Processing movie (AEV, MP4) in KNIME

I’ve been trying to see if there is a way of loading movies (AEV or MP4 format) into knime, and then being able to access each frame as an individual image in a stack?

I’ve tried a few ‘obvious’ things but not had any joy - is it possible?

Thanks

Hi @s.roughley,

since there is no video node you could use opencv-python in a python node.

Best Regards
Andrew

You can try to load the videos with the Image Reader. The image reader can load n-dimensional images (for RGB videos X,Y,Channel,Time would be the dimensions of the image). Depending on the codec of the videos, it could work.

Thanks Christian - sadly this easy approach did not work. @Andrew_Steel - I will take a look at the OpenCV library - I think there is also a Java version so may be able to write a node to do the job

Thanks

Steve
