In this article we will see how we can add cross fade in effect in composite video file in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Meaning of composite is combining different elements, composite video is the combination of different video clips unlike stacking and concatination of video files composite files are easy to implement but complex structure. Composite file combine the clips over one another and get played at same time, position and timing of video playback can be set any time. Cross fade is effect is set so that smooth transition occur when clips get changed. Cross fade means to fade in (a sound or image) in a motion picture or a radio or television program while fading out another sound or image.
In order to do this we will use
crossfadeinmethod with the VideoFileClip object
Syntax : clip.crossfadein(n)
Argument : It takes float as argument
Return : It returns VideoFileClip object
Below is the implementation
Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4. Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4 Moviepy - Done ! Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
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
