Convert video to character art animation.

Project description


Convert video to character art animation.



Install cvc:

pip install cvc

This tool relies on imageio-ffmpeg, but only the binary version of imageio-ffmpeg contains the ffmpeg binary. if pip choose the source version, problem will occurs.


cvc --chars_width 120 --t_end 10 path/of/video_file

The command shows that the specified video will be converted to an ascii art animation with the width of 120, and only convert the first 10 seconds. you'll see a file named output.mp4 in your current directory when completes, have fun ~

p.s. it's a bit slow, turn down the width and fps, to speed up the conversion.

Check cvc --help for more information.
