The waveform operation creates an image showing the temporal audio activity within the recording. This is be done with a probably well known waveform (see example image). waveform The implementation uses an ffmpeg filter that produces a waveform PNG image file from an audio/video file with at least one audio channel.

Parameter Table

configuration keys example description default value
source-flavors */audio Input parameter is the source-flavor of the media files for which a waveform should be created. The *-operator can be used if the waveform should be created for all flavors with certain subtypes (like "audio" in our example). EMPTY
source-tags edit, waveform Input parameter is the source-tag of the media files for which a waveform should be created. All media, that match source-flavors or source tags will be processed. EMPTY
target-flavor */waveform The output-parameter is target-flavor which should use the *-operator if it was used in the source-flavor too. EMPTY
target-tags preview The output-parameter is a comma-separated list of tags that will be added to the waveform image media package attachment. EMPTY
