problem with videoWriter not closing

2 views (last 30 days)
Hi folks,
I am creating a video and having trouble with the videoWriter not closing, or taking a very long time to close.
May I please ask how to fix this? The code is as follows:
writerObj = VideoWriter(mainVideoName);
writerObj.FrameRate = 10;
open(writerObj);
for j = 1 : numMainImages
mainImg = imread([imageMainFolder imageMainFiles(j).name]);
mainImg = mainImg(:,:,1:3);
cropImg = imread([cropsFolder cropFiles(j).name]);
threshImg = im2uint8(imread([threshFolder threshFiles(j).name]));
h = figure;
h(1) = subplot(2, 2, 1);
image(cropImg, "Parent", h(1));
h(2) = subplot(2, 2, 2);
image(threshImg, "Parent", h(2));
h(3) = subplot(2, 2, 3:4);
image(mainImg, "Parent", h(3));
myText = ['Temperature = ', num2str(myTemp(j)), '^{o}C'];
annotation('textbox', [0.4, 0.55, 0,0], 'string', myText, "FitBoxToText","on");
h(2).Colormap = gray(256);
for k = 1:3
h(k).XAxis.Visible = "off";
h(k).YAxis.Visible = 'off';
end
thisFrame = getframe(gca);
writeVideo(writerObj, thisFrame);
end
close(writerObj);

@Teshan Rezel: Do not remove this question. Simply ask your new question and insert a link to this thread to avoid confusions. You can add a linl to the new question here also. Then everything is fine.

hi @Image Analyst, thanks for the response! It appears it doesn't actually get to the close(writeObj) statement as I left the programme running over 2 days and had no video files written.
I'm not sure why this is!

yes,sir,may be use image replace frame to test,such as
writerObj = VideoWriter(mainVideoName);
writerObj.FrameRate = 10;
open(writerObj);
for j = 1 : numMainImages
mainImg = imread([imageMainFolder imageMainFiles(j).name]);
mainImg = mainImg(:,:,1:3);
cropImg = imread([cropsFolder cropFiles(j).name]);
threshImg = im2uint8(imread([threshFolder threshFiles(j).name]));
h = figure;
h(1) = subplot(2, 2, 1);
image(cropImg, "Parent", h(1));
h(2) = subplot(2, 2, 2);
image(threshImg, "Parent", h(2));
h(3) = subplot(2, 2, 3:4);
image(mainImg, "Parent", h(3));
myText = ['Temperature = ', num2str(myTemp(j)), '^{o}C'];
annotation('textbox', [0.4, 0.55, 0,0], 'string', myText, "FitBoxToText","on");
h(2).Colormap = gray(256);
for k = 1:3
h(k).XAxis.Visible = "off";
h(k).YAxis.Visible = 'off';
end
thisFrame = frame2im(getframe(gca));
writeVideo(writerObj, thisFrame);
end
close(writerObj);

@yanqi liu hi, thank you for this but it doesn't seem to solve the issue just yet!

I haven't read the rest of the thread, but can you explain what is different between what you need and what this suggestion does? Yanqi might be able to help you if you make it clear what should be different.
