Video FLIX

The Video effect or “print flix” is comprised of a brief out take of motion footage.

The source of the footage is typically from a HD video camera, motion picture reel, high speed photography clip, or a digital stills camera in burst mode (continuous fire).

There are two types of Motion:

  1. Cyclical Motion: has no start or end point
  2. Terminal Motion: has a clearly defined start and end point
Cyclical Motion
  • A spinning propellar
  • Skipping on the spot
Terminal Motion
  • Striking a match
  • Hitting a ball
