In this article we will see how we can add mask 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. IsMask property tells that if the given video clip is mask or not, mask is basically that video which is used as mask for the another video. We can make a video clip as mask with the help of
set_ismask method. Adding mask gives copy of the clip with a completely opaque mask (made of ones). This makes computations slower compared to having a None mask but can be useful in many cases.
In order to do this we will use
add_maskmethod with the VideoFileClip object
Syntax : clip.add_mask()
Argument : It takes no argument
Return : It returns VideoFileClip object
Below is the implementation
Clip is Mask : False Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4. Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4 Moviepy - Done ! Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
Clip is Mask : True 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
