We are a Swiss Army knife for your files

Transloadit is a service for companies with developers. We handle their file uploads and media processing. This means that they can save on development time and the heavy machinery that is required to handle big volumes in an automated way.

We pioneered with this concept in 2009 and have made our customers happy ever since. We are still actively improving our service in 2020, as well as our open source projects uppy.io and tus.io, which are changing how the world does file uploading.

Encode blur-out effect into video file

You can encode some spectacular effects in your video files using our /video/encode Robot. In particular, using our ffmpeg parameter, you can add special effects outside the bounds of our traditional API options. By doing so, we're going to show how you can create a blur-out fade effect.

First, let's encode our video with our ipad-high preset. This will bring numerous encoding properties to our video file such as bitrates and codecs used. For the full list of properties brought over by our presets, please check out our Preset documentation.

Because using presets brings over a series of properties, which work in part with FFmpeg, if you attempt to add FFmpeg's filter_complex filter, your assembly will result in an error due to conflicting filters. To bypass this, we simply pass our first step to a second step, with a preset value of "empty".

Now with all that out of the way, we can look at how our desired effect is achieved. The general idea is that we use filter_complex's ability to take multiple effects and pipe them into one another. Using this premise, we will need to use the split filter to break our input video into two layers, base, and blurred. We create our stream with a blurred effect using the boxblur filter which gives three ways to tune our blurred stream: luma - controls brightness, chroma - controls color, and alpha - controls transparency. Then we add in our fade effect, using the overlay filter to layer the two effects on top of each other as the blurred effect is being faded in.

We hope this has been a good showcase of just how powerful FFmpeg can be in upping your encoding game. Happy Transcoding!

So many ways to integrate

Transloadit is a service for companies with developers. As a developer, there are many ways you can put us to good use.
  • Bulk imports

    Add one of our import Robots to acquire and transcode massive media libraries.
  • Handling uploads

    We are the experts at reliably handling uploads. We wrote the protocol for it.
  • Front-end integration

    We integrate with web browsers via our next-gen file uploader Uppy and SDKs for Android and iOS.
  • Back-end integration

    Send us batch jobs in any server language using one of our SDKs or directly interfacing with our REST API.
  • Pingbacks

    Configure a notify_url to let your server receive transcoding results JSON in the transloadit POST field.
