I. Concept of movies

persistence of vision. Image retention “allows people to see a series of different images in one continuous motion. The whole process of filmmaking and watching movies to this day is based on this theory.

motion on film

Actually motion on film is just a continuous display of still images (illustration below)

Frame rate per second Frame per second (FPS)

  • The number of frames displayed in 1 second is called the image rate per second (FPS)
  • Plastic films have 24 frames per second (24FPS)
  • PAL (Phase Alternate Line) video with 25 frames per second (25FPS)
  • NTSC (National Television Standards Committee) Video
  • 29.97 images per second (30FPS)
  • Videos used for 15 FPS websites and many other options

4: 3 and 16: 9 video frames There are 2 types of video frame sizes that are widely used today: 4: 3 and 16: 9 corresponding to 2 types of monitor monitors (as shown below)

Pixel pixels for video (pixel aspect ratio) In addition to regular pixels, we have rectangular pixels. For video, it is conventional that X = width of pixels, Y = height of pixels For example: X / Y = 2: 1 Usually people only write X value, and Y implies 1, instead of PAL video pixel is 1.07: 1 only recorded 1.07)

Lines for Scanning (Fields) The images displayed on the screen are generated by the lines of scanning, depending on the type of video there will be different scan lines!
