def draw(): for _ in range(10): py5.rect(py5.random_int(py5.width), py5.random_int(py5.height), 10, 10) py5.save_frame('/tmp/random_squares_####.jpg')
Save the current frame as an image. This method uses the Python library Pillow to write the image, so it can save images in any format that that library supports.
drop_alpha parameter to drop the alpha channel from the image. This defaults to
True. Some image formats such as JPG do not support alpha channels, and Pillow will throw an error if you try to save an image with the alpha channel in that format.
use_thread parameter will save the image in a separate Python thread. This improves performance by returning before the image has actually been written to the file.
This method is the same as save() except it will replace a sequence of
# symbols in the
filename parameter with the frame number. This is useful when saving an image sequence for a running animation. The first frame number will be 1.
save_frame(filename: Union[str, Path, BytesIO], *, format: str = None, drop_alpha: bool = True, use_thread: bool = False, **params) -> None
drop_alpha: bool = True - remove the alpha channel when saving the image
filename: Union[str, Path, BytesIO] - output filename
format: str = None - image format, if not determined from filename extension
params: - keyword arguments to pass to the PIL.Image save method
use_thread: bool = False - write file in separate thread
