Have you ever watched an animated film? Do you know how they are made? Animated films are composed of many still pictures of a subject, each of which represents a split second in time. In this cartoon, each separate picture shows a minute change in the position of the character so that when put in sequence a complete pattern of movement is shown. When the film is ran, the eye is presented with 24 static images per second, but the retina can only register two separate signals per second. So the images run into each other and continuous movement is seen.
