In this article we will see how we can get the cut out of 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. Cut out video is the trimmed video or we can say it as some few seconds get cut from the original video, it is used to skip some part of the video. Cut out means to get the video from original video with skip of some time in between the video.

In order to do this we will use cutout method with the VideoFileClip object
Syntax : clip.cutout(ts, te)
Argument : It takes two integer as argument (start and end time to skip)
Return : It returns VideoFileClip
 

Below is the implementation  

Python3




# Import everything needed to edit video clips 
from moviepy.editor import *
     
# loading video dsa gfg intro video 
clip = VideoFileClip("dsa_geek.mp4"
      
# getting only first 5 seconds 
clip = clip.subclip(0, 15
   
# cutting out some part from the clip
clip = clip.cutout(3, 10)
   
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display(width = 360)

Output : 

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

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4

Another example 

Python3




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
   
# loading video gfg
clip = VideoFileClip("geeks.mp4")
   
# getting only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
     
# getting only first 5 seconds 
clip = clip.subclip(0, 10
   
# cutting out some part from the clip
clip = clip.cutout(3, 7)
   
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display(width = 360)

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
