FFmpeg's documentation is very incomplete. I had a rough roadmap at the 
start of the year for plugging the gaps, but other events transpired.

I hope to start a systematic effort in September.


P.S. ffmpeg supports roughly a few dozen image formats. I'll add the 
missing ones to https://ffmpeg.org/general.html#Image-Formats
