Recomendations Sought For MP4 Creation Program

Postby PatrickPowers » Wed Mar 24, 2021 2:54 am

I have a program written in Python geometric algebra that produces animations as mp4s. It is quite crude and I'm looking for something better. The requirements are:

Geometric algebra
Ability to draw ellipses.
Can produce standard MP4s.

I'll translate from Python to some other language if I must.

Blender has a Python interface but it is undocumented. I also prefer something much simpler than Blender.

It might be easier to find a process that gets you all of the still frames for the animation. Then, use another program to make the mp4 out of them.

I've been right where you are, searching for that middle ground to enhance Python-generated animations. Eventually, using a mix of more straightforward graphic libraries alongside Python gave me the control to create more sophisticated animations before making them MP4-ready.

When editing those MP4s, my experience with Movavi as an MP4 editor was seamless. It's a straightforward tool that works well on both Mac and Windows, and it is optional but not overcomplicated, either. I've used Movavi to crop, rotate, and trim my videos, which was incredibly handy. It's a user-friendly option that lets you focus on the creative side without getting entangled in unnecessary complexity.

@Embi, as you have placed spam elsewhere on the website, I have removed the link from your post under suspicion this may be potentially unwanted software.

I have no experience with Movavi personally, if you wish to use it, feel free to search it and form your own opinion.

I would always suggest to use open source software where possible but this isn't an area where I have much relevant knowledge.

You might find Manim useful, this is an MIT-licensed tool to create videos from Python scripts. Again though, I don't know anything about it, but I have watched plenty of videos from 3blue1brown who wrote the original version of the software, as well as from other creators since, and found them very aesthetically pleasing. :)
