The Foundation of Motion for VFX: Frames and Codecs

  • Wallace Jackson


Now that you have an understanding of the fundamental concepts, terms, and principles of digital image new media content, it is time to get into moving imagery, since motion is a major part of VFX project design. The digital video new media asset type has its own concepts, terms, and principles, and therefore I'm going to take a chapter to show how 2D raster images become 4D digital video assets. We will be looking at the concepts behind analog video (or film) and how it is digitized into digital video using popular "codecs," or COmpressor-DECompressor algorithms, via digital video encoding software and plug-ins.
