MoviePy – Iterating frames of Video File Clip
  • Last Updated : 30 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can iterate frames 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. A video is basically combination of lots of frame for each time there is a specific frame, in order to get the frame at given time we use get_frame method. Iterating frames means to traversing the frame a frame is represented in the form of numpy ndarray.

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

Syntax : clip.iter_frames()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns Clip.iter_frames



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.mp4"
     
# getting only first 5 seconds 
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5
  
# iterating frames
frames = clip.iter_frames()
  
# counter to count the frames
counter = 0
  
# using loop to tranverse the frames
for value in frames:
      
    # incrementing the counter
    counter += 1
      
# printing the value of the counter
print("Counter Value ", end = " : ")
print(counter)
      
      
  
  
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display(width = 360)

Output :

Counter Value  : 150
Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
