ffmpeg does not provide a direct way to scroll

Watch on youtube.com

ffmpeg does not provide a direct way to scroll, but you can use “overlay” instead.

Slideshow-like, or paging

see also

Showing the source code of programming launguage as video by using pygmentize.

To achieve a “slideshow-like” effect, if you allow pre-combining of the images, you can do it like this:

Watch on youtube.com
00:00:00
horizontally
#! /bin/bash
pref="`basename $0 .sh`"
#
ifn="shading_example.png"  # Image obtained by combining 34 images horizontally
#
t="t"
images=34
pause=7
wipe=1
perpage=$((${pause} + ${wipe}))
#
ffmpeg -y -i "${ifn}" -filter_complex "
color=white:s=1920x1080,loop=-1:size=2[bg];
[0:v]scale='1920*${images}:1080',loop=-1:size=2[0v];

[bg][0v]overlay='
x=-1920*if(
gte(mod(${t}, ${perpage}), ${pause}),
floor(${t} / ${perpage}) + (mod(${t}, ${perpage}) - ${pause}),
floor(${t} / ${perpage}))
'
" -t $((${perpage} * ${images} - ${wipe})) ${pref}.mp4
00:04:31
vertically
#! /bin/bash
pref="`basename $0 .sh`"
#
ifn="cal_2019_2020.png"  # Image obtained by combining 24 images vertically
#
t="t"
images=24
pause=7
wipe=1
perpage=$((${pause} + ${wipe}))
#
ffmpeg -y -i "${ifn}" -filter_complex "
color=white:s=1920x1080,loop=-1:size=2[bg];
[0:v]scale='1920:1080*${images}',loop=-1:size=2[0v];

[bg][0v]overlay='
y=-1080*if(
gte(mod(${t}, ${perpage}), ${pause}),
floor(${t} / ${perpage}) + (mod(${t}, ${perpage}) - ${pause}),
floor(${t} / ${perpage}))
'
" -t $((${perpage} * ${images} - ${wipe})) ${pref}.mp4

It should be noted that this is not the only way to get a slideshow effect. In some cases, pre-combining may not be acceptable because of the size of the image.
