In this article we will see how we can save a single frame at given time 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. Video is formed by the frames, combination of frames creates a video each frame is an individual image. We can store the specific frame at any time.
In order to do this we will use
save_framemethod with the VideoFileClip object
Syntax : clip.save_frame(“frame.png”, t)
Argument : It takes image name as argument and time as optional argument
Return : It returns None
Below is the implementation
Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4. Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4 Moviepy - Done ! Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4
