MoviePy – Getting Sub Clip

In this article we will see how we can show a 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. A subclip is a section of a master (source) clip that you want to edit and manage separately in your project. You can use subclips to organize long media files. You work with subclips in a Timeline panel as you do with master clips. Trimming and editing a subclip is constrained by its start and end points. Clipping helps in overcome the the memory error occur while showing large video at a single time.

In order to do this we will use subclip method with the VideoFileClip object

Syntax : clip.subclip(i, j)

Argument : It takes two integer argument which are starting and ending value in seconds

Return : It returns VideoFileClip object

# loading video dsa gfg intro video
clip = VideoFileClip("dsa_geek.webm")
  
# getting subclip as video is large
clip = clip.subclip(55, 65)
  
# showing clip
clip.ipython_display(width = 480)

Output :
