A way to make Himawari-8 animations

Himawari-8 animation tutorial

Here’s how to make animations like this one. It requires intermediate Unix command-line knowledge, to install some tools and to debug if they don’t work. You’ll need these utilities:

  • curl (or you can translate to wget)
  • convert and montage, part of ImageMagick
  • ffmpeg, plus whatever codecs
  • parallel, for iteration that’s nicer than shell for loops or xargs
  • run everything in zsh for leading 0s in numerical ranges to work
