The visual look and feel of movies is something that interests me. So I built a tool to visualize it.
Videosplatter is a tool to splat a video file into a mosaic of individual frames. It shows you at a glance the look and feel of the entire video.
You can see color palettes, light and shadow, and scene transitions in a single image.
It can generate mosaics:
Or "movie barcodes":
It also can generate "colorfulness" and contrast stats about the video. Colorfulness is the definition from Hasler and Süsstrunk 2003.
Add up colorfulness and contrast scores to get a "Visual 🌶️ Factor". Now you can complain about bland, blue-gray, washed out movies with science!
You can install it with
pip install videosplatter. Let me know if you use it for something cool!
