VDF in GIMP
#1
Is it possible to use VDF plugin video effects as picture effects in GIMP, and if not, could you add the feature? Could I convert a VDF to PY somehow? Could I download a plugin and open as an effect, and type the path and open VDF in GIMP?

Yes, I know, videos are in motion. At least applying as 1 frame might work... Right?

Nobody here develops for the Gimp core.

Some effects are classic and may already exist for still images in Gimp.

For the rest you can always write a Python script tat extracts a layer as an image, calls ffmpeg or other to make it a video, apply the effect, and use ffmpeg again to extract a frame, and import the image in Gimp.

No

You will need to ask the Gimp developers. No developers on this forum. Post a feature request here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/-/issues
...but do not expect anything to happen. Gimp is a bitmap editor not a video editor.

Looking at what is available, http://www.infognition.com/VideoEnhancer/filters.html many of the effects, noise / distortion / colour effects are already there as plugins and scripts. One that contains many effects is the gimp_gmic_qt plugin http://www.gmic.eu If you have ffmpeg installed then gmic can open a video clip as image layers (not sure this works with Windows) However considering a few seconds of video can be hundreds of frames, it is not very practical. Also no way of exporting as a video. You can export as an animation using webp format.

No. Use something else, a frame server such as avisynth with avidemux or virtualdub.

Not saying it is impossible, just more involved than it is worth. This a 'watercolour' effect using gmic https://youtu.be/-TVYsZjPf20

Edit: This only possible in linux (no Windows version), FlowBlade video editor uses gmic filters. This a 'cartoonise' https://youtu.be/jz8MaOXgREQ

I tried both the EXE and ZIP versions. When I run gmic_gimp_qt.exe, there are files missing, and won't open anything but error messages saying that files were missing, and when I tried running copy of "ffmpeg.exe" added to the program folder, it did the same thing. Could you please send me the missing files for Gmic?:




libgomp-1.dll
libgcc_s_seh-1.dll
libstdc++-6.dll
libbabl-01-0.dll

I'm not trying to interfere, or anything, just trying to offer choices, but there is a package called "Gimp G.A.P." that  installs a sizable "Video" menu into your Gimp menu bar including Video--> Split Video Into Frames---> Extract Videorange; that gives you the opportunity to edit specific frames as layers, as well.

Do I need to install it in a certain location? I tried to open GAP.EXE, but it still gives me a missing file error...:

cygwin1.dll

It is installed in the following location with no spaces:
D:\ProgramFiles_NoSpace\GAP\gap-4.11.1

I got the video plugins to work, but now how do I open a video-frame? Most buttons in "Video" is disabled upon startup, and won't read when I tried "File > Open > X:\XXX\XXX.wmv". I opened a picture but I don't know how to import a video, do I need to convert to AVI or MP4 or MOV? What formats are supported?

Is it possible to load all frames as one picture like the GIF setting does?

Here is a very good "fix-it" narrative from Rich
https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-Instal...-Gimp-2-10

I installed GAP back in the Gimp 2.8.x days, and have since upgraded Gimp to version 2.10.14 and nothing in the  Gap  menu seems to be disabled.  So maybe I was fortunate to go the path I have.

At the time I just wanted  to extract video sequences from DVDs and make animated gifs with them, and it worked very well for that. I've always wanted to dig deeper into GAP and try some of it's other features, but like so many things, too little time.

Not to sound snide, but I just ran a google for "installing Gimp Gap" and was given several good sources. They can  likely give you better guidance than I can.

1. I got the video thing to work, I extracted video frames to pictures, reversed the order, reversed the audio in a different program, and combined it back into a reversed video.

2. How do I use .PY files? I tried copying the code to Python-Fu, I tried double clicking the .PY file, I tried Googling an app to open it, i tried using Command Prompt, I tried using several different Python apps, and the d+++ thing won't work. The file is here; https://github.com/IGLICT/DeepFaceDrawing-Jittor but I literally had to go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSunooUTwKs and ask if they could convert it to exe, because what am I supposed to do at this point? This type of file is frustrating me, and I just want it to open and run.
HELP
