How does it work?

  • - A bash script runs ffmpeg to export frames from a video file.
  • - The frame rate of the exports depends on the length of the video.
  • - The bash script then calls a PHP script which extracts the average color from each frame.
  • - The results are spit out as a JSON file with the hex values in an array.
  • - The front-end runs on backbone, and presents the color data.
  • - Navigate the colors in a number of ways, and compare the color to each frame.
