VOCABULARY:  click links for detailed glossary page:

  • THAUMATROPE: an optical toy made up of a disk with a single image on each side, in which the image appears to combine when spinning. 

  • PHENAKISTOSCOPEan early animation device made from a spinning disc attached to a handle, with a series of drawings showing frames of an animation 

  • ZOETROPE: a device that produces the illusion of motion from a rapid succession of static pictures inside a spinning cylinder with vertical slits.

  • FLIPBOOK:  book with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion or some other change.

  • PRAXINOSCOPE: an animation device, using a strip of pictures around the inner surface of a spinning cylinder and an inner circle of mirrors reflecting the pictures as the wheel is turned. 

  • LOOPING ANIMATION: an animation that begins and ends on the same frame. 

  • PERSISTENCE OF VISION:  in a movie projector the wheel like part that rotates just far enough to pull the film down one frame, pauses and then rotates again. 

  • SPROCKET: in a movie projector the wheel like-part that rotates just far enough to pull the film down one frame, pauses and then rotates again.

  • APERTURE GATE: in a movie projector the part that masks off a single frame of the movie so that the light passes through only one frame at a time.

  • FILM SHUTTER: in a movie projector the part that interrupts the light during the time when frames are switching, 24 times per second. Viewers do not notice this interruption, due to the persistence of vision.

  • LAMP: in a movie projector the part that produces a very bright beam of light that is projected through the film frame using a lens.

  • FRAME RATE: The number of individual frames recorded every second of video. 

  • MOTION BLUR: the apparent streaking of moving objects in a photograph or a sequence of frames
