MoviePy – Adding Margin to Video File Clip

  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can add margin to the video file clip in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. In typography, a margin is the area between the main content of a page and the page edges. The margin helps to define where a line of text begins and ends. When a page is justified the text is spread out to be flush with the left and right margins, similarly margin of video file clip add extra space between the video and main frame.

In order to do this we will use margin method with the VideoFileClip object

Syntax : clip.margin(n)

Argument : It takes integer as argument

Return : It returns VideoFileClip object



Below is the implementation




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
  
# loading video dsa gfg intro video 
clip = VideoFileClip("dsa_geek.webm")
  
# getting subclip from the original video
clip = clip.subclip(0, 10)
  
# adding margin to the video
clip = clip.margin(40)
  
  
# showing final clip
clip.ipython_display()

Output :

Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4

Another example




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
  
# loading video gfg
clip = VideoFileClip("geeks.mp4")
  
  
# getting subclip from it
clip1 = clip.subclip(0, 7)
  
# adding margin to the clip
clip1 = clip1.margin(20)
  
  
# showing final clip
clip1.ipython_display()

Output :

Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
MoviePy - Writing audio in __temp__TEMP_MPY_wvf_snd.mp3
                                                                                                                       
MoviePy - Done.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
