Hi everyone
The following two Matlab code (which they do copy new avi files from another)
First one:
- By using VideoWriter
clear all;
close all; %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
[filename pathname] = uigetfile('*.avi','File Selector');
vid = strcat(pathname, filename);
obj = mmreader(vid);
vid = read(obj);
Frames = obj.NumberOfFrames;
new10=VideoWriter('output10.avi');
for x = 1 : Frames
blocks{x}=vid(:,:,:,x);
end
open(new10);
for f=1:1
ss=im2frame(blocks{f});
writeVideo(new10,ss);
end
close(new10);
msgbox('end of operation','Message','warn');
Second one:
- By using avifile
close all
clear all
[filename pathname] = uigetfile('*.avi','File Selector');
vid = strcat(pathname, filename);
obj = mmreader(vid);
vid = read(obj);
frames = obj.NumberOfFrames;
%%
new10=avifile('output10.avi','compression','None');
for x = 1 : frames
a=vid(:,:,:,x);
blocks{x}=a;
end
%%
for f=1:frames
new10=add frame(new10,blocks{f});
end
new10=close(new10);
msgbox('end of operation','Message','warn');
After running the first one program the new avi file is different from the original file (the pixels of frames are different).
While, after running the first one program the new avi file is same asthe original file (the pixels of
frames are similar).
Please inform me the reason
Best regards
Majid

@Majid Al-Sirafi: Image Analyst is right: Your code is really hard to read. Please remove the empty lines and use the "{} Code" button. You will see that it inserts two leading spaces and an empty line before and after the code. Finally it will not hurt anymore to read the code.
Omit the darn clear all. There is no benefit in removing all loaded functions from the memory and waste time with reloading them from the slow hard disk.
What differences do you observe? Are the pixels completely different, or might it be a problem of the color map or a rounding effect? Does the compression play a role?

hi dear Jan this is first one
close all
clear all
[filename pathname] = uigetfile('*.avi','File Selector');
vid = strcat(pathname, filename);
obj = mmreader(vid);
vid = read(obj);
Frames = obj.NumberOfFrames;
new10=VideoWriter('output10.avi');
for x = 1 : Frames
blocks{x}=vid(:,:,:,x);
end
open(new10);
for f=1:1
ss=im2frame(blocks{f});
writeVideo(new10,ss);
end
close(new10);
msgbox('end of operation','Message','warn');
and this second one
close all
clear all
[filename pathname] = uigetfile('*.avi','File Selector');
vid = strcat(pathname, filename);
obj = mmreader(vid);
vid = read(obj);
frames = obj.NumberOfFrames;
new10=avifile('output10.avi','compression','None');
for x = 1 : frames
a=vid(:,:,:,x);
blocks{x}=a;
end
for f=1:frames
new10=addframe(new10,blocks{f});
end
new10=close(new10);
msgbox('end of operation','Message','warn');

Why not simply use copyfile()?

Actually, this copy is the first step in video processing. later I want to develop this procedure in another processing not just for copying
