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.
