gif module is used for gif recording.
class Gif – Gif recorder¶
You can use the gif module to record small video clips. Note that gif files save
uncompressed image data. So, they are best for recording short video clips that
you want to share. Use
mjpeg for long clips.
import sensor, gif # Setup camera. sensor.reset() sensor.set_pixformat(sensor.GRAYSCALE) sensor.set_framesize(sensor.QQVGA) sensor.skip_frames() # Create the gif object. g = gif.Gif("example.gif") # Add frames. for i in range(100): g.add_frame(sensor.snapshot()) # Finalize. g.close()
- class gif.Gif(filename[, width[, height[, color[, loop=True]]]])¶
Create a Gif object which you can add frames to.
filenameis the path to save the gif recording to.
widthis automatically set equal to the image sensor horizontal resolution unless explicitly overridden.
heightis automatically set equal to the image sensor vertical resolution unless explicitly overridden.
coloris automatically set equal to the image sensor color mode unless explicitly overridden:
loopwhen True results in the gif automatically looping on playback.
Returns the width (horizontal resolution) for the gif object.
Returns the height (vertical resolution) for the gif object.
Returns the file size of the gif so far. This value is updated after adding frames.
Returns if the gif object had loop set in its constructor.
- add_frame(image[, delay=10])¶
Add an image to the gif recording. The image width, height, and color mode, must be equal to the same width, height, and color modes used in the constructor for the gif.
delayis the number of centi-seconds to wait before displaying this frame after the previous frame (if not the first frame).
Finalizes the gif recording. This method must be called once the recording is complete to make the file viewable.
