Yes, definitely. Since this video was pretty simple, I could have likely setup a process that created every JPG frame of the video and then used FFMPEG to merge together those frames with audio to create a video. However, I was a bit wary of too much automation and felt the responsibility to continually health checking data coming in. I should also mention that the DataClay software I ended up using could be configured in such a manner that it receives information in real-time. In addition, DataClay allows for post-render actions, such as “Upload to S3.” In the end, I was mostly worried about the volume and what that might to do any environment if it was setup like a hose.
