I've never done video editing or processing. Searching various video forums and Google didn't turn up anything either (wrong search terms?). I've also installed a few freeware video processing tools with no success.
I'd like to export color information from a single, user-defined pixel in a video. The result should be some sort of csv or txt file with two columns: 1) a column with entries corresponding to time (or frame index) and 2) a column (or three columns) with color information.
To put it another way. I'd like to have the video analogue of the color picker in photo editing software (the eyedropper in Phtotshop/Gimp) that gives a plot of color vs. time.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
