How many frames is a zoetrope?
Ideally, you will have 24 frames-per-second. The minimum is 12. If you have a zoetrope that can spin at one rotation per second (which is fast) you will need 12 frames to get rid of flicker.
How does a zoetrope work?
The zoetrope consists of a cylinder with cuts vertically in the sides. As the cylinder spins, the user looks through the cuts at the pictures across. The scanning of the slits keeps the pictures from simply blurring together, and the user sees a rapid succession of images, producing the illusion of motion.
How does a Phenakistoscope work?
How it works: The phenakistoscope uses the persistence of motion principle to create an illusion of motion. The phenakistoscope consisted of two discs mounted on the same axis. The first disc had slots around the edge, and the second contained drawings of successive action, drawn around the disc in concentric circles.
What is the difference between Zoetrope and Praxinoscope?
A Zoetrope is a open cylinder with slits on the side of the open cylinder. Praxinoscope has mirrors in the middle with frames at the side that's been placed inside a shallow outer cylinder, to see the movement of the animation you have to spin it and look at the mirrors.
