An example with soundΒΆ

An example of using MoviePy to assemble movie clips with sounds. Here are two scenes of Charade put together:

Here is the code:

"""
Description of the video:
The screen is split in two parts showing Carry and Audrey at the phone,
talking at the same time, because it is actually two scenes of a same
movie put together.
"""

from moviepy.editor import *
from moviepy.video.tools.drawing import color_split


duration = 6 # duration of the final clip

# LOAD THE MAIN SCENE
# this small video contains the two scenes that we will put together.

main_clip = VideoFileClip("../../videos/charadePhone.mp4")
W,H = main_clip.size



# MAKE THE LEFT CLIP : cut, crop, add a mask 
                            
mask = color_split((2*W/3,H),
                   p1=(W/3,H), p2=(2*W/3,0),
                   col1=1, col2=0,
                   grad_width=2)
                   
mask_clip = ImageClip(mask, ismask=True)
                   
clip_left = (main_clip.coreader()
                      .subclip(0,duration)
                      .crop( x1=60, x2=60 + 2*W/3)
                      .set_mask(mask_clip))


# MAKE THE RIGHT CLIP : cut, crop, add a mask 
                   
mask = color_split((2*W/3,H),
                   p1=(2,H), p2=(W/3+2,0),
                   col1=0, col2=1,
                   grad_width=2)

mask_clip = ImageClip(mask, ismask=True)

clip_right = (main_clip.coreader()
                       .subclip(21,21+duration)
                       .crop(x1=70, x2=70+2*W/3)
                       .set_mask(mask_clip))




# ASSEMBLE AND WRITE THE MOVIE TO A FILE

cc = CompositeVideoClip([clip_right.set_pos('right').volumex(0.4),
                         clip_left.set_pos('left').volumex(0.4)],
                         size = (W,H))
#cc.preview()
cc.write_videofile("../../biphone3.avi",fps=24, codec='mpeg4')
