I was looking into making a short video based on images produced with matplotlib or pygame. Here is the results with a simple simulation used once in while in my teachings. Unfortunately, I was not able to directly produce a video I could see through the brower. I needed to convert it with MovieMaker.
And the code...
def make_video(images, outimg=None, fps=5, size=None, is_color=True, format="XVID"): """ Create a video from a list of images. @param outvid output video @param images list of images to use in the video @param fps frame per second @param size size of each frame @param is_color color @param format see http://www.fourcc.org/codecs.php @return see http://opencv-python-tutroals.readthedocs.org/en/latest/py_tutorials/py_gui/py_video_display/py_video_display.html The function relies on http://opencv-python-tutroals.readthedocs.org/en/latest/. By default, the video will have the size of the first image. It will resize every image to this size before adding them to the video. """ from cv2 import VideoWriter, VideoWriter_fourcc, imread, resize fourcc = VideoWriter_fourcc(*format) vid = None for image in images: if not os.path.exists(image): raise FileNotFoundError(image) img = imread(image) if vid is None: if size is None: size = img.shape, img.shape vid = VideoWriter(outvid, fourcc, float(fps), size, is_color) if size != img.shape and size != img.shape: img = resize(img, size) vid.write(img) vid.release() return vid
