ffmpeg to create timelapse video from images

This is the best tool I found. Much faster and much easier to use on Mac. I’ve tried iMovie and it’s ok but it’s not as fast (too many steps and processes). Here is a one-liner that works for me all the time:

ffmpeg -r 4 -pattern_type glob -i “*.JPG” -s 1280×720 -pix_fmt yuv420p timelapse.mp4
