MoviePy – Creating Text Clip
  • Last Updated : 18 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can create a text clip in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Video is formed by the frames, combination of frames creates a video each frame is an individual image. Text clip is basically a clip here we can say it as image containing text.

In order to do this we will use TextClip method

Syntax : TextClip(text)

Argument : It takes string as necessary argument and color size other styling effect are optional argument

Return : It returns TextClip object



Below is the implementation




# importing editor from movie py
from moviepy.editor import *
  
# text
text = "GeeksforGeeks"
  
# creating a text clip
# having font arial-bold
# with font size = 70
# and color = green
clip = TextClip(text, font ="Arial-Bold", fontsize = 70, color ="green")
  
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display() 

Output :

Another example




# importing editor from movie py
from moviepy.editor import *
  
# text
text = "Hello"
  
# creating a text clip
# having font arial-bold
# with font size = 50
# and color = black
clip = TextClip(text, font ="Arial-Bold", fontsize = 50, color ="black")
  
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display() 

Output :
