MoviePy – Rotating Video File
  • Last Updated : 01 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can rotate 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. Rotation is the act or process of moving or turning around of a video to its central point. Rotation of 360 degree will be a complete turn around a central point. We can rotate the video with any angle.

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

Syntax : clip.rotate(degree)

Argument : It takes integer 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 as video is large
clip = clip.subclip(55, 65)
  
# rotating clip by 45 degree
clip = clip.rotate(45)
  
# showing clip
clip.ipython_display(width = 480)

Output :

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

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
