(FR) ANIMATION.
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus for generating an animated sequence of pictures, which comprises: means for storing data defining a plurality of pictures and data defining, for each, a temporal position in said sequence; means for reading stored data and generating therefrom data defining a plurality of intervening pictures occurring at time positions between those of said stored pictures, and providing a transition therebetween; and means for editing said data so as to amend said sequence.
(FR) Appareil de génération d'une séquence animée de dessins, comportant: un dispositif de stockage de données déterminant une pluralité d'images et des données déterminant, pour chaque image, une position temporelle dans la séquence; un dispositif lecteur de données stockées destiné à générer à partir de celles-ci des données déterminant une pluralité d'images intermédiaires destinées à occuper des positions temporelles comprises entre celles des images stockées, de manière à assurer une transition entre ces dernières; ainsi qu'un dispositif de correction desdites données destiné à corriger ladite séquence.
