Example configuration

Here are some examples, mimicking common set-ups for contact sheets. Copy them to ~/.vcs.conf to make them default.
In the future you'll be able to pick from different configurations easily, right now you'll have to keep different vcs.conf files in different directories to use more than one configuration.
Shown below is the default output compared to each configuration.

FIXME More to come

bg_contact=black
bg_heading=black
bg_sign=black
fg_heading=white
fg_sign=white

Default coloursWhite on black

bg_contact=white
bg_heading=white
bg_sign=white

This will only be possible after vcs 1.11 is released

This configuration produces output closer to many video thumbnailers: small captures, closer together and a fixed grid of 5×4 captures

DISABLE_TIMESTAMPS=1
DISABLE_SHADOWS=1
th_height=160
numcaps=20
timecode_from=$TC_NUMCAPS
HPAD=0
cols=4
