AverageHist : average histogram for VapourSynth

Here is an average histogram script for VapourSynth. It creates a 1-frame clip displaying the average histogram of all frames in a clip. It is intended mainly as a diagnosis tool for color correction/grading, to show the overall characteristics of a clip.
This script requires the histogram plugin to be loaded and is quite slow since it has to process all frames of the clip.

The script:
Code:
# averagehist.py : average histogram for vapoursynth
# author : ganymede
# requirement : histogram

class AverageHist():
	"""Average histogram for vapoursynth."""
	def __init__(self, core):
		"""core : vapoursynth's core instance."""
		self.core = core
	
	def get_hist(self, clip, mode):
		"""Returns a cropped histogram."""
		if mode == 'Levels':
			clip = self.core.hist.Levels(clip)
			clip = self.core.std.CropRel(clip, (clip.width - 256), 0, 0, (clip.height - 256) )
		elif mode == 'Color':
			clip = self.core.hist.Color(clip)
			clip = self.core.std.CropRel(clip, (clip.width - 256), 0, 0, (clip.height - 256) )
		elif mode == 'Color2':
			clip = self.core.hist.Color2(clip)
			clip = self.core.std.CropRel(clip, (clip.width - 256), 0, 0, (clip.height - 256) )
		elif mode == 'Combined1':
			c1 = self.core.hist.Levels(clip)
			c1 = self.core.std.CropRel(c1, (c1.width - 256), 0, 0, (c1.height - 256) )
			c2 = self.core.hist.Color2(clip)
			c2 = self.core.std.CropRel(c2, (c2.width - 256), 0, 0, (c2.height - 256) )
			clip = self.core.std.StackVertical([c1,c2])
		elif mode == "Combined2":
			c1 = self.core.hist.Levels(clip)
			c1 = self.core.std.CropRel(c1, (c1.width - 256), 0, 0, (c1.height - 256) )
			c2 = self.core.hist.Color2(clip)
			c2 = self.core.std.CropRel(c2, (c2.width - 256), 0, 0, (c2.height - 256) )
			c3 = self.core.hist.Classic(clip)
			c3 = self.core.std.CropRel(c3, (c3.width - 256), 0, 0, 0 )
			c4 = self.core.std.StackVertical([c1,c2])
			if c3.height < c4.height:
				c3 = self.core.std.AddBorders(c3, 0, 0, 0, (c4.height - c3.height), [0,128,128])
			elif c3.height > c4.height:
				c4 = self.core.std.AddBorders(c4, 0, 0, 0, (c3.height - c4.height), [0,128,128])
			clip = self.core.std.StackHorizontal([c3,c4])
		else:
			clip = self.core.hist.Classic(clip)
			clip = self.core.std.CropRel(clip, (clip.width - 256), 0, 0, 0 )
		return clip

	def get_average(self, clip, mode='Classic'):
		"""mode can be one of 'Classic', 'Levels', 'Color', 'Color2', 'Combined1' or 'Combined2'."""
		hist = self.get_hist(clip,mode)
		average = hist[0]
		for i in range(1, clip.num_frames):
			average = self.core.std.Merge( [average, hist[i]], ( 1.0/(i+1) ) )
		return average

def usage():
	msg = '''Usage :
	import averagehist
	AH = averagehist.AverageHist(core)
	clip = AH.get_average(clip, mode='Classic')'''
	print(msg)

if __name__ == '__main__':
	usage()
Save this code as averagehist.py and copy it in your local python site-packages (e.g. C:\Python33\Lib\site-packages).

Usage example :
Code:
import averagehist
AH = averagehist.AverageHist(core)
clip = AH.get_average(clip, mode='Classic')
Note that it can be useful to analyze only a specific range of frames in a clip:
Code:
clip = AH.get_average(clip[0:100], 'Levels')
The "mode" argument can be one of 'Classic', 'Levels', 'Color', 'Color2', 'Combined1' or 'Combined2'. The default mode is 'Classic'.
The "combined" modes return several histograms at once :
  • 'Combined1' returns both 'Levels' and 'Color2' histograms.
  • 'Combined2' returns 'Classic', 'Levels' and 'Color2' histograms.
AverageHist is a python class with 2 functions :
  • get_hist(clip,mode) returns a cropped histogram of the desired mode
  • get_average(clip, mode) returns the average histogram of the clip
