#Python 🐍 – Let’s stack and edit some videos 🎦 using moviepy

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Today I’ll share another cool Python library: moviepy.

And, as usual let’s share the code, the best way to explain part of this library capabilities

from moviepy.editor import VideoFileClip, clips_array, vfx
clip11 = VideoFileClip("cat1.mp4").margin(10)
clip21 = VideoFileClip("cat2.mp4").margin(10)
clip12 = clip11.fx( vfx.mirror_x)
clip22 = clip21.fx( vfx.mirror_y)
final_clip = clips_array([[clip11, clip21],
[clip12, clip22]])

Super, easy. It start with 2 cats videos, create 2 new videos with mirroring effects from the source videos, and create a final video with the 4 videos stacked. Let’s take a look at the final video

stacked_vid_5sec (2)

And, of course, this is video editing, so the process may take some time.

Happy coding!
