Something like this:


duration of 40 frames and zoom of 0.01 is arbitary, if they change per
image, expression becomes even more
complicated for little gain, but using _in_ in expression for
calculating duration and zoom (0.01) gain
it could be doable after much of guessing.......

You need to use git ffmpeg version anyway for any single command to
work properly with
multiple images.

Lossless video, ffv1 if you can wait for decoding or encoding or
rawvideo if you have fast disk with enough free space.
