MoviePy – Setting FPS of the Clip
  • Last Updated : 30 Aug, 2020

In this article we will see how we can set fps 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. Frame rate is the frequency at which consecutive images called frames appear on a display. The term applies equally to film and video cameras, computer graphics, and motion capture systems. Frame rate may also be called the frame frequency, and be expressed in hertz.

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

Syntax : clip.set_fps(n)

Argument : It takes integer value 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.mp4"
     
# getting only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
  
# new clip with new fps
new_clip = clip.set_fps(5)
  
# displaying new clip
new_clip.ipython_display(width = 360)

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)
  
# new clip with new fps
new_clip = clip.set_fps(100)
  
# displaying new clip
new_clip.ipython_display(width = 360)

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
