This paper discusses a system for digital animation which has been developed at JRC Ispra. The system consists of a SUN sparcstation 10 with a Parallax Xvideo board installed. It enables a video source to be recorded as a digital movie onto disk. The digital movies can be played back at over 15 frames/sec on the SUN monitor. Special software has been written to capture an image within a window and to JPEG compress it using the Xvideo board. A demonstration video of this technique has been made and recorded on the SUN station. Software is specially written to display the results of applications using a variety of visualisation techniques. The method can be applied to any application visualised on a workstation.
