Project description

Video to chars

Convert video to character art animation.



p.s. Tested only on linux

install video2chars:

pip install video2chars


P.S. video2chars depends on moviepy, and moviepy depends on the software FFMPEG for video reading and writing. You don’t need to worry about that, as FFMPEG should be automatically downloaded/installed by ImageIO during your first use of video2chars. If you want to use a specific version of FFMPEG, you can set the FFMPEG_BINARY environment variable. See moviepy/ for details.

video2chars --chars_width 120 --t_end 10 path_of_video_file

The above command shows that the path of the specified video will be converted to a width of 120 characters of video, only 10 seconds before the conversion. you'll see a file named output.mp4 in your current directory when it completes, have fun ~

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

check video2chars --help for more information.
