MoviePy – Mirroring Video File Clip for x-axis
  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can mirror the video file clip to the x-axis in MoviePy. MoviePy is a Python module for video editing, which can be used for basic operations on videos and GIF’s. Mirroring video according to the x-axis, a mirror video (in a plane mirror) is a reflected duplication of an object that appears almost identical, but is reversed in the direction perpendicular to the mirror surface. As an optical effect it results from reflection off of substances such as a mirror or water.

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

Syntax : clip.fx(vfx.mirror_x)

Argument : It takes vfx object as argument

Return : It returns VideoFileClip object



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")
  
# getting subclip from the original video
clip = clip.subclip(0, 10)
  
# mirroring image according to the x axis
clip = clip.fx(vfx.mirror_x)
  
  
# showing final clip
clip.ipython_display()

Output :

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

                                                                                                                       
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)
  
# mirroring image according to the x axis
clip = clip.fx(vfx.mirror_x)
  
  
# showing final clip
clip.ipython_display()

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
