Rapid Movie - The general purpose of RNS:: Rapid Movie is capturing film frames at a rate much slower than a playback speed. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster. Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye become very pronounced.
The following photography and cinematography techniques are supported by RNS:: Rapid Movie:
* Time-lapse - each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back.
* Stop motion - an animation technique which makes static objects appear to move.
* Sequential shooting - pictures are captured one after another in equal intervals.
ll video recordings created by Rapid Movie are saved in the QuickTime movie format (*.mov)
All photo sequences shot by Rapid Movie are saved in the JPEG image format (*.jpg)
To play QuickTime movie files created by RNS:: Rapid Movie, you may use QuickTime Player on your PC or Mac, or The Core Pocket Media Player (TCPMP) on your Treo.
There are 3 operating modes in RNS:: Rapid Movie:
* Single Photo - captures still pictures just like the "Camera" application. This simple mode does not actually create movies or photo sequences, but one shot a time.
* Photo Series - takes pictures sequentially in equal intervals, and saves them as separate JPEG files. You can adjust the interval between consecutive shots.
* Moving Video - takes pictures sequentially in equal intervals, and saves them all as a single MOV file. You can adjust the interval between consecutive shots, as well as the playback rate.

How to create an animation?
Movie recorded with Rapid MovieThe animation presented to the right was created with Rapid Movie. The toy-bulldozer is not a remote-controlled vehicle. It is not even equipped with an engine. Frames of the animation were captured in equal intervals with the delay of 5 seconds. During the delays, the toy's position was manually changed, making a slight difference between contiguous frames. The static pictures were then combined into a single fast-playing image sequence, creating a moving video.
