Yes. I know this. And this is what I want. And furthermore, I want
to use a lossless format for the individual files. I don't care about disk space.
Is this possible (the original question)?

No. I know my use case. I'm better off writing out the individual
frames as they are generated with mencoder and the IRTC filter. Is this possible
(that was the original question).

I don't see how this pertains to my question. Where does bash, or stdin, or stdout
come nto play? I want to use mencoder to write individual fiels for each frame,
and not a video. Is this possible?
