ImageSequence Module

The ImageSequence module contains a wrapper class that lets you iterate over the frames of an image sequence.

Extracting frames from an animation

from PIL import Image, ImageSequence

im = Image.open("animation.fli")

index = 1
for frame in ImageSequence.Iterator(im):
    frame.save("frame%d.png" % index)
    index += 1

The Iterator class

class PIL.ImageSequence.Iterator(im)

This class implements an iterator object that can be used to loop over an image sequence.

You can use the [] operator to access elements by index. This operator will raise an IndexError if you try to access a nonexistent frame.

Parameters:im – An image object.
