Frame is an individual but complete image. Every shot is made up of continuous frames.
For film, 1 second footage contains 24 frames. And you can physically see the frames along a piece of movie film, just like your normal still camera film. When itís projected on screen at 24 frames per second rate, human eyes canít perceive those individual frames. What you see is the moving picture.
For video, 1 second footage contains either 29.97 (NTSC) or 25 (PAL, SECAM) frames.
Note: NTSC is the television system mainly used in US, Canada, Japan and some other countries.
PAL is used in many countries in Europe, Asia.
SECAM is used in France, Russia, and Eastern European countries.
For video, a frame actually has two fields.
OK, enough. This book is not meant for technical stuff.
