I tried to understanding all long confusing command line parameters; but I’ll learn all the meaning during this week but right now I need a shortcut.

Thank fmw42 for your pretty fast answers; but if you or anyone happened to know any ideas? please help me with it

Possibly. It was introduced earlier, but there have been some bug fixes and changes. Read the changelog at https://imagemagick.org/script/changelog.php and search for heic.


Sorry, I have no experience with it.

Just to be sure everything is OK with your install, type in a terminal window:

Code: Select all

magick -version
and paste here what you get back.

Also try
magick logo: logo.gif
Does that create an output image in your current directory.
