In cinematography, bipacking, or a bipack, is the process of loading two reels of film into a camera, so that they both pass through the camera gate together.
Collimated light is light whose rays are parallel, and therefore will spread minimally as it propagates.
Compositing is the combining of visual elements from separate sources into single images, often to create the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene.
A contact print is a photographic image produced from film; sometimes from a film negative, and sometimes from a film positive.
A diffusion filter is a translucent photographic filter used for a special effect.
Digital compositing is the process of digitally assembling multiple images to make a final image, typically for print, motion pictures or screen display.
Experimental film, experimental cinema or avant-garde cinema is a mode of filmmaking that rigorously re-evaluates cinematic conventions and explores non-narrative forms and alternatives to traditional narratives or methods of working.
A film base is a transparent substrate which acts as a support medium for the photosensitive emulsion that lies atop it.
Film preservation, or film restoration, describes a series of ongoing efforts among film historians, archivists, museums, cinematheques, and non-profit organizations to rescue decaying film stock and preserve the images which they contain.
A film recorder is a graphical output device for transferring digital images to photographic film.
Filmmaking (or, in an academic context, film production) is the process of making a film, generally in the sense of films intended for extensive theatrical exhibition.
Linwood G. Dunn, A.S.C. (December 27, 1904 in Brooklyn, New York – May 20, 1998 in Los Angeles, California) was a pioneer of visual special effects in motion pictures and inventor of related technology.
A machine uses power to apply forces and control movement to perform an intended action.
Mattes are used in photography and special effects filmmaking to combine two or more image elements into a single, final image.
A minicomputer, or colloquially mini, is a class of smaller computers that was developed in the mid-1960s and sold for much less than mainframe and mid-size computers from IBM and its direct competitors.
A motion picture film scanner is a device used in digital filmmaking to scan original film for storage as high-resolution digital intermediate files.
The movie camera, film camera or cine-camera is a type of photographic camera which takes a rapid sequence of photographs on an image sensor or on a film.
A movie projector is an opto-mechanical device for displaying motion picture film by projecting it onto a screen.
A photograph or photo is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic medium such as a CCD or a CMOS chip.
Photographic emulsion is a light-sensitive colloid used in film-based photography.
Rear projection (also known as process photography) is part of many in-camera effects cinematic techniques in film production for combining foreground performances with pre-filmed backgrounds.
In optics, the refractive index or index of refraction of a material is a dimensionless number that describes how light propagates through that medium.
The Schüfftan process is a movie special effect named after its inventor, Eugen Schüfftan (1893–1977).
Special effects (often abbreviated as SFX, SPFX, or simply FX) are illusions or visual tricks used in the film, television, theatre, video game and simulator industries to simulate the imagined events in a story or virtual world.
Star Wars (later retitled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas.
Tetrachloroethylene, also known under the systematic name tetrachloroethene, or perchloroethylene ("perc" or "PERC"), and many other names, is a chlorocarbon with the formula Cl2C.
VistaVision is a higher resolution, widescreen variant of the 35 mm motion picture film format which was created by engineers at Paramount Pictures in 1954.
A wet-transfer film gate, or wet gate for short, is a film gate that is submerged in liquid, used for film restoration and archival scanning.
