Once we obtained the images required for our animation, we proceeded to combine those images in a video, where we specified the frame rate and quality. Finally, we rendered the video using the ffmpeg library.

In the next chapter, we will learn about the popular open source image processing library, OpenCV, and get it set up on the Raspberry Pi. We will also implement some interesting projects, such as video processing, logical operations on an image, colorspace conversions, and much ...
