By | March 19, 2021

The simplest way to convert images (PNG, JPG) to a video is use ImageSequenceClip() method. In this tutorial, we will use an example to show you how to implement it.

ImageSequenceClip()

ImageSequenceClip() is defined as:

ImageSequenceClip(sequence, fps=None, durations=None, with_mask=True, ismask=False, load_images=False)

Here

sequence: images

fps: Number of picture frames to read per second.

durations: List of the duration of each picture.

You should notice:

If fps is not none, durations will be computed as:

durations = [1.0/fps for image in sequence]

files = ['1.png', '2.png', '3.png', '4.png']
clip = ImageSequenceClip(files, fps = 4) 
clip.write_videofile("video.mp4", fps = 24)

Run this code, you may get this error:
