# How good is Sage for videos?

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to the Sage world and was thinking about using it for one of my university projects. The problem is that for that I would have to be able to read videos, analyze pixels in frames, etc.

So my question is: can Sage be used in such a way?

If a certain format or codec or whatever is necessary, that could be arranged, but I would like to know if it is at all possible before deciding whether or not to use Sage for this specific project. I have searched google, the Sage documentation and this forum, but found nothing even close to what I need :(

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Anything Python can do, Sage can do, and you may want to see things like http://www.nilesjohnson.net/seven-manifolds.html which is a pretty impressive example of what you can do from scratch. That's not exactly what you are asking, but might give you some ideas.
