full motion video[edit]

This was discussed at RFD; the consensus was to keep it, but DCDuring questioned whether our definition was even correct. —RuakhTALK 22:12, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

I've made some changes to the page, but it is essentially correct. It's just a video file used in a video game. CyberSkull 08:05, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
The usage in the Wikipedia article is not held up elsewhere. It seems to be a tautology for just plain "video" in contrast to anything that isn't so media rich. Conrad.Irwin 21:07, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
This term seems increasingly dated. It harkens to the times when some video consisted of animations moving on fixed backgrounds. This was what everyone wanted, the "ultimate". It is certainly not limited to video games. I'm not active enough in this area to take a run at it, though. DCDuring TALK 00:08, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
I am quite sure that this just means video (in the sense of proper, fully moving recorded photography) as opposed to other forms of computer graphics. It was touted as a feature in games of the 1990s (when enough storage for video became available on hard disks and CD-ROMs), with reference to cut scenes. I just asked a friend of mine who works in television and video signal processing, and he said: "It is just an ancient term from the 90s when this stuff was new on computers. Puff words to make it sound more important, like multimedia." Equinox 00:38, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
Full-motion Video, also known as continuous-motion video is being used also to refer to a system's capability on displaying video with a frame rate of 30 fps for NTSC signals or 25 fps for PAL signals. It is far from being obsolete thinking about aerospace, for example. A videoconferencing systems reference here [1].El imp 11:24, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Cleaned up, added sense, but still no cites for challenged sense since March 2008. DCDuring TALK 14:55, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

RFV failed, sense removed. —RuakhTALK 17:45, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
