Film Technology First Movie: The Horse in Motion (1878) created by Edward James Muggeridge
The movie is a series of pictures of a horse on a track.

The same idea is used in a phenakistoscope, a revolving disk, to make an animation of people dancing. From The Silent Era
to Talkies Computer
Animated Movie To the
Colorful World The Silent Era: Movies have no sound or dialogue. Communicated with mime gestures and title cards. People wanted to have movies with sound and dialogue but the synchronization of the sound and the movie was at the time too complex until the late 1920s.

End of Silent Era: Ended with the release of the Jazz Singer. The first feature-length motion picture with synchronized dialogue sequences, its release heralded the commercial ascendance of the "talkies" (movies with synchronized sound). Modern 3D
&IMAX The earliest motion picture stocks were orthochromatic and recorded blue and green light, but not red. This hindered color film in the beginning; the first films with color in them utilized aniline dyes in order to create an artificial color.

Film tinting, a process that gave the image a uniform mono-chromatic color, was popular during the silent era, with specific colors employed for certain narrative effects. Modern color film is made up of many different layers all working together to create the color image. In color negative films there are three main color layers. Traditional Animation Techniques VS. Computer-generated Imagery (CG) Cel animation: technique in which figures are drawn and painted on cels, place over a background . Stop motion: take photographs of subjects every time their position are slightly altered 2-D storyboard voice actors record lines 3-D model with X,Y,Z axises
avars: control units assigned to each part of model (give character real internal skeletons!)
dress the characters
calculate the best way to connect the avars: animate the character!
render characters design! Motion Capture gathering data from an actor's performance for use in digital animation The IMAX system has its roots in EXPO '67 in Montreal, Canada, but at that time, multi-screen films are the hit of the fair. The Birth of IMAX 30 years later... 1997 - IMAX is awarded the sole Oscar for Scientific and Technical Achievement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. 2003 - Warner Brothers begins the collaboration with IMAX 2007 - IMAX signs a four picture deal with DreamWorks Animation. At 2009, with the global success of the film Avatar directed by James Cameron, the domination of IMAX and 3D technology in the film industry has officially started. IMAX increases the resolution and size of the image by using a much larger film frame In China, there has been a huge increase in the number of IMAX theaters after Avatar's publication. 2010 2012 13 78 6 Times The 3D technology has been invented long ago,

It did not be widely applied until the avatar aroused the worldwide popularity of 3D technology. 3D Camera: record the images as seen from two perspectives Special projection hardware&3D Glasses: provide the illusion of depth when viewing the film IMAX win the recognition of most directors

What about 3D? "All things are better in 3D"
- James Cameron "We'd been too restricted by the technology"
