Video Player Image

Load image files and send them as frames to the video output.

In the setup-panel-tab-video you can find a tool to export a video into separate frames as jpeg images: convert video to frames.


video out

Video output flow(s).

video in

Video input flow(s).

show list

Shows the files list.


Output ntensity.

file number

File number combobox.

The numerical value corresponds to the selected file number in files list.

  • -1: no file is selected.
  • 0: the first file in the list is selected.
  • 1: the second file in the list is selected
  • etc.


Records the video input flow and saves frames as separated images.

  • The save folder is defined by the directory option. If the directory option is empty, Usine will use the default folder set in setup-panel-tab-folder.
  • The saved file name has a prefix defined by the prefix option.
  • If the option add to recorded image to list is ON, each recorded frame will be added in the images list.
  • If the option use long filenames is ON, the filename of the recorded image will include the name of the current patch.

rec one frame

Records one input frame and store it in memory (no image is saved). It can be used to memorize a frame to reuse it later.

number of files

Gives the number of files in the list.

size reduction factor

Reduction size factor applied to the original size of the video.

  • 1: no size reduction
  • 3/4: reduction by 3/4
  • etc.

This is useful to

  • reduce the size of video and therefore reduce the CPU consumption of video filters,
  • fit to the output display resolution.

This can reduce efficiently the number of pixels to process in the video flow and then reduce the CPU load of video effects.

A 1920 × 1080 (2073600 pixels per frame) video with a size factor of 2/3 gives a 1280 x 720 resolution (921600 pixel per frame) so the CPU load will be reduced by 50%.


Video resolution width (once reduction factor applied).


Video resolution height (once reduction factor applied).


Selects the next file in the list.


Selects the previous file in the list.

next rand
