MoviePy – FPS of Video File Clip
  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the fps i.e frame per second(frame rate) of the video file in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Frame rate is the speed at which those images are shown, or how fast you “flip” through the book and it’s usually expressed as “frames per second, ” or FPS. Each image represents a frame, so if a video is captured and played back at 24fps, that means each second of video shows 24 distinct still images.

We can load the video file clip with the help of command given below

clip = VideoFileClip(file_name)

In order to do this we will use fps attribute with the VideoFileClip object

Syntax : clip.fps

Argument : It takes no argument



Return : It returns float

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").subclip(0, 10)
  
  
# getting frame rate of the clip
rate = clip.fps
  
# printing the fps
print("FPS : " + str(rate))
  
  
print("---------------------------------------")
  
  
# showing final clip
clip.ipython_display()

Output :

FPS : 29.97002997002997

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)
  
# getting frame rate of the clip
rate = clip1.fps
  
# printing the fps
print("FPS : " + str(rate))
  
  
print("---------------------------------------")
  
  
# showing final clip
clip1.ipython_display()

Output :

FPS : 60.0
