Introducing the moviola.com Visual Glossary of Terms

As part of our efforts to further the art of moviemaking, we’re collaborating with our partners at moviola.com to offer you entries from their visual glossary of terms here on the Filmtools’ blog.

If you’re not familiar with it, the moviola.com Visual Glossary of Terms is designed to demystify key filmmaking concepts by explaining them in a visual way. Instead of a vague block of text with cryptic illustrations, each entry uses animations to articulate even the most esoteric terms.

Ever wondered what chrominance and 4:2:2 sub-sampling is all about? What about debayering? How about diegesis?

Check out the blog each week for the latest term. This week: Feature film formats.
