BlankClip

From Avisynth wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

BlankClip produces a solid color video clip with silent audio. The clip passed as an argument is used as a template - for frame rate, image size, and so on, but the template is optional. You can specify as many clip properties explicitly as you wish. By default, BlankClip will produce a pitch-black 10 second clip; 24 fps, 640x480, RGB32, with 16 bit, 44100 Hz, mono, silent audio.

When supplying a template, BlankClip returns a clip with properties copied from that template. If the template is audio-only, you get a blank audio-only clip, and if it's video-only you get a blank video-only clip. If you start to add parameters that force a video track (i.e. width, height or pixel_type) or audio track (i.e. audio_rate, channels or sample_type), the remaining parameters for that track will be the defaults. (AviSynth v2.60)

Blackness is an alias for BlankClip. The parameters are the same.

Syntax and Parameters

BlankClip( [clip clip, int length, int width, int height, string pixel_type,
      float fps, int fps_denominator, int audio_rate, bool stereo, bool sixteen_bit,
      int color, int color_yuv] ) (deprecated)

BlankClip( [clip clip, int length, int width, int height, string pixel_type,
      float fps, int fps_denominator, int audio_rate, int channels, string sample_type,
      int color, int color_yuv] )

Blackness( ...same parameters as BlankClip )

clip  clip =
if supplied, the resulting clip will have the clip properties of the template, except for the properties you define explicitly.
int  length = 240
Length of the resulting clip, in frames.
int  width = 640
int  height = 480
Width and height of the resulting clip.
string  pixel_type = "RGB32"
Pixel type of the resulting clip; it can be any of the following:
RGB24 RGB32 YUY2 YV12 YV16 * YV24 * YV411 * Y8 *
 * AviSynth v2.60
float  fps = 24
Frame rate of the resulting clip.
int  fps_denominator = 1
Specify frame rate in rational form (numerator/denominator). For example, fps=30000,fps_denominator=1001 (approximately 29.97 fps) or fps=24000,fps_denominator=1001 (approximately 23.976 fps).
Note: if fps_denominator is given (even if it is "1"), fps is rounded to the nearest integer.
int  audio_rate = 44100
Sample rate of the (silent) audio.
int  channels = 1
Specifies the number of channels of (silent) audio.
bool  stereo = false
Deprecated: use channels instead.
If true, the (silent) audio is in stereo: channels=2.
string  sample_type = "16bit"
Specifies the audio sample type. It can be "8bit", "16bit", "24bit", "32bit" or "float".
bool  sixteen_bit = true
Deprecated: use sample_type instead.
true and false give both 16 bit, except when a template is used where a different bit is set.
int  color = $000000
Specifies the color of the clip, black (= $000000) by default. See color presets for preset color. See Colors for more information on specifying colors.
int  color_yuv =
Specifies the color of the clip using YUV values. It requires setting pixel_type to one of the YUV formats; otherwise it doesn't do anything.

Examples

# produces a black clip (3000 frames, width 720, height 576, framerate 25),
# with a silent audio track (16 bit 44.1 kHz stereo):
BlankClip(length=3000, width=720, height=576, fps=25, color=$000000)
# produces a black clip (3000 frames) with the remaining clip properties of the AVI:
video = AviSource("E:\pdwork\DO-Heaven.AVI")
BlankClip(video, length=3000, color=$000000)
# produces a black clip (3000 frames) with the remaining clip properties of the AVI:
# produces a black clip (3000 frames) with the remaining clip properties of the AVI:
video = AviSource("E:\pdwork\DO-Heaven.AVI")
audio = BlankClip(video, audio_rate=48000)
AudioDub(video, audio)

Changes

v2.55 Added color_yuv.
v2.58 Added channels and sample_type.
v2.60 Added pixel_type="YV24"/"YV16"/"YV411"/"Y8".
Supply useful defaults for new Audio/Video when using a Video/Audio only template clip.
