In this article we will see how we can show 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 with the help of save_frame method with the VideoFileClip object.

The method clip.show enables preview one frame of a clip without having to write it to a file: the following lines display the frame in a PyGame window

In order to do this we will use show method with the VideoFileClip object
Syntax : clip.show(t)
Argument : It takes time as optional argument
Return : It returns None 
 

Below is the implementation  

Python3




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
 
  
# loading video dsa gfg intro video
clip = VideoFileClip("dsa_geek.webm")
  
# getting only first 5 seconds
clip = clip.subclip(0, 5)
 
# showing frame at 2 second
clip.show(2)

Output : 

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

                                                                                                                       
Moviepy - Done !
Moviepy - video ready __temp__.mp4 

Another example 

Python3




# Import everything needed to edit video clips
from moviepy.editor import *
 
# loading video gfg
clip = VideoFileClip("geeks.mp4")
 
 
# getting duration of the video
duration = clip.duration
 
# showing frame at 3 second
clip.show(3)

Output : 

Moviepy - Building video __temp__.mp4.
MoviePy - Writing audio in __temp__TEMP_MPY_wvf_snd.mp3
                                                                                                                       
MoviePy - Done.
Moviepy - Writing video __temp__.mp4
