MoviePy – Releasing Video File Clip

  • Last Updated : 30 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can release 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. Release the video file clip means to release/close all the resources used by the given video file clip it is used to free up some memory. It is recommended to release the object when its use is completed.

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

Syntax : clip.close()

Argument : It takes no argument

Return : It returns None



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
   
  
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display(width = 360
  
# releasing the video file clip
clip.close()

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 only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
  
# showing  clip 
clip.ipython_display(width = 360)
  
# releasing the video file clip
clip.close() 

Output :

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

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
