Hi guys.

I have this faulty script with a "Run Applescript (calculated):
"do shell script \"ffmpeg -i\" & videofile_field & \" -filter:v select=\"eq(n\,500)\" -vframes 1 thumbnail.jpg"

I can successfully run the command in Terminal (without the filemaker field entry off)
It extract frame number 500 of any video file and makes a jpg of it. I use my home directory for this because its easier.

I'm hoping you can help me with my script. I think its difficult to make bash commands in filemaker but thats life i guess.
(i'm running Filemaker Pro 13 on MacOS 10.12)
