This project is the implement of RIFE: Real-Time Intermediate Flow Estimation for Video Frame Interpolation. Currently, our model can run 30+FPS for 2X 720p interpolation on a 2080Ti GPU. It supports arbitrary-timestep interpolation between a pair of images.

CLI Usage


git clone git@github.com:hzwer/arXiv2020-RIFE.git
cd arXiv2020-RIFE
pip3 install -r requirements.txt


Video Frame Interpolation

You can use our demo video or your own video.

python3 inference_video.py --exp=1 --video=video.mp4 

(generate video_2X_xxfps.mp4)

python3 inference_video.py --exp=2 --video=video.mp4

(for 4X interpolation)

python3 inference_video.py --exp=1 --video=video.mp4 --scale=0.5

(If your video has very high resolution such as 4K, we recommend set --scale=0.5 (default 1.0). If you generate disordered pattern on your videos, try set --scale=2.0. This parameter control the process resolution for optical flow model.)

python3 inference_video.py --exp=2 --img=input/

(to read video from pngs, like input/0.png ... input/612.png, ensure that the png names are numbers)

python3 inference_video.py --exp=2 --video=video.mp4 --fps=60

(add slomo effect, the audio will be removed)

python3 inference_video.py --video=video.mp4 --montage --png

(if you want to montage the origin video and save the png format output)

Image Interpolation

python3 inference_img.py --img img0.png img1.png --exp=4

(2^4=16X interpolation results) After that, you can use pngs to generate mp4:

ffmpeg -r 10 -f image2 -i output/img%d.png -s 448x256 -c:v libx264 -pix_fmt yuv420p output/slomo.mp4 -q:v 0 -q:a 0

You can also use pngs to generate gif:

ffmpeg -r 10 -f image2 -i output/img%d.png -s 448x256 -vf "split[s0][s1];[s0]palettegen=stats_mode=single[p];[s1][p]paletteuse=new=1" output/slomo.gif

Run in docker

Place the pre-trained models in train_log/\*.pkl (as above)

Building the container:

docker build -t rife -f docker/Dockerfile .

Running the container:

docker run --rm -it -v $PWD:/host rife:latest inference_video --exp=1 --video=untitled.mp4 --output=untitled_rife.mp4
docker run --rm -it -v $PWD:/host rife:latest inference_img --img img0.png img1.png --exp=4

Using gpu acceleration (requires proper gpu drivers for docker):

docker run --rm -it --gpus all -v /dev/dri:/dev/dri -v $PWD:/host rife:latest inference_video --exp=1 --video=untitled.mp4 --output=untitled_rife.mp4
